Too weak for me to be a good scotch ale. Quite malty, lightly roasted, some caramel, kinda bread, molasses. Moderate sweet, bit dry finish. More like old ale to me – too thin for scotch :P

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Dark brown to black body, with a medium, creamy, beige, not very stable head. Aroma is a bit like a sweet, dark, alcoholic cake, with chocolate, honey, caramel, dried fruits, some coffee. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, smoke, honey, caramel, dark fruits. Mouthfeel is full, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes roasty, bitter and sweet, with some alcohol warmth. Really interesting, intensive ale, that is pretty filling, maybe a bit too filling for my liking. Although a sweet beer, still in a good balance. Overall enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown color, topped with small tan colored head.
The aroma is pleasntly malty, caramel, some spices and little fruits.
The taste is sweet at first, a little flat on the carbo, roasted feel and moderate bitterness. Some caramel and alcohol can be also felt.
Another OK product by BrewDog, but.... they can do better.
