3.21/5  rDev n/a
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pitch black body with an almost none existent head, there are just a few large tan bubbles and that's it. The carbonation is minimal.

Aroma: Lots of smokey roasted malts, peaty whisky aromas, strong espresso and milky chocolate - really good nose.

Taste: The taste is quite mild, the roasted malts from the nose are still there, along with some hints of coffee but that is about it.

Mouthfeel: The feel is quite watery and thin, which is a shame. There is no hint of carbonation in the mouth and it has a slightly clingy feel.

Drinkability: Nothing special I'm afraid. The smell is great but that is all that stands out. Will probably try again but definitely on cask next time.
