Rosebeerlover (11) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
500 cc bottle, chilled. Clear dark brown and copper color with off white head and lacing. Mild malty aroma. Taste is mildly sweet, more so in the finish. Taste of malts, some caramel & nuts, but no bitterness or bite. Very drinkable, excellent alone or with most pub food. Went well with roasted pork. Excellent Scottish ale.

minihame2 (372) - 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 (2223) - 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.

zarguon (11) - FINLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Cool amber-colour appearance. Aroma of chocolate, sweet malts. Taste is following the aroma well having chocolate, caramel, lots of malts, some distinct taste I cant quite characterize. Full body. Makes you want more! My first beer of this style (scottish ale) and requiring to try more.

phfyysik (441) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2016
Pours dark clear red with mild foam. Aroma is honey, caramel, toffee, sugar. Taste is quite same, some smoky, oak and malts attached. Low carbonisation, after is very oily and burned caramel. Good different beer!

God fylde og en hvis sødme, der må være brugt godt med malt i denne øl. Dn er brygget på tre forskellige slags humle og tre forskellige slags malt. Hvis man kan lide en øl med god fyldig mild smag uden for meget humle, er den her et godt valg.
