ASPETTO: marrone mogano scuro, schiuma marroncina, poco abbondante, abbastanza fine e non molto persistente. AROMA: si percepisce soprattutto del marzapane, liquoroso, caramello e tostato. Aroma intenso e avvolgente. GUSTO: si ripresentano i sentori percepiti al naso, con aggiunta di un buon maltato e della liquirizia. Corpo strutturato, carbonizzazione bassa. CONCLUSIONE: grandissima birra, da meditazione. Molto saporita, dal gusto pieno e avvolgente. I suoi 16 anni di invecchiamento si sentono tutti. edgallow (4165) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2012

Bottle No: 10504, Bottling Date: Feb 2012. Znakomite czarne piwo, jak oleisty olej nieprzezroczyste z niewielka brazowa piana. Przypominalo w zapachu porto, a dalej trufle gozka czekolada. W smaku lekka nutea wedzona i drewniany posmak whisky, trufle i kakao, rodzynki i chyba jeszcze troche tortu czekoladowego. Po przelknieciu troche pozostaje posmaku alkoholowego w gardle oraz cieplo pochodzace z whisky. Palonosc portera na przyzwoitym poziomie. Ladna buteleczka zdobiona i numerowana, gdyby jeszcze ta pianka sie trzymala dluzej to bylby ideal. Goraco polecam skosztowanie innych rocznikow, oczywiscie chodzi mi o beczki po Higland Park Single Malt. dogbomb (1216) - ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with a dark tan scum on top. Nose is vanilla and cedarwood. A little whisky. Taste is woody, burnt, toffee, a touch of whisky, cream, chocolate. Incredibly rich.Raisins and roasted fruit. There’s bags of flavour in this. Nice and sweet, without being sicky. A little slick in the mouth, but not uncomfortable. DELICIOUS!

Aroma not as intense as the 12. Immediately thicker than the 12, this is the thickest of the bunch. Sweet and strong, it has a solid consistency from start to finish. Excellent. yankeefan21 (135) - New York, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Bottle: Pours an opaque black with a thick tightly laced beige head. Sweet malty smell. This is a delicious perfectly balanced beer with exactly the right weight on the tongue. The flavors start with dark chocolate and some caramel before a bit of the smokey wood cask flavor shines through in the finish. I am a Highland Park Scotch drinker so this seemed like a deal I couldn’t pass up. The price is quite steep [$10 for 11oz.] but in this case, you really do get what you pay for and that is a magnificent beer with a complex flavor profile! kiwirevo (11) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 27, 2012
If you are reading this review and not drinking this beer right now what are you doing! This beer is a bit bizarre but fantastic. An insanely complex blend of coffee, toffee malt flavours with citrus sour flavours. (sounds bad but it’s not) BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Holy crap. This is fantastic. Pours very dark. Woody and vanilla up front. Medium to full bodied. Very nice beer. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2008 Dark brown, oily, small dark tan head. Reminds of Goose Island BCS with a little larger head. Strong but classy nose of whisky, chocolate, and wood depths. Taste is delicious: chocolate, alcohol, malt, dry wood, and a nice smoky peat touch. Medium bodied, super rich, long in peat, and ultra smooth, this is one hell of a beer for whisky heads, stout heads, dessert-beer heads, fireside-winter-beer heads...
