Bottle, thanks Craig. Nice mahogany red with off white head. Aroma of sherry, dried fruits. Taste is oxidised in a nice way, sherry and dried fruits. Quite sweet and bitter. Nice rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2014

33 cl bottle
Amber copper, small to no head.
Nose is extremely sweet with caramel and tropical notes. Full body, oily texture. No carbonation. Red fruits, caramel and toffee, marmelade, tropical fruity hints, brown sugar...wow! Suttree (6430) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Lots of bourbon. Very boozy. Lots of oak smell, too. Eventually flavors of coffee and pepper come out. This stuff is really heavy and kind of tedious... Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle originally from BrewDog online. BrewDog rating #200. It pours deep ruby with a rapidly diminishing yellow head. The nose is quite savoury, wood, earth, brown bread, spice, tart fruit skin, date, fig, berry, faint jam. The taste is plum skin, date, red grape, fig, faint fruity tartness, toffee, wood, varnish, resin, alcohol warmth, spice and some medicinal whisky notes with a dry, bitter finish. Full body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Good depth of flavour and well balanced. The fine carbonation lifts it and makes it rather drinkable also. Tasty.

Cellared bottle. Pours murky brown with no head. Aroma is slightly over-ripened stone fruit (very specific, I know). Taste is oxidized a bit, sweet....I taste plum, Sticky sweet and slightly cloying. Kind of a mess but this may have been improperly stored. I will try another to make a better assessment. angel77 (3494) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2013
Botella de 33 cl tranquilamente en casa una noche de junio de 2011. Una auténtica maravilla. Sabores tostados, café y toque ahumado y madera de whisky. Algo de dulzor también. Una maravilla además con 13.8 vol. Para darle más vidilla a la cosa. Una gran pena que no haya más. MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Piccola testa di schiuma giallognola fine e poco persistente, colore marrone scuro, aroma di whisky, di malti tostati e di vino invecchiato, al palato corpo pieno, nota alcolica importante, poca carbonazione, note di toffee, vaniglia, frutta candita, finale amaro e lungo. Non male anche se non è la tipologia di birra che apprezzo di più . Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
