I don't see a date on this but it does list it as a 2011 collaboration.
A: Pours a dark brown with red highlights. Fluffy and airy tan head. Head fizzes out somewhat quickly. Decent retention and some wide swatches of lacing.
S: Mellow aroma, probably due to the age. Mild smoke and peat. Some malty sweetness, caramel I believe?
T: Sweeter than the aroma betrays. Caramel with hints of molasses. Decent peat up front. Not very smoky, just hints of it here and there. Plenty of peat, however.
M: Medium bodied, smooth and silky.
O: Age has apparently mellowed and smoothed this one out. Well-integrated flavors lend to a very drinkable scotch ale. Pretty simple in general and enjoyable.

Poured in to snifter.
A - Poured medium brown, settled a murky dark brown with a thin layer of light brown head.
S - Smoke, peat, dark caramel, toffee, bread and a light molasses presence.
T - Bready sweetness up front with caramel, toffee and raisins that are well integrated with a peat/scotch presence and a light oakiness from the barrels. Some warming alcohol.
M - Medium body, almost full body at times. Very light carbonation.

Pours a cloudy brown amber with a small short lived beige head. Aroma and Taste of sweet dark caramel malt, raisins, a bit of dry dark fruit figs, plums with some yeast, brown sugar, mild bitterness and sweet alcohol esters. Palate is medium to full body, smooth and a sweet sticky mouth feel. Finishes with sweet caramel malt, raisins, dark fruit, plums, sweet sour flavor, yeast, ending is mildly bitter with a dry alcohol. Lingering notes of caramel and raisin sweetness. Overall I found this to be a very well made and tasty brew.
