Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, mildly sweet and with touches of malt cream and dark chocolate. Tangy dark fruits,. Fair bit of peat, not overwhelming but for a non peat fan - too much. Light semi dry finish. Peaty linger.
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with brown head. Nose is roast, whisky, peat, oak, vanilla, light coffee. Taste is whisky, bitterish roast, peat, ash. Whisky is quite dominant and the beer doesn’t quite have enough body for it. Good anyway. Mr_Pink_152 (6176) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016

330ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Small tan head, good lacing. Dark black body. Nose is all peaty whisky, some coffee and charcoal lurking underneath. Flavour is dominated by whisky as well, some coffee, dark berries on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation. Too much whisky influence.

Bottle from the Trembling Madness in York. Pours mahogany with a cream head. Smokey peat whiskey aroma. The taste has light spice and chocolate bfore lots of smokey peat flavour. Nice but the whisky character overwhelms the beer too much for me. minutemat (6602) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2015
Keg @ Craven Arms, Birmingham. Pours very dark brown, thin tan head. Vibrant whisky aroma. Good peat and smoke elements blending with roasted malts. Some bitter espresso and ash. Definitely a big speyside influence with this one. greenmanalishi (578) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015

With a nose of deep roast and speyside whisky this silky looking breakfast stout has reasonable concentration and some sticky sap. But it lacks the power structure and concentration to balance the barrel. teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 31, 2015
33cl bottle from BottleDog, London. It pours a dark brown color with minimal brown head. Aroma is lightly sweet and closes dry. Notes f cocoa, dry wood., ashes and minerals. Taste had more light caramel and chocolate sweetness upfront, then turns into more dry ashy woody notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok
