3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark ruby ale rather than any thing else. It has a good head and a medium bodied flavour. Quite toasted, a little bit of smokiness. Medium soft carbonation. Malt and toffee.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours dark brown in color with a finger of light beige head that settles quickly leaving little head on the glass. Aroma is slightly smoky with some roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a roasted grainy bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness with some smoke. Medium body with light carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style and highly recommended.

Bottle, pours a light black, aroma is earthy with a bit of a kind of cherry smell, the cherry is in the flavour as well, there is also some roast in there and it is quite nice, this one was fairly enjoyable

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This is quite the malt bomb. Toffee, fudge maltiness dominates a light background hop bitterness. A nice winter beer but is a bit messy.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark amber red color with light brown, long lasting head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and dark chocolate. Taste is sweety/bitter combination. Sweet in start (but not too sweet) and moderate bitter in finish. Light to medium body with texture somwhere between watery and oily. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Gordon and MacPhail. Pours a chestnut colour with a good head. The nose has toffee with some ginger biscuits on the finish. The taste has ginger, liquorice and strong malt profile. In fact, there is a lot that reminds me of treacle bread. The palate is medium to full bodied with a tangy texture and a long but slightly cloying finish. Overall, this gets better the more I drink it. Itís slightly unbalanced, but it is complex.

Deep dark ruby body with a foamy white head. Aroma of cherry, caramel. Taste is roasted malt, some cherry again. Body is medium (a bit like the doppelbock style). Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured it, raised it to my nose, and was hit with a really deep, strong, black cherry and roasted malt smell. And then, the flavor. Wow. The cherry in the aroma isnít a strong presence in the taste, what I noticed instead was big, smokey, rich malt. Caramel tones, a little coffee, too. This stuff really h as a presence.
