3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a red hue and a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, honey, caramel, coffee and dark fruit with a dry, mildly bitter, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Quite nice, very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 (33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours a rather dark chestnut brown with a thin and fine-looking head. Aroma has toffee/caramel and chocolate in it and the texture is really awesome. Not all convinced by the taste though which (much like the aroma) is rather thin. Feels like there?s going to happen something great but it doesn?t. Sort of ends with a chocolate caramel grainy kick that lingers for quite a while! Decided to pair it with a dram of Auchentoshan 12 :)

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala, Lumpur. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head and some clingy lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit, alcohol, some malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a big fruity, light burning alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with thin brown head, no lacing. Aromas of caramel, roast and coffee. Taste is sweet, bitter and full-bodied. Low carbonation, oily palate. Aftertaste is sweet and warm. Good beer, a bit too sweet for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une belle robe noire encre, un corps onctueux, des arômes subtils de miel, douceur, épices et des saveurs agréables faites de douceur, de miel, de fleurs et d’épices.
Plus pas mal avec mention spéciale pour le nez surpassant le reste.

Aroma’s really spil out the glass. Sweet, boozy, some hops. Palate is long and dry. Rich, robust. Drinks like a real sipper- thought it was up around 9%. Delicious

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Black with a small head. Malty and slightly sweet. Quite powerful but at the same time quite complex. Sweetness dominates but doesn’t take over. A good example of this style.
