Pours a very dark, creamy beer, with very little foam that disappears almost instantly. Smells of cocoa and dark chocolate. Sweet taste of chocolate and a slight hint of alcohol.

A little bit thin, but the base gives just enough structure to the massive Scotch notes that pour through this. Burns your eyes a bit when breathing into a snifter, but I really loved how the alcohol dominated without being out of control. Could enjoy a bigger pour of this for a long time.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours oil black with a very small beige head, reduced to a tiny sticky lace.
Strong smell of caramel, dry dark fruit, vanilla and dark spices. Sweet and boozy, plus a low soy sauce from the malts.
Sweet molasses and dark chocolate in the front, some juicy figs and dates in the back, raisin, low berries. Dark roasted malts, but very faintly reminding of coffee (which i like). A spicy feel later on, prickly, with pepper and ginger, but also some dark spices, with cinnamon, licorice. Vanilla and oak obviously from the maturing, perfect. American hops in the finish not totally overpowered by the roast or the alcohol, so the finish is a bit dry, mildly bitter, nice and sweet (not syrupy or disturbing).
Mouthfeel is smooth with just enough carbonation to keep the spicy feel out there. Booze gets a bit strong as it warms, with a clear nice malty whisky taste. Aftertaste of sweet caramel, a bit hoppy, and faint charcoal.
Awesome beer, can't find a single bad thing to say about it. Maybe a bit too alcoholic towards the finish, but i personally like that, if it's rich and tasty too.
