Nice dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Some cherry tartness cuts through the roasted flavours. Whiskey malts and vanilla also make it in there. Dark used motor oil colour with deep tan head of about 1 inch. Shrinks down pretty fast but leacves nice lace. Roast chocolate and coffee dominate with some light acidity. Booze kicks in with nice sweet whiskey flavours - nutmeg, smoke, sweet jerky, vanilla, other spices of some sort. Smooth milky mouthfeel and sharp carbonation lets your swirl this in your mouth a bit. This is surprisingly good. The sweetness, booze, and whiskey flavours makes this pretty enjoyable.
Definitely one of best Scottish Ales I have tried. One of few that I find comparable to GK Willies from Black Ice Brewing. Prominent chocolate malt, hints of vanilla and dry fruit. Whiskey and oak are also present but not overpowering.

Bottle, early 2017. Vanilla, light coconut, red berries, very faint roasted note. Sweet while the body is light, the finish short and the flavour watery. Mediocre. hershiser2 (3831) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Draft taproom. Pours clear brown with a sizeable beige head. Aroma is cherry, wood, alcohol. Flavor is earthy, woody, tart cherry, whiskey. Pretty nice. Mindwarp (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2017
I found this beer in my basement and I think it's time to try. Pours black with a thin off white head. Aroma is up roasted malts a bit of chocolate and a hint of whiskey. Taste of Irish whiskey but it's not overpowering it's still really good, smooth. Overall a lot easier to drink than a lot of American barrel-aged beers but it's retired so I guess I won't drink it again. dmctaster (104) - Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2017

Many thanks to shopkeeper from Abbot's Ale House for this sweet memory.
Bottle. Clear, rubbish black, almost without head. Aroma of caramel, whiskey, raisins, dates, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Whiskey, walnuts, raisins, dates and another dried dark fruits, nougat, alcohol and wild almonds in finish. Medium body, low carbonation, but still pleasantly warming.
Very good, enjoyable.

11.2oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a moderate creamy tan head. Aroma is wood, whiskey residue, faint vanilla, tobacco, and some soap. Taste is caramel, some whiskey, wood, light fudgy chocolate, and a little grain. Lightly bitter finish - with lots of boozy whiskey. Light-medium body. Average carbonation. Watery-oily mouthfeel. beern (238) - Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Pours black and opaque with a one-finger tan head with an aroma of malt, oak and whiskey. Tastes of lively carbonation upfront with a light coffee body and mild oak, whiskey finish. It’s light bodied. putrik (49) - - JUL 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Det är detta öl som bryggeriet når sin höjd på. Riklig whiskykaraktär i fatlagringssmaken
