330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£7.99):
Black with a thin, bubbly head on top that is half a centimetre tall and a medium tan in colour. Retention is pretty good too.

Strong chocolate aroma with whisky throughout. There is a strong alcohol/grain presence with rich cocoa and a touch of peat. Boozy with dark fruits making an appearance with vanilla right at the end.

Strong, alcohol laced flavour that has a lot of whisky and grain coming through alongside some dark fruits such as plum. There is a strong, toasted malt taste that precedes an earthy taste that is offset with some prunes, dates and figs among others.

Full-bodied with a huge alcohol content as promised and has fairly lively carbonation levels considering this. There is a slight alcohol burn but smooth for the most part.

A true big beer, and one that packs a punch, There is a lot of whisky and grain throughout as expected but the dark fruits that feature throughout make it an enjoyable beer, although this is probably still a one-off for me

Poured into snifter; jet black like engine oil with a moderate brown fluffy head that fades quickly into some chunky foam and very fine lacing around the edges.
Smells very interesting...like a barleywine combined with a stout. Dark fruit dominates, with booze, coffee, chocolate, bourbon, scotch, and oak all intermingled.
Taste...damn. It overtakes your whole mouth with slick, tastefully boozy dark fruit and bourbon. Then dark bready malt mingles with coffee and chocolate and oak, slithering down the throat with sticky sweetness.
Mouthfeel is slick and thick, with a good amount of carbonation, enough to keep the body from being too cloying.
Overall, this is an awesome stout. It's really taking barrel-aging to its extreme...stout aged in barrels that were used for bourbon and then scotch. But the result is awesome.

A: Black with no light coming through. Pours a 1.5 finger head that slowly recedes. The lacing is fairly good.
S: Big peat smoke of a whisky followed with alot of vanilla some dark chocolate and coffee.
T: Some sweetness upfront followed by some sherry, dark fruits and some vanilla from the barrels.
M: Mouthfeel was lighter than I was expecting. It was fairly smooth though considering the ABV.
O: A very interesting beer that I am happy I tried. I bought another to see if it mellows with age.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a small dark brown foamy head. Aroma of luscious sweet roasted malt notes with light sweet liquor notes. Taste is sweeter then I had expected with some sweet roasted malt notes, light chocolate notes with some light scotch notes at the end which rounds off the corner. Body is quite full with oily like texture with light carbonation and no real apparent alcohol notes. Barrel-aging is not has apparent has I had expected but very good nonetheless.
