Nose
Heavily peated and smoky. Really phenolic with too much of a TCP character.
Palate
Peat and smoke are immediately obvious, but sweetness and dark chocolate push through.
Finish
Smoky, peaty and dry, with malt and bitter chocolate.
Comment
A dark ruby imperial stout aged in Islay whisky casks. Once you get over the rather uninviting aroma, the taste is notably sweet and the beer becomes very suppable. You really do have to like peat, though, to get anything out of this beer.

Nose
Overpoweringly phenolic
Palate
Everything you'd expect from an Islay whisky mixed with the dry roasted notes of an Imperial stout.
Finish
No claims to subtlety: Imperial stout + Islay!
Comment
Pitch black. Smoke, roast and dryness, not for the faint hearted.
