cervmagpt (594) - PORTUGAL - MAY 30, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 17C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant malt aroma with medium-high notes of caramel and a slight touch of diacetyl with a butterscotch character. APPEARANCE: dark ambar color with ruby body against light. moderate and moussy tanned head with medium-low retention. TASTE: rich malty flavor with a strong caramel presence and a slight roasted malt note with a smoked character. low bitterness with a sweet palate but with a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium body with a very faint alcohol presence. OVERALL: a nice and tradicional Wee Heavy with a less body.

Dark mahogany and full-bodied. Sweet malty aroma with notes of dried fruit and alcohol. Sweet and lightly bitter taste, with a fruity and spicy flavour. Overall, a very good scotch ale. Good aroma and great taste.

minihame2 (379) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Dark, burgundy coloured body with some tan lacing. Promising aroma, malts, cherries, grapes with a bit of syrupy sweetness. Intense taste, malty, some yeast, a bit sour. Slick and somewhat tingly mouthfeel, slight carbonation. Big beer with very rich overall feel to it.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Espuma beige que se disipa, color oscuro y rojizo al transluz, se aprecia el brotar constante de burbujas, aroma suave pero rico en nariz con matices dulces, sabor suave con matices tostados y notas dulces con regusto agradable

DeanF (2227) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Nice big foamy head and dark gold body, swampwater aroma of no attraction to speak of. Flavour is murky malts with hints of old pennies, cabbage, cardboard. A wacky taste that does nothing for me.

Dark amber, nice white head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, fruits, floral. Taste is sweet, with caramel, grain and some spices, low but long lasting bitterness.
