4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted this at the BrewDog, Glasgow in January 2012. Cask, draft flow system dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin buff head which rapidly vanished. Strong notes of liquorice and molasses, long in the nose. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts give a sweet complex base with a clootie dumpling base laden with strong honey notes. Very sweet treacle toffee and Bassets liquorice allsorts full in the mouth. No sign of hop resins in this. Finish like the aftertaste is sweet and very malty with oak cask mead notes warming in the throat. One of my favourites from the portfolio.

The color is almost back, with creamy brownish head. The aroma of dark malts is mild but subtle, interesting, with light bread and light smoke. It’s full bodied, with round and smooth mouthfeel; the flavor is a succession of waves: malt, chocolate, molasses; there is a moderate sweetness and some light smoke; some bitterness just in the final, that gets just slightly dry.
Great balanced beer, that can be sipped for long, and enjoyed with cheese.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige top. Dark toast, caramel, toffee, cocoa in the aroma. Flavor is very sweet with toffee, candy, light chocolate, alcohol-soaked leaves and berries. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm, fairly sticky finish, lots of candied sugar, sweet toast, brown sugar, alcohol, caramel. Nicely nuanced beer. Certainly sweet, so it helps if you like that.

Bottle. Black with a medium head. Malty with a slight sweetmess which is present but not overpowering. Malty aftertaste and left lots of lacing. An excellent example of this style and deliciously easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Brewdog Online. It pours very, very dark brown, with a beige head. The nose is roasted malt, wood, chocolate, honey and liquorice. The taste is liquorice, roasted malt, dark fruit, wood, tar, coffee, burnt malt and a little alcohol warmth, with a dry roasted finish. Medium to full body, moderate body and velvety mouth-feel. Not as hoppy as the usual Brewdog offerings, but for this style that’s not necessarily a bad thing. A well made Scottish Scotch Ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[keg at BrewDog Edinburgh] Brownish black pour, thin tan-coloured head. Dark chocolate on the nose, plenty of rich, spicy malt body in evidence. Similarly on the taste - the malt works quite well. Finishes quite sweet, with plenty of body. Rich all the way, but I thought the balance kept the whole thing in check
