2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle and served in Bells tulip: Pours a ruddy pale brown with a lovely frothy off-white head which left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma at first hit me with hairspray and band-aid but those esters quickly vamoosed leaving heavy wood and caramel vapours in the wake. Lemony, plum and raisin fruity notes along with a dash of peat and char. Damn it, those same medicinal and chemical notes I found at first on the nose are still hanging around the palate. This time they are not going anywhere. The taste is like a cheap scotch with a blend of a strong ale. Almost no bitterness left and that is really needed. Whatever Nelson Sauvin hops were here have long vacated the premises. That same band-aid character is even found on the mouth feel, harsh and medicinal. This beer is an utter failure on so many levels, big brew for the sake of being big. Much like Brew Dog Smokehead Stout you can go too far with the Scotch overtone... I dislike this is an understatement.
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 (2205) - 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. Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2017

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 (2005) - 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. thomat (3860) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2016
