It pours a clear copper brown. The head starts of big, but fades away rather quickly. I can't get much aroma from this, may a hint of grain buried deep. This has a pleasant mix of sweetness, a bit of licorice, and a subdued hop profile. It makes for an interesting blend that lovers of Scottish ale should enjoy. It's a bit sweet up front for my tastes, but not too out of whack or unbalanced.

Danke an den Doppelbock für die Ermöglichung dieses Tests. Geruch alkoholisch, sehr malzig. Sehr malzig startet auch das Bier, wird ab dem Mittelteil allerdings zu süß. Das recht stabile Dunkle prickelt im Mund und wird hinten rum etwas flach. Weiterhin bleibt das malzige Aroma noch lange im Mund. Test vom 15.6.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 5,11,11,11,12,11 - 10,45

Bottled (had in 2008, tnx mabjork). Rubyish brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some nuttyness, mild earth, wooden notes as well as some slight syrupy notes. Flavour is quite similar, but also has some slight raisiny and mild plummy notes.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark beer. A malty sweet beer. More complex when fridge cold. No bitterness. Really nice malt depth and an unexpectedly good Mexican beer!

Bottle. Medium high but lasting creamy and off-white head. Clear very dark red brown body. Very malty berries aroma with berries, nuts and roasted malt. Acidic sweet caramel berries flavor with little hops bitterness low carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste.
