2.3/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dark brown color with some ruby clarity through the body. Lighter brown is noted along the edges. A thin khaki head appears care of a violent pour that produces a scant amount of large bubbles. Very minor spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The aroma of this brew is like moss. A little smokey like cured meat mixed with burnt rubber and plastic. Completely appalling aroma when mixed with the solvent touch of alcohol. This brew smells like the worst attributes of scotch but exaggerated.

The taste is moss, mildew, smoke, dirt and earthy. Stale coffee and burning char-like alcohol. Lightly fusel, dry roasted bitter chocolate and more coffee. This beer turned my stomach which is sad because I enjoy both scotch and smoked beer. This was not a good combination.

It is medium bodied with a light feel of low carbonation. Very solvent and just not that good. I would not drink this again. The burnt rubber and plastic-like mildew and smoke formed a very unpleasant experience. Hands down one of the worst barrel aged beers I have sampled. The group of us who sat down to enjoy all of the barrel aged black hole offerings threw in the towel and couldn't finish our pours of this.

1.45/5  rDev -48%
look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Based on the reviews I did this to punish myself! Served from bottle into a New Jersey Devils shaker. Poured pitch black with a minimal tan head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, peat, smoke, sweet alcohol, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, peat, smoke, earth, mothballs, and gross. It had a medium feel on the palate with no carbonation. Overall this beer sucked. The peat in this thing was just WAY too overpowering to the point where it made me almost projectile vomit after taking the first sip. Just way too strong and completely destroyed the brew for me. I don't suggest drinking this unless you really hate your palate. Trust me on this one.

A - Dark brown-black with a finger of frothy chocolate colored head. Fades at a normal pace.

S - Dark chocolate and dark caramel malts, oak, whiskey, peat, smoke, roasted coffee, molasses, black licorice, vanilla, some dark fruit, and some booze.

T - Dark chocolate and sweet dark caramel malts, peat, smoke, oak, whiskey, roasted coffee, black licorice, molasses, some vanilla and dark fruit, some citrus and pine hops and a bit of bitterness, and some booze.
