Draft. Coarse and grainy bran muffin and toaster crumb malt with some earthy dirtiness and a simple black plum ester profile to go with the chocolate syrup notes. Sweet taste, low bitterness, low acid, smooth and creamy body, soft carbonation. Nice enough in the mouth but the nose has some problems for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours hazy light brown with a little brownish white head. Aroma has sweetish maltiness, some roasty and plenty of smoky notes and also some dark fruitiness - smokiness is surprising. Taste is very malty and smooth with a medium to full bodied palate. Smokiness is very much present but not overpowering; the taste also has bread and some sweetish fudge in it. This is actually quite nice to drink, I haven’t detected smoky notes from other scotch ales I’ve had but it suits this ale well. The prize in Alko is disappointingly high, however, even by their standards.
