3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark walnut color with ruby highlights. Has a small beige head that settles to a nice ring and small film that leaves behind little lacing. Aroma is nutty with some light roast and hints of umami. Also get some brown sugar and chocolate. The taste is drier than expected with a smooth mild roastiness, tobacco, a slight burnt character and some nuttiness. Finishes dry and malty. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Liked aroma more than the taste because I expected a little more sweetness and complexity, but still a solid and drinkable scotch ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Deep ambery brown colour, close to black, with a mediumsized beige fluffy head. Aroma is roasted malts, mild leathery and honeyish notes as well as some berries. Flavour is coffee, chocolate, some bitter floral and fruitiness as well as some honey and mildly leathery notes. Quite a bunch of things in it, but still the result is a quite nice and balanced brew.
