Big ol' thanks to Craig for the trade. This has been in our cellar since 2012 (it's 2014) and who knows how long he had it before trading.

Sampled some Arran scotch whisky beforehand to get familiar with the taste.

Color is mostly black, a little brown.

Plenty of head, still smells good. Stout, carmel, kinda sweet. Doesn't smell at all like the whiskey.

Taste matches the smell. A little flat, perhaps, smoky, acidic, maybe a little gingerbread on the finish.

Later sips. Acidity not so shocking on subsequent sips. The whisky has completely disappeared, though. Maybe the age has converted the whisky into smoky malt. Very malt heavy.

Pours pitch black with a tan coloured head which quickly disappears.

The smell is very sweet whisky and dark malts.

The taste is very heavy on the whisky, sweet and malty. The finish has some bitter chocolate.

The mouthfeel is smooth and light for the style. The carbonation is low.

Overall a very whisky forward sweet beer. I enjoyed it but one is definitely enough.
