Bottle: Thanks Hackobock: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Black beer with a brown head.
Aromas of perfume, cognac, roast, wood, bay leaf, earthy, dark fruity, hints of peat and smoke...
Flavours of berries, some red fruit, roast, whiskey, earthy, wood, cognac, liquor, hint of lacto, coal, etc...
Aftertaste is bitter, roast, wood, whiskey, cognac...
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, close to full bodied.
Strange, one time strong cognac other time you taste red and dark fruit, other time more earthy whiskey, but nonetheless a good beer.

bottle @ home. Aged 18 months. Pours a pitch black liquid with a long lasting, thick and creamy, brown colored head. Sweet and complex aroma with notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, dill(!), wood, dark bread, peat and some smoke, licorice and slightly vinous dates. Smooth yet sharply roasted taste with a full body. Taste of dark chocolate, vanilla, wood, peat, licorice, dark bread, toffee, spices. Dry, bitter finish with peat, some lactose, coffee and bitter chocolate lingering. Really good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 ounce bottle, label says 10.6% ABV, no dating on the bottle or label that I notice. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells like peat, Scotch whisky, roasted malt, milk chocolate, smoke and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some sweet spiciness and an iodine/mineral flavor. Sweet, smoky and minerally tasting, I really like this! Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. Well, I liked this a lot. I’d buy this again the next time I see it, and I really think there need to be more Scotch whisky/oak barrel aged beers. To Øl did a great job with this one! $9.79 a bottle.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a slight, transient tan head. Aroma is very alcohol, and that heads the rest - which might be chocolate and dark malt. Med + body. Flavor is smoky scotch whiskey with alcohol and chocolate hints. Coffee comes with time. Mostly this is about scotch. Nice drink.
