3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Jaaaaarspaaaaaggggg in sunny cali for this baby. Bottle less than a year old. Have another that I will age for at least one more year before retrying. Pours a dark nut brown with thin tan head that dissipates quickly to an ever so small ring around the glass, no lacing. Aroma of toasted to slightly roasted malts, alcohol, whiskey, raisins, and chocolate. Flavor matches well, alcohol dominates and a bit more bitterness than expected. Mouthfeel is thin, slick, and surprisingly lively in carbonation. Finishes dry, bitter, lots of chocolate, and a bit metallic. Overall very nice, but might do better with some age.

On tap at Alesmith brewpub. Dark copper brown with a ring of head. Sweet caramel aroma. Heavy sweet booze with lots of sweet bite! Hoo! This one aint light. Im not a big scotch ale wee heavy guy. Similar to Old Chub its strong, heavy and sweet. Really nice just not my style. Too bold and boozy for me.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 75cl bottle at home, bottled 02/20/2014. Very dark brown colour, light brown head. Rich dried fruits like figs and raisins in the nose, bitter dark chocolate edge too: taste is likewise, caramel/toffee sweet, spicy, liquorice, maybe a bit smokey, lingers beautifully fruity and sweet but can’t really appreciate the bitterness. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation.
