bottle: pours a dark cola brown with a small thin tan head. aroma is full of caramel malts soem raisins adn candy sugar, smokey and fruit also. very nice.
flavour is thick and very heavy on the palate with plenty of vinous dark fruits (raisins and dates) touches of smoke and plenty of earthiness, the malts are sweet like sugar with a little toffee flavoured malts, pretty good scotch.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Mr McDermott. Pours a dark ruby hue with a tiny head. The aroma is just amazing sweet sugars and vinous fruity aspects, some smokey earthy notes too. The flavor is likewise quite complex, tons of sweet fruit, a alcohol warmth, dry earthy peat, smoke, some very sweet sugars and caramel. As some others have said overripe fruit does fit the taste well, but there is a lot more. Pretty damn good, a lot to like.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Malty, smooth and slightly smokey, this is a nice-sipping scotch ale. The body is a deep ruby/amber. Small, off-white head that disappears. The aroma is heavy with sweet malt (caramel, cookie, roast) along with notes of overripe fruit and plenty of wood/peat smoke. The flavor is moderately sweet and very lightly bitter. The finish stays sweet. Medium body and smooth texture that turns sticky in the finish. Lively carbonation. Very nice scotch ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark brown color ale with a small foamy head with minimal retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with some toffee and caramel notes. Taste is a mix between some toffee and caramel malt with some quite sweet malt notes with some light dry hops. Body is quite full with some limited filtration and some good carbonation. Well done overall but I would have enjoyed it even more with some peat smoke malt notes.
