2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Inky black with a fizzy tan head which quickly disappears. Sweet aroma. Sweet taste. Leaves a feeling in your mouth like you've been sucking on a mint without the minty flavor. Not a big fan.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tastes like rich chocolate, dark chocolate, smoke and all are present through a long, smooth finish. Very strong nutty/roasted nut flavor. There is some sweetness, more fruity than sugary. I like the flavor profile quite a bit. Herbal bitter hops to balance, maybe stronger than I would have liked. This reminds me more of an imperial stout than a scotch ale. Dark brown/red, clear, tan head that dissipates. Moderate to thin palate.

A solid scotch ale. Some thickness and sweetness but a good balance. Not really my style but nice nonetheless.

Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Nutty aroma, malty, some grain, faint smoky notes and wood. Flavor is also malty with caramel and sugary sweetness, grain, bread and subtle chocolaty notes. A bit high carbonation, decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(22oz. bottle) - Big rocky off-white head, which collapses. Dark reddish body when held up to a light. Malty aroma. Flavors of grain and a bit of light brown sugar. A tad of bitterness on the tail end for balance. Very nice job!

Pours brown with hints of red and a small white head. A complex nose malt, dust and peat. Peat with smoke and just a hint of coffee. Smooth with medium body. Sweet and just a bit salty. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a deep ruddy brown, creamy tan head with solid retention. Nose is smoky, malt, iodine (like an Islay Scotch... go figure). Mouth is creamy and mildly sweet up front, nutty, caramel, smoke and some toasted oak. A little thinner and smokier than I like my wee heavy. But not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Dark red brown with an off white head. Dark toffee with smoke and nutty notes. Tart with funky yeast, not sure if this is intentional. Berries with whisky barrel. Decent but perhaps not in the best condition.
