Deep red brown pour with a nice lasting off white head. Aroma is nutty, molasses, and toast with a hint of peat. Taste follows but has an odd sharpness in the finish. Sweet and malty. Medium body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very good scotch ale. Medium body and creamy. Grassy and leafy hops sit on bready, cracker maltiness. Some peat, not real sweet, nutty, alcohol is mostly hidden and faint raisin.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice strong ale that doesn’t totally taste of alcohol. Bitter and peaty for sure. Mildly sweet and nutty. Not bad.

Bottle, 355 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours hazy brown with a small head. Dried fruits, caramel, liquorice, toffee. Sweet. Has alcohol note which I disliked. Can’t say I’m thrilled with this one.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a mahogany-ruby red with one finger tan head which fades to pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of toffee, caramel, sweet malts, smoke, bread pudding, toasted bread, butterscotch, and brown sugar. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with the addition of some light grassy and piney hops. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, complex, well balanced scotch ale that is overly sweet like a lot of beer is the style.
