3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Svijet Piva. Shared with the Croat & Slovak crews. Yay! Poured a dark amber-red body with an off white head. Malty aroma, honey, alcohol, slightly sticky. Dry malty taste, not nearly as sweet as expected, slightly creamy but bitter, light herbal notes, raisins, good, but not as good as I’d expected.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. I nearly always have one of these in the cellar. I never get to rate it, mind you, because its the Missus’s favourite, and she always beats me to it. Except today. And the verdict is, she’s very discerning...

Crazy good beer. Bottle from Fry's Grocery. Pours deep amber with thin tan head. Tastes of malt and dried fruit. Delicious. Hops are subtler than 50 IBU's suggests.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a DFH Ale signature glass-- Pours a dark mahogany with very little head. Has a somewhat sweet smell maybe dark fruits? First thing I tasted was booze (not complaining), yep booze with a slight Scotch ale flavor coming through at the end and than alcohol at the back of the tongue and throat to finish it off. This is a little different than the other Scotch Ales I’ve had but it is good and it will be interesting to see how many I can put away tonight.

Dégustée (bouteille) le 8 juin 2012 au Mondial de la Bière 2012 à Montréal (D7C4KPPO). Bière brune limpide. Col mince très durable. Odeur de caramel. Douce, très sucrée, peu amère. Saveur de caramel/toffee bien présente. Pas trop sirupeuse, bien équilibrée, alcool bien caché, ne ressort pas trop. Très bonne, se boit bien même si très sucrée.
