3.63/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- really really dark brown with thin white head that has pretty long retention, no carbonation to be seen,
Smell- slight peat, loads of malt, raisins, brown sugar and molasses, chocolate, very malty nose
Taste- a lot of the sweet malts up front with a bit of a spicy drying finish, not quite as much peat on the flavor as i remember a few years ago, kind of drowned out a bit, its not super complex but has nice balance
Mouthfeel- medium to heavy in body, very drying in texture on the finish, some warmth from alcohol
Drinkability/overall- I have to say this beer feel short a bit from the last time that I had tried it where i felt the peat and scotch characteristics were far more pronounced, it has decent balance and though pretty drinkable you can definitely notice the alcohol, while this beer wasnt bad it fell way short of my last tasting and on this tasting just simply an okay beer
