Re-visiting this as an aged bottle

Lighter color, good head
Smell is sweet malt, chocolate and whiskey with a hint of smoke
More of the same on the palate
Feel is thinning out - not holding up

Overall a tasty beer, but too expensive, and should be aging better than this. Smoke is very nice, but the rest of the beer is turning into booze syrup..

Poured an opaque chocolate brown in a snifter.

Aroma is unique for an Imperial stout: less chocolate- lots of smoke, some leather.
Reminds me of Engine Oil and Ola Dubh from Harviestoun.

The mouth feel is mild- but the alcoholic finish gets quite pronounced with warming.
I can feel the bitterness and alcohol on the back of my tongue with every sip.

Different approach to taste: strong smoke, some leather. This is definitely a Scottish brew.
Americans don't brew beer like this. The beer finishes great: a concentrated alcohol finish
that almost overpowers the beer with warming.

Stylistically, this beer stands out. The usual imperial stout, the gold standard being BCBS, has rich chocolate and coffee. This is totally different- smoke and and a concentrated
smoky alcohol finish. Now I have a to find another bottle to cellar. Good by '22.

I really enjoyed this. The abv made me a little skeptical of the potential heat. Surprisingly smooth for such a biggy. Nice oak presence.
