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.
