Opened by bottle from last Xmas and had it cellared for the year. Everything about it is phenomenal. A little boozy on the taste but well worth the 1 year wait!

Thanks to jconrick1 for this lovely surprise.

Bottle

Pours a rich, near mahogany. 2 fingers of frothy malt o'meal colored head in my Bruery tulip.

Nose is sublime. No peatiness that I assumed would be present, instead I have a rich, slightly burnt sugar with hints of cocoa that are sweet with a tease of bitter.

Taste is graceful. Starts with the charred sugar in the fore, then rounds out into a meld of chocolate, brown sugar, dried fruit (maybe date, maybe raisin). This is where I start to hear bagpipes and taste the fog lifting from the Loch. Just kidding. Love this drink!

Mouthfeel is fine, if I'd change anything this would be it. It could have a hint more heft. But not complaining at all.

Finish is more of the meld carried mostly by a gentle blend of malt, chocolate, date, and a hint of warmth.

Overall: WANT AGAIN.

Appearance - The beer poured a murky brown color with a modest mocha head.

Smell - The malts are most notable in the aroma with a certain measure of sweetness.

Taste - On the initial taste, I detect vanilla and raisins. Chewy malts follow, matching the sweetness before turning dark. On the aftertaste, I sense the malts turning chocolatey in nature. Seemingly like dark chocolate, the aftertaste seems a little dry.

Mouthfeel - This is a sipper, though I would like it to be slightly thicker. It is great with griller meats.

Overall - Amid the greatest of Pipeworks, this gem is often forgotten.
