29.12.2016, 0,33l bottle (#84/351) shared with friends @ home:AshtonMcCobb (6609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2016
Small slightly bubbly-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is mild and slightly dry mineraly, weeds, oak, minerals, bark, alcohol, burnt grain, paper, dark malts. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish fruity, dark sugar, minerals, raisins, oak, alcohol, grass, leather, peat, caramel, prunes. Medium bitterness, slightly dry sour-ish fruity mouthfeel (even though it’s almost kind of watery compared to the Highland edition). Nice.

Pours black with little light brown head.
Aroma coffee, alcohol, whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, spice.

Amazing beer, smooth compared to the Highland, also more sweets and less whiskey.

A great old beer. Big imperial stout, pours chocolate black with no head. Chocolate, vanilla, and berries. I feel honored that I had this one. This is a special beer, that sadly, will not be tasted again. (July 2012) BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2012
