matis (140) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. Aroma reminds me one of my best - Nogne Sunturnbrew. Burning wet wood, smoke, see, salty, unriped nuts, licorice, leather some caramel... wow! After the first sip I’m back on my couch: peat, some sourness, tarry, burned black plastic. Taste is similar to 7 % alc. whisky. Freaky one.

MikeKeller (889) - Kemi, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Draught @ Osteria della Birra, Bergamo. Very dark, a bit reddish beer with a thick off-white head. Salty licorice, syrup, caramel malts and a tad of smokiness. I really enjoyed this scotch fresh from the tap.

oh6gdx (20602) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottled@Pub Winston Festival. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is leather, some ripe fruits as well as some wooden and mildly nutty notes. Flavour is pleasantly leathery along with sweet malts, some floral and wooden notes. Tasty and quite refreshing brew.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Deep black, thin long head. Salty licorice, coffee, sweet. Light to medium body, bit ash in flavor, semidry, low bitterness, lightly roasted. Malty, tasty, ok.

abc_roma (18) - roma, ITALY - MAY 24, 2014
Scotch ale non esattamente in stile. colore rosso carico e bella schiuma (bevuta alla spina). Profumo con le note torbate in preminenza, in bocca emerge il caramello, mentre il retrogusto appena amaro e torbato fa pensare più ad una rauchbier. Non troppo persistente, ma nel complesso molto godibile.

erickok (3693) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 14, 2014
Brown bodied and small head. Sourdough bread, fermenting fruit, slight smoke even. Pleasant sweet taste, quite full malty mouth feel also because if the soft carbonation. A style that never impresses me, but I really enjoyed this one. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

KombatAle (119) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
33cl Light brown, no foam?!. Nose is caramalts, smoked notes, sugary. Light body, flat texture. Too smoked, a bit of caramel and brown sugar.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a minimal white head. Aroma of toasted malts, some smoke and old gouda(!). Interesting. Flavour of caramel, red berries, distinct peatiness, grassy bitterness, residual sugar and some wood. Medium bodied and low carbonation. Finishes sweet and peaty. Not very balanced.

fridus (5) - lucca, ITALY - APR 7, 2014 does not count
Colore ambrato scuro, schiuma leggera e che svanisce dopo poco, già al naso si sentono i malti tostati, caramello, note torbate che fanno pensare proprio alla scozia, alla bocca bel malto, tornano i sentori tostati e torbati e pure il caramello, finale caldo, amaro presente ma leggero in linea con lo stile. Buona!

Brandman (2097) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2014
Brown body, offwhite head. Aroma has sweet burned candy, dark fruits, plum and dates. Sweet and round flavour with chocolate, dark fruits. Just really nice and smooth.
