Amazing beer. Complex sweet and rich flavour, long finish, absolutely delicious. Only down side is that it is expensive!

It pours dark hazy brown, thin head that lightly retains. It has a strong aroma, sweet, caramel, brown sugar, maple syrup. It has a sweet, syrup taste, quite strong bitterness with a long bitter finish, fantastic beer.

330ml bottle. Pours a mid brown colour with a hint of ruby. Dense beige head which gradually settled and left lace rings down the glass. Aroma of prunes, molasses and burnt malt. Quite a sweet taste which develops into a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and a gentle alcoholic warmth. OK but a little too syrupy for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle- thanks Brew. Rich dark body, big rough head. Sweet aromas of plums, golden syrup, malt and toffee. Body is smooth, slightly sticky. Nice bit of burnt toffee and smoke to balance the fruity plum and caramel flavours. Had this at just the right temperature in just the right glass, and it was a true delight.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2013 Not a bad tasting beer. Pretty nice flavour and nice taste that is left in your mouth afterwards. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with not much white head that’s gone very quickly. Nose is very rich. It has a rich, sweet nose, with a bit of caramel, candied orange, slight hint of coffee and bitter chocolate. The nose is almost like smelling some sort of pudding. Taste is slightly citrusy, and quite sweet. There are notes of coffee and some light smoke on the finish, and a lingering caramel sweetness throughout. Pretty good, but a bit too sweet for my tastes.

Moonshine Scotch Ale, Dark Tasty and potent. A personal favorite, runs at a touted 8.5% so on the high end for content. Comes in a nice 330 ml bottle, but still tips the scales at 2.3 standard drinks.
Malty, dark and smooth, recommend after a meal, but not to cold. It can be hard to find but is well worth the effort
Personally, I get toffee taste after drinking it. Full bodied malty-ness, perfect beer for relaxing after a long day and a good meal.
