jkwood04 (4518) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 31, 2012
500ml bottle in an English pint. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and bread maltiness plus a little hops. Flavor has the maltiness initially but then licorice and alcohol that is not pleasant. Average texture. A weird beer that might have potential.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 3, 2012
A nice amber brown body with a tan head that had some retention and decent lace. Aroma had a nice fruity note up front, almost like apricots. A nice caramel malt base to it and some nice grassy hops. Flavor was well balanced good malt notes. Caramel with a hint of coffee. Some mild fruits A nice grassy hop profile. Smooth and easy to drink.

Bottle. Medium body with some spicy aftertaste. Not the scotch ale I was expecting. Taste almost no scotch. Maybe I prefer wee heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAY 21, 2012
Rich fruit cake and crystal malt dominated old ale. Like the brutish older brother of Fullers 1845. Enjoyable, but a little heavy handed for me. Sweet, gooey caramel comes to the fore as it warms.

TimE (3989) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 20, 2012
Mahogny color. Very malty nose of earth, cherries, wood, chocolate. Full rounded body with ton of earthiness. Superb. Full bodied, rich. Heavy for the alchol. A true winter warmer. Full bodied, earthy, woody finish. Nice.

A fine example of the style. Drinking one out of the fridge right now, but I kept an open bottle @ room temp for a couple days and it stayed delicious on the shelf above my bed the whole time... Sign me up for a lifetime subscription!

Nocturne (1082) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
500ml bottle. Dark amber with a good size fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malts, and predictably caramel also dominates the taste, along with hints of vanilla and fruit. An enjoyably sweet dessert beer, but difficult to sink a whole bottle.
