Very good, but not overly outstanding. Probably not worth the price tag. profile - January 24, 2015
Very good, little too expensive compared with other equally good beers here.

Roasted, molasses aroma. A bit smokey/ashy. Just an ashy, roasted flavor without much else going on.

Raw bacon and ripe cherries and mirin on the nose. Smoke, raw honey and espresso. Molasses and bitter almonds on the palate. Long bitter finish. Good.

Excellent old ale aged in highland park barrels. Almost like a lean porter, traditional scotch notes come through but the peat doesn't dominate. Had at PP 4/27/13.

Really thin porter in a good way with that whiskey cask way that makes it a little sweet. Definitely will try more from this brewer!
