This is a potent Scotch Ale. Malty flavors throughout which mask the high alcohol pretty well. Caramel, some spice, just a bit of darker, roasted malts. Lots of alcohol.

Piwo mocno alkoholowe slodkie. Kolor rubinowo czerwony srednia piana pecherzykowa lecz szybko opada. Aromat winny, drzewny i przypominal mi wilgotna chlodna piwnice. Smak tresciwy na przemian slodkie likierowe wino i daktyle i figi w tle. Do tego etanol. Ogolnie czuc tu dobra rasowa szkole rzemieslnicza ale przy slodkawe moze byc to piwo dla niektorych.

Bottle, pours fairly dark, slightly brownish tinge. Big tan head. Aroma is lots of caramel & scotch in there. Big boozy scotch ale. I can already tell this is well done. Flavor is robust, some cherries, dark fruit (prunes? fig?), cinnamon, booze, scotch, slightly quad-like notes. Wow, this is well done. I let this one warm up to the right temp. as well, so itís really pleasant right meow.

Bottle. Brown, medium beige head. Quite heavily carbonated. Aroma cinnamon, marzipan, sweet dough, milk chocolate. Taste in line with aroma, complex, leaving mainly sweet nutty palate. Very nice ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2015 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. The aroma is malty chocolate with notes of raisin, caramel, light biscuit, and coffee with hints of cinnamon late. As it reaches room temperature it takes on a tiramisu coffee like aroma. The appearance is a murky, nutty brown that?s dark and topped by a tan, small soap bubble head, that has a light retention and no lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The slick, syrupy texture has a light fizz and a full body with a toasted and smokey / ashy note and flavors of a chocolate chip cookie and coffee dessert. It finishes crisp and woody with an ashy, cocoa powder flavor, as well as a note of dry, smokey chocolate chips amd wafer cookies. It leaves an aftertaste of bourbon, caramel, nuts and light grapes.
