3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. BB 24/08/2014. Konttori, Tampere, Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny off-white head.
Dark fruits, sweet malt, dark hops and barley wine in the aroma.
The flavour is not as barley wine as the aroma is. Dark fruits, dates, figs and sweetness in the flavours. Very sweet and dark fruity flavour. 10.2% very well hidden. Dark fruity aftertaste.

Pours very dark brown with a large fading head.
Nose shows caramel, vanilla, woody oak, bourbon, chocolate and a port note.
Very rich flavours, more bourbon and chocolate, some harsh booze and a woody note.
Carbonation could be a bit higher.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Clear, but lumpy, very dark, reddy brown. Halo and film of light tan head. In a nutshell, it’s thick, unctuous, creamy, woody, boozy and smoky. And it’s one of my Missus’ favourites. And who am I to argue?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A strong alcohol scent is the first thing that strikes me. The flavor of oak, alcohol and maybe some butterscotch. The aftertaste fills the mouth very well of smokiness and maybe a little caramel. Bitterness is weak but good. Does the alcohol disappears the more you drink this beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

12oz bottle from Breeze Thru, cellared for 5 months; shared with ck1 and my other brother. Pours cola colored with a tan spongey head. Aroma has vanilla, caramel, light peat and some syrup. Taste is of sweet vanilla, caramel and brown sugar. Medium bodied with alcohol. Finishes sweet and long, with some alcohol in the back of the throat. A very nice adaption of a scotch ale!
