smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle - A clear medium brown body with a tightly bubbled and lasting head atop. A deep malt aroma. A bit of chocolate and roast. Caramel, lightly toasted grain and a hint of smokiness ... but I think this is a good thing. The finish is also that of deep, rich malt. I’m not a huge fan of Scottish ales, but this one is nice.

Draught. Nice, soft taste with sweet, fruity flavours. The colour is reddish brown. Quite alright!

tap @ Naamat
Clear copper to mahogany beer with blonde head dissolving soon leaving a ring. Aroma has caramel and vanilla. Flavor ads some sweet berry jam. Medium and slick palate with quite strong carbonation. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste has spices, vanilla and caramel. Finally a Scottish Ale tick, and all RB style ticks. What an unsurprising beer, what an unneeded beer style.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is sweet malt, bread, spice, and alcohol. It’s smooth and has a hoppy hint to it. It stayed drinkable as it warmed. This was pretty good.

Bawelt (273) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2015
Au premier abord, elle est très engageante : plutôt épaisse, on sent de la matière. Le nez envoie un peu d’alcool et pas mal de caramel, on croirait presque une barley wine. En bouche, on ne retrouve pas du tout cela : belle attaque caramel, un peu fumée. Mais aucune longueur, fin très déséquilibrée où un houblon légèrement amer reprend le dessus et écoeure. On sent un fond légèrement épicé qui équilibre pas tellement le tout... A oublier.
