Deep brown pour with minimal head. Big caramel, boozy orange liqueur aromas. Taste is caramel, dried fruits, dark toffee, and alcohol warmth; oily, thick, really nice mouthfeel,

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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Big malt caramel sweetness. Like melted down toffee. Bit too sticky sweet for me, but very desserty. Crafted with love, but needs a bit of peatyness to balance it out a bit.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a dark hazy brown with a thin beige coloured head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. No visible carbonation. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel malt and a hint of alcohol. Taste of sweet malt and fruit with some roasted malt and a taste of alcohol. Syrupy mouthfeel. Medium body. Sweet from start to finish and with a long sweet to bitter-sweet finish. Nice but a bit too sweet for me.

Strong everything, smell, taste, alcohol content. It’s dark and extremely powerful.

A very fine beer, definitely worth the cost. Everything about this beer is powerful - the aroma, the flavour, the alcohol content (which is very masked.) A dark and rich beer, best enjoyed slowly.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a nice brown hazy colour to it with a caramel smell, minimal head and dissipates quickly. Definitely sweet tasting and masks the alcohol until the last second when it mixes well and lingers. A sweat pleasing scotch ale.
