Batch 096 Best Before 19/03/16
Tasted on 5/30/13 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at Binny’s quite a long time ago. Pours hazy dark auburn with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to an average layer of uneven lace. The nose is sweet caramel malt with with some toffee, vanilla, and a smoked peaty aroma just underlying. The flavor is the same caramel malt and toffee, with the peat, smoke, and a charred, roasty flavor. The body is full with just below average carbonation and a long super roasted and smokey, peated finish.
Sehr torfiger Geruch. Trocken torfig-rauchiger Antrunk. Geringfügig alkoholisch, helles Malz, etwas Karamell. Steigende Intensität, dabei trocken bleibend, intensiv, bedingt süffig, vollmundig. Wenig schokoladig, erstaunlich wenig süß. 9/10/8/10/10/9 wchesser (2121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2017
Drank about 6 months after best by date but has held up well. Super peaty nose with a lot of medicinal iodine. Taste is fairly dry with some toffee, and smoke. Aftertaste not unlike smoking a fresh hand rolled cigarette with quality tobacco. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Amber color, with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is leather, slightly alcoholic, mild peat and some light hops. Flavor has some leathery, alcoholic, heavy peat with also some sweet matiness and fruits. 2/12

Looking through the cellar. I believe this was from a Chicago trip to Wesr Lakeview Liquors. This is good, but I believe it may be beyond its prime. Smells sweet malt, but there’s an off smell that’s almost a touch metallic, but there’s some whisky too. Tastes initially a little dirty, I believe this is the scotch. It’s very uniquely bready, smokey. I warm up to it more and more with every sip. It’s boozy and sweet and smoke. Quite nice. kevinator (2595) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Stumbled upon this and grabbed it; however, age may have lessened the effects of this big beer. Strong hints of caramel malt with the hop bite seeming reduced. Bready with a whisky burn.

Aroma; fire in the wooden casks, peaty caramel, tropic tar, whisky notes, lots of knock on wood. Look; off white head, silk ruby body. Taste; peat, tar, wood, oakey dokey malts, tropic scotch, smoked malts - fully warming finish. Feel; full bodied, softly carbonated. Overall; nice sipper, real luxury.

Pours a hazy deep brown from the bottle with thin bubbly off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big smoke notes and booze, peat and oak. Taste follows, smoked malt galore, scotch barrels in the blend, booze kicks after a few sips. Decent, probably should be drank fresher than I got to try it. fugitive (2028) - Athens, GREECE - DEC 9, 2016

Flaska från 2010 (5 månader efter bäst före-datum). Ölbjudning med Lilja och Vignale. Brunmurken vätska med tunnt beiget skum. Rökig och något syrlig doft med rågiga whiskytoner, mycket brunt socker, chark, lite skogiga torvtoner och enbärsavkok. Mellanstor kropp. Väldigt rökig i smaken, inte sådär supersött, toner av kola och brunt socker. Rökighet och whisky i förgrunden. Trevlig, lite udda barley wine.
