Bottle at home. Opaque black with a thin tan head. Complex aroma of tar, fruit, old tobacco and a hint of wood. Tastes bitter - very bitter. Peaty, woody, fruity and tar-like with a dry finish and a hint of smooth vanilla. Definitely a hint of whisky. Complex, interesting and worth trying. MrOrla (3060) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2017

Tasted on 31.03.15. Intensive aroma of chocolate and liqueur candies. Small head disappearing to ring. Almost completely black colour. Complex taste of dark chocolate and liqueur candies.

Bottle (330 ml) at home. Bottled July 2011, so nearly 6 years old now. Dark brown, almost black, with a small beige head, decent retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is nicely peaty and smokey with roasted malt, berries, caramel and tobacco. Taste is slightly sweet but not cloying with peat aplenty, smoke, berries, caramel, roasted malts, hints of alcohol and tobacco notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Peaty finish. Surprisingly well balanced considering the peat presence which isn’t easy at all. Still in pretty good shape for a 6 years beers, I would never have known it was that old without looking at the bottle. Really flavorful.
