Inky black with a very small dark tan head. Fair head retention.

Roasty aroma with a big oak note. Lots of caramel. Charred wood and a little touch soy sauce. Wonderfully intense.

Lovely big malt flavour. Lots of dark, dried fruit as well. The oak and roast work well together. Nice burnt caramel.

Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Silky.

A nice beer. The subtle Arran malt works well with the stout complementing the flavours rather than destroying them.

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.

Pours black with a thin, dark head. Smell is molasses, brown sugar and alcohol. The taste is largely chocolate, with a healthy helping of boozy flavor. The feel is surprisingly light with light carbonation. Overall this is excellent, sweet without being cloying, boozy without being too much, and it all holds together very well.

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.

Review from notes

Pours a dark oily black with an off white head. The aroma is full of malt whiskey, char and vanilla. You can smell the alcohol. The taste is well balanced between big malts, charred barrel, bourbon, vanilla and charcoal. Dark fruits poke through a bit as well. Drinks like a sipper, fills you up like a supper
