750ml bottle

Very peaty, touch of smoke and ash, tobacco, and a return of the peaty whiskey on the finish. Not as thick as i expected, but smooth none-the-less and really shines in hiding the abv in the taste.

Bonus points in feel for abv masking, down points for a lack of major coffee presence. Good beer though.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Pitch black with a small khaki head. Peaty scotch, but it's not that intense. Molasses and dark chocolate. Boozy with a touch of soy sauce. Scotch dominates the flavor. Peaty whiskey. Then intense bitter and heavy roasted malt. Bitter chocolate. Heavy body and boozy. First taste is intense, but it's outrageously good.
