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.

Tognetta (720) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 28, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 Âmbar avermelhada sem resíduos, espuma bege de média formação e persistência. Aroma trás centeio, malte, xarope, açucar queimado. Paladar de médio/alto dulçor, baixo amargor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final caramelado de média persistência, álcool bem inserido junto com o lúpulo transmitindo boa drinkability. Açucar queimado se mantém constante. Pra melhorar sugeriria pouco menos dulçor e mais corpo.

Cajun (389) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle - Pours deep amber/brown, thick white fluffy head, good lacing. Aroma of sweet malts and licorice. Caramel, rich dark roasted grains, brown sugar. Malty, but a good hops presence that completes this ale.

Muzzleloader (34) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours dark amber with white one-finger head. Sweet dried fruits and complex sweet maltiness in the nose. Taste is sweet. Bitterness is very moderate. Body is complex maltiness and despite the sweetness, I’d call it balanced. Moderate carbonation. Sweetness and full body is well supported by the strong alc.%.

Iznogud (2505) - CROATIA - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle, 330ml, shared with JFK10000. Pours clear dark amber with beige head. Roasted malts, bit bready, caramel, some dried fruit. Not bad, but unfortunately too sweet for me.

mice (804) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Täysin kirkas, läpinäkyvä olut vaahtoaa melko vähäisesti. Tuoksussa makeaa maltaisuutta, jännää rusinamaista otetta varsin runsaasti ja hedelmää. Maku hedelmäinen, runsaan makean maltainen, marjainen ja hieman pähkinäinen. Makeus menee vähän överiksi.

Leini (1807) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark brown body, pretty much crownless. Fruit, toffee, hint of smoke and vineous notes in the aroma. Flavor follows the same path, but with a bit more fruityness and some bitterness.

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Caramel and malt notes. Deep brown with a fast fading head. More caramel and perhaps a touch of clove with a sweet presence. Medium bodied with a sweet finish.
