4.09/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a dark brown with a small off-white head, looks almost flat at first, solid head retention though.

S: Strong scent, get a lot of overt whiskey at first, then comes iodine, sea air, cherry, prune, and definitely vanilla bean, with a hint of ethanol.

T: Scotch and a alcohol bit hit, then the overall flavour mellows out. Lots of dark chocolate, molasses, raisin, and vanilla coke.

M: Quite light than I would expect with a 10% beer, perhaps this is because of the aging, I don't know. Smooth and mellow.

D: Very easy to drink for such a big beer. Very expensive, but I liked the concept, glad I bought it.

Picked this one up from Bill as an extra in our most recent trade. I had been wanting to get these, but had yet to see them show up locally. Needless to say I was very happy when he included one to let me see if I needed to pursue it further. Served in an oversized wine glass, this was consumed at cellar temp on 08/10/2008.

Poured a deep, dark black, though utterly motionless with only the slightest bit of wispy brown lace on the top. That faded after a few brief moments and all that was left in its wake was a bare, blackened top.

The aroma was full of whiskey and vanilla smells. Lots of nice sweet touches here, maybe even some light butterscotch on the nose. Hints of burnt coffee and an almost peat like smell were dancing around in the foreground. The flavor was more f the same. Very nice, toasty, with a he malt bill on this one. Started smooth and dark, with an oak like flavor that washed over the tongue with hints of vanilla and molasses, fleeting though with some long after taste of roasted malts and peat, a touch of sweet whiskey flavor and the drying touch that was highlighted by almost a bitter bakers chocolate. Smooth Mouthfeel, though not as thick as I would have liked, but still not bad at all. Easily drinkable as the 10% was nowhere to be found on this one.

Overall not bad. Jury is still out on the 12 dollar price tag, but this was definitely a solid beer. The aging was not overdone at all, and an easy one for being so big. Will have to come back to this one.

So I decided to take a flyer on this brew. I'm intrigued by the scotch barrel conditioning. Noted as aged in a former 1970 Glen Grant cask and best by 12/12/09.

A - rich black color with a nice dark tan head

S - roasted malts, oak, vanilla and light peat scotch.

T - roasty dark malts, light notes of oak and scotch but it is dominated by the roasty effect

M - medium / medium full bodied, smoothly carbonated, nice warming effect.

D - came across as a coffee RIS rather than having spent time in a scotch barrel.

A nice brew which I hope the roast factor will mellow with time. Price of entry on this was $12.94 for a 11.2 oz bottle so while it's neat to try it's rather expensive.
