Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a hazy amber with very minimal off white head. Aroma of cherries with hints of booze. Taste more of raisins and dark fruit up front with ample booziness and carbonation that follows.

A little bit strange scotch, with a winey character that overcomes the more usual notes to raisins, biscuit and dark dried fruits. The aspect, reddish, is also clearer than the average scotch. However, it has a pretty nice texture that enhances the overall. Good beer, not extraordinary.

bomber with no visible date on it and purchased at a discount. Kind of wish my wife would stop watching this show about midwives so loudly... Nose is butter and toffee. Boozy. Sip adds a general maltiness and some toast. I’m going to get this way colder before my final rating. A little better, but still super sweet. Glad I didn’t pay full price.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo. septiembre de 2013. Muy especiada y caramelizada con sabores intensos de maltas y cereales. Cuerpo ligero con espuma no muy persistente fácil de beber. Color cobrizo oscuro. Al puro estilo escoces. No muy interesante.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy golden brown with off-white lacing. Smells of toast and malt. Tastes like it smells, only with some sweetness too. Average on the palate. Eh.

10/10/2012. 22 oz. bomber. Reddish brown with a short tan head. Roasted malt and caramel aromas with light fruit. Semi-sweet flavors with fruit, light hops and caramel leading the way. Not my favorite.

Enormously sweet, with additional fruit and raisins and alcohol qualities the warmer the beer gets. A bit of a chore.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured dark ruby-ish/red with a khaki head. Tasted like a Scotch ale. Malty, sweet, some mild fruit esters. Mild booziness and pretty simple and not overly complex. I enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with a note of alcohol.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
A very plain beer, all-around...kinda weak aroma and not much aromatic depth, but what’s there is pleasant enough. Syrupy-watery-fizzy in the mouth, and rather sweet too, so not terribly fun to drink. The definition of average.
