3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear dark reddish brown, with a thin tan head and little lace.
Aroma is malty, caramel, smoke, peat and a touch of yeast.
Flavor is sweet, caramel, smoke, with a touch of yeast and a light hop bitterness. The bottle was 10 months old, so it might be past itís prime. Need a fresher example to re-rate.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle possibly just past the best before. Pours burnt red/brown with a thin cream head. Aroma is heavy on Vegemite, not much else coming through. Taste is Vegemite, wheetbix and scotch. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, not at all thin. I donít love this beer but itís certainly drinkable and very sessionable for its 8.5%.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to tulip. Hazy copper pour with about a finger of eggshell white head. A decent amount of lacing. Aroma is fairly mild - caramel, dried fruit, a little resin. Flavor follows - caramel, raisins, candied fruit, and a little pine and booze to balance it out. Definitely not hiding the ABV.

Bottle into tulip. Ruby brown w tan head that does not stick around. Mild aroma of sweet raisin and fig. Full sweet taste similar to aroma but more pronounced. Some bitterness. Can't taste the peat. Good scotch ale.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2015 Aroma isnít particularly standout, but not that bad either. Looks great. Leaves a great aftertaste. Definitely feels like a scotch ale.
