Bottled. Pours a medium to deep amber with a head that starts out coppery, developing into a uniform light tan. Sweet aroma of caramel and berries. Bittersweet flavors up front, dark chocolate and tart fruit. Pleasant, warm mix of hop bitterness and alcohol follows, leading to a finish that is just a bit too harsh. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied. Good level of complexity and flavor in this one.

355ml bottle. Pours dark orange brown with a small head. Aroma is rich toffee, orange and molasses. Taste has orange caramel to start. Malty molasses on the finish.

VERY malt dark bronze orange. Pretty typical scotch ale nose. Taste is where things get exciting. Malt sweetness, oak and caramelized malts. Really solid and tastes bigger than 8%

This is all right, but the hops used are just a bit too bitter for my liking.

Smokey and sweet and strong and malty with a long and reasonably hoppy finish. Completely brilliant ipa variant.

Subtly cereal, sweet caramel malty aroma, perfectly balanced. Beautiful rich dark red colour. Surprisingly subtle flavour at first leading into a creeping cereal taste accentuated by the caramelisation.

Delicious beer. Huge malts, very sweet, and even some bittering hops in the back. Almost reminds me of an American Barleywine, with its sweet viscosity. Pouts a dark mahoney amber, leaving a nice dark red lacing; with a forward, almost creamy head. Superb stuff.
