Dark as night this porter is with a nice deep mahogany look when held up to the light. Initial nose detected was of smoked chocolate. Tasted of rich mocha with notes of tobacco and toast not much of an aftertaste on this fairly big beer so that's the one thing that left me wanting. The feel was quite silky and pleasant.

I wanted to love this - so I bought two. It is technically a smoked porter aged in Islay scotch barrels. Opened one and sitting on the other for a few more months. The look and nose of this is nice. Its rich black with a slight opacity. The nose is all smoky scotch with light undertones of roasted malts. The taste was VERY heavy on the smoky scotch but the beer was very light, almost no body, and not a lot of flavors under (or that show under) the scotchyness. I wanted to love it in part because I love the experimentation that goes on at Big Alice. Also, because of the hefty price for a 375 ml. But there was no depth. Hopefully with a bit more time in the bottle the beer matures and the smoke and scotch subside a bit.
