Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Molasses, caramel and smoke aromas. Thick with peat and molasses front to back. Warming whiskey finish. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong peat, smoke and toffee notes. The flavor is very similar. I get a lo tot smoke and peat notes as well as some chocolate and toffee. There is a bit of sweetness but what really stands out are the Scotch-aged notes. Fairly boozy. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Tastes like the chocolate made with Laphroaig that you get at Dude Sweet Chocolate in Dallas. Very nice. prawlie (1643) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014

Bottled. Pours dark, deep brown with a medium sized, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses, wood, smoked notes, earthy hops and alcohol. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Medium to full bodied, oily carb. and soft carb. An excellent brew. murran (684) - - DEC 25, 2013

Bottle at Craig’s tasting. Sweet whisky and chocolate nose, chocolate and liquorice, rich. allmyvinyl (10926) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours jet black with a tan head and lacing. Aromas of fruitcake and chocolate. Taste has an earthy quality, and subtle whisky notes. Of the three barrel-aged we had this was by far the best. Beautiful balance between the beer and the whisky. Lovely. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013

The biggest thing about this beer is just how subtle and balanced the beer is. Yes you can taste the whisky but its a passing note, you can taste the beer that is the basis of the bottle. Its sweet its deep its lovely.
