stevendoel (27) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2014
A very slight coffee aroma with a rich deep dark color that is to be expected from a wee heavy. Starts dry and has a slightly bitter, coffee finish. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

VDuquerroux (227) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle, 500mL. Home. A dark clear red mahogany beer with a large off-white foam. Good persistence. Roasty smoky aroma, herbs, floral, caramel. Medium sugary sweet then warming. Bitterness starts light at first sip, then medium refreshing. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, long sugary sweet with herbal notes. Overall, I really enjoyed this mahogany scotch ale. Good balance.

Ezek a mélyvörös skót ale-ek. Le lehet tőlük részegedni, az biztos :) Gitáros lévén nem vetem meg a jó sört, ennél ittam már finomabbat, de jól csúszott minden szám közti szünetben...

Bottle from B&M, Rochdale. Bronze-red, no head, with a noticeable strength but enough sweetness throughout to enjoy.

BAMF (78) - Albion, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Aroma is caramel dominant with some earth and sweet malt tones. Upon first Pour there was a lot of stunk type aromas at dissipated. Appearance is brown deep ruby highlights with a good amount of tan off white head that quickly dissipates. Flavor is Carmel dominant with hints of skunk and earth. It has malty and nutty with slightly sweet flavors and some alcohol showing through. Medium mouth feel with moderate carbonation and some alcoholic lending to a slightly dry finish. Overall the clear bottle and shelf storage is lent to some skunk flavors. The beer is dominated by a silky smooth caramel flavor and aroma with alcohol and sweetness.
