4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice easy-drinkin’ Scotch Ale with a nice punch. The aroma is roasty and not overly-sweet by any means. Based on smell, I thought the beer wouldn’t have any sweetness. The taste, however, brings a mellow caramel roast with hints of doughy malt. I really like this beer. It compares a lot to Oskar Blues Old Chubb in smoothness, but is less sweet than Chubb, which is a good thing. The ABV of this beer makes it a great find. AAA+++

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brunatna. Piana biała, niska, szybko opadająca. Aromat bardzo przyjemny bogaty i złożony. Karmel, owoce (jabłko, żurawina). Smak zdecydowanie karmelowy, żurawina oraz posmaki przypominające cięższe trunki. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie punktowe. Pełne, treściwe. Alkohol genialnie przykryty. Jest to moje pierwsze piwo w stylu "Scotch Ale". Zdecydowanie warte uwagi piwo jaki i styl piwny.

Bottle from Pi-Bar. Feels like the Coca-Cola of beer. Dark, sweet, thick, viscous. Still distinct scotch. Lots of carbonation, not as warming as others. High drinkability, smooth texture. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. on tap at Federal. Dark brown with a ring and spots of cream. Nose of dark toffee, a bit of earthy leaf, apple and dried grass. Flavor is more of the same great mix plus some chocolate and graham cracker. Medium-heavy body has smooth low-medium carbonation and a definite dessert beer slant, but still highly drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Reddish pour with a quick lasting head. The aroma has a definite cracker or more precisely Graham Cracker note with dark malts, a ripe fruit note, vanilla,and a low hop profile. Missing the Peat character that I like in Scotch ales. Light to medium body. The taste is a step up from the aroma with a focus on the caramel and toffee and vanilla malt sweetness, Mild to moderate bitterness to finish. The vanilla put me off a touch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark, almost opaque color. 1/2 inch tan head recedes quickly leaving little/no lacing. Dark fruit aroma, smokey, some chocolate or caramel perhaps. Thick mouth feel. Smooth and creamy. Dark fruit and sweet malts in the initial taste, with some very mild bitterness in the middle and aftertaste with an earthy finish. Overall, fruity, Smokey, mild and malty. Just the barest hint of booze.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours with a mahogany colored body and a very good tan head. Gunky sediment in the bottle with a bit in the glass too.
Nice caramel malt aroma and flavor. Well hidden alcohol: I was surprised to see 9.75% ABV listed.
Full body with a light touch of alcohol.

Bottle (from beergium). Pours dark ruby with beige head. The small head stays for some moments. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malt. Flavor is sweet and somewhat bitter, caramel, malt. Finish is lingering caramel sweetness with some burtn sugar-citric bitterness. Alcohol is mostly covered, feels potent, but not boozy. Overall: good, but maybe bit too simple.
