Bottle from BrewDog brewery. Pours a reddish brown with slight yellow head which slowly fades. Big aromas of caramel malts, glazed cherry, prunes and plum with a slight bubblegum tinge. Very sweet flavours with a strong almost overpowering liquorice that almost hides the dates and caramel. A sherry style finish. Was expecting more whisky hints in this. Hides the % pretty well.

Narkee (15) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours dark amber with very little head. Honey, raisins, bubblegum, smoke and alcohol aroma. Palate is syrupy and thick. Taste is very complex with raisins and sweet caramel body throughout. Boozy from start to finish but in a good way. SinH4 (4759) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
beautiful dark amber color with hardly any head. Deep smell of sweetness and hops, dark fruits, very complex. Complex sweetness on the tongue (very sweet), probably due to the cask influence. Barleywine feeling in the palate. Alcohol is very noticeable from start to finish. No bitterness (probably also due to the cask influence). Great for a special occasion. Cuso (8685) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from Bottle park, Bratislava. Dark amber color with minimal white head. Aroma of whiskey, malt, fruits, caramel. Very sweet taste with caramel, malt, dried fruits, candied orange zest, vanilla, oak, alcohol - whiskey. Full bodied beer. Sweet strong alcoholic finish. Very tasty sipper, I liked it a lot. Perfect birthday drink. haukur (1957) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 16, 2014
Almost whisky looking, golden brown, almost no head. There is a fantastic whiff of vanilla, cocoa, whisky, some slight toffee, wet cardboard. Taste is medium to heavy sweet but very well balanced with oak, burn and a slight hop bite. Full bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation. Long hot finish.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Bottle, OP. Dark ruby body with low head. Aroma is complex at first sniff, has a lot of barrel wood, light ash, dark fruits, evident alcohol too, berries, ripped cherries, wood is pretty strong in there, but very complex, whiskey sweet background, very light smoke ending, prunes, light vanilla touch. Taste has high barrel sweetness, bitterness is long lasting but low, dark fruity sweetness. Body is full, oily texture, medium to low carbonation. Extremely complex, I just love barrel aged beers. #cellar
