Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Dark brown. Aroma is mostly malty - mainly a light caramel. Toffeeish taste, decent malt character, lots of sugars. Not overly complex, but an ok scotch ale.

330ml bottle from Black Isle Brewery. Dark chestnut brown, good head. Sour treacle vegetable aroma. Sweet vanilla malt flavour. Watery with sweet aftertaste. Not my sort of beer.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2013
Bruna con shciuma fitta e persistente. Aroma ricco di malto molto complesso con tracce di liquirizia. Al palato attacco dolce soffocato un pň da un amaro lieve di fondo. Verso fine sorsata appare un incatevole sapore aromati e rinfrescante: un connubio tra la menta e la liquirizia. Ottima davvero.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
(Bottle) Pours near black with dark brown highlight. Creamy nougat coloured head. The aroma holds dark bread, grain, light flowers, grapefruit, port, dark chocolate, earth, dark fruits, meat, smooth wood, and touch of smoke. The flavour is light (to medium) sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with note of yummy malt, fresh hops and balanced fruity/spicy/mineral-ish undertones. The mouthfeel Is clean (in a good way), soft, round and light acidic with a light to medium carbonation. Roast caramel and friendly hops on the finish. Medium bodied.
