DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Fine pint of malty, sedimented brown elixir. Hops add subtle grassy fragance. Smells and aromas of molasses, raisins, prunes, iron, vanilla, caramel. Excellent example of a Scottish ale. Very well balanced and smooth. Finish is very smooth mildly sweet and clean.

leghorn99 (89) - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 18, 2015
Il colore è un rosso scuro molto intenso, dall’ottima limpidezza; la schiuma è corta e di colore beige chiaro. Aroma complesso e molto equilibrato; è dolce e fumoso, torba e frutti scuri, soprattutto ciliegie, spiccano note di malto tostato e caramello. Il gusto segue l’aroma, fumo di torba, ciliegie e caramello scuro; note leggere di liquore e malto bruciato; più decise e prolungate le sensazioni di caramello e zucchero canna sul finale.

Taste is quite sweet malty, caramel, toffee, raisins - fruity, bit leathery, some very low hoppy bitterness in the finish, short lasting aftertaste. Medium to full bodied and bit syrupy, low carbonation.

33cl bottle. Dark clear amber pour with thin tan head. Aromas of port wine, ripe fruit and old leather. Taste is medium bitter, sweet, full-bodied and malty. little carbonation, oily palate. Aftertaste is sweet and sour, again with the port-wine finish. Winter beer. Definitely.

Savagesteeler (29) - Warszaw, POLAND - APR 29, 2015
Butelka 0,33 Aromat słodowy, lekko alkoholowy, da sie także wyczuć nuty chmielowe. Piwo klarowne o bawie burzystonwej, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, lekko beżowa. W smaku od razu wyczuwalne słody, pozostajaca słodycz, ale także alkohol, przyjemny i nie wyróżniajacy sie, Lekkie żelazo. Średnie wysycenie, średnia pijalność. Podsumowując, to klasyczny, ale bardzo przyjemny strong scotch ale.

Magela (80) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 25, 2015
Aromas herbais. Seu sabor é uma mistura suave de hervas com o amargor de malte tostado e um toque de caramelo. Uma cerveja boa, mas não vá com grandes expectativas.
