Cask at Rattle’n’Hum. The aroma has coconut, vanilla, bourbon. Feels overloaded with scents but is almost too much. Sweet, tar flavors are present, with some prune. A bit of vanilla as well, but comes across fairly mild in flavor for its strength, especially considering the kick in the face aroma. Not very exciting. Fairly typical BBA stout (or Old Ale, if you will, but it’s awfully close to a ton of American BBA stouts). Pinball (12264) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009

Thanks turd for sharing. Pousr a dark brown with copper edges and a one finger head of light tan. Nose is peaty and smoky, Scotch there for sure, mild chocolate and day old coffee. Flavor is a tad thin, Scotch for sure, peaty and meaty, old chocolate and coffee. Palate is a tad thin. hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle… Pours black with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The bouquet provides dark chocolate, charred-smoky wood and Scotch whiskey - no doubt this was aged in a spicy Highland Park barrel. Nearly full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and mildly chocolaty; bittersweet and roasty, but not a lot of whiskey flavor. Crisp, burnt, bittersweet finish.

Bottle. Dark brown, light brown head. Peat, scotch, wood, hint of chocolate, vanilla and smoke. Surprisingly thin, peaty, but not too balanced - if you like scotch you’ll like this, otherwise probably not. Slightly bitter, woody, decent dry finish with a nice peat after taste.

Very complex aromas with a lot of whisky notes. It’s very vinous with aromas of wood and dried fruit. The taste feels a bit flat here as well but the vinous feeling I get is really nice.
Bottle at home.
Black coloured with a medium sized beige head.
Fruity aroma of caramel, dark chocolate and whisky with notes of alcohol.
Fruity and light roasted flavour of caramel, whisky and alcohol.
Roasted and warming alcoholic finish of whisky.
The whisky is too dominating. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2010
Aroma is roast coffee and rich malt, jet black, tiny cappuccino head. Rich malt, coffee, scotch notes. Medium bodied, very well balanced, alcohol is subdued very smooth drinking. Great!
