Pitch black color. Thin dark brown head. The peated malt really shines and works well with the French oak with just a touch of sherry notes, all of this on top of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and licorice. Pretty damn complex nose that melds well. Oh and I forgot to mention that sweet honey pops up as well. WOW. The mouth shows low carbonation, slightly sour, smooth, lighter body than excepted, tons of peat, sherry, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Really well integrated and put together. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of honey, raisins, dark fruit. Taste is honey balanced with boozy roastiness. Rich, chocolate. Nutty, oaky. Bit of coconut. Damn good.

The_Osprey (9999) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
500ml bottle, nearly 2 years old, consumed whilst contemplating my hatred of Southern Hemisphere rugby teams. Black, small tan head, light lacing. Aroma is tangy manuka honey, slightly metallic. Body is medium, smooth, slightly foamy. Taste is malty, touch of coffee, some vanilla and chocolate. Lovely taste - very good beer. Though I have to say a) it doesn’t have the body of an imperial stout and b) given all the treatment this has been given (champagne yeast, 2 honey additions, 3 barrel treatments, 3 hops, bottle conditioning), this should be a lot more complex and getting a score nearer the elusive 5.0. Still, it’s farking good. Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
