2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium body caramel color with a finger of eggshell foam. Aromas are sweet toffee, toasted marshmallow and vanilla. The palate follows the nose like a slightly alcoholic cream soda... lots of sweet toffee, light bubbles and some spicy oak character in the background. Could see this appealing to people with a sweet tooth but has it has enough weirdness especially the strange artificial sweetener finish for me to enjoy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with thin head. Skunky aroma right up front, vanilla, wood, cheap booze. Taste is very sweet, boozy, more vanilla, caramel. Oily texture. Thin mouthfeel. Fizzy palate. Long sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml, flaske, 6,6 %, købt i Netto, Roskildevej i Valby, 25. september 2013.
Helt klar ravfarvet skotsk ale med flygtigt hvidt skum.
Duft af rom-noter breder sig i stuen, men aroma af vanilje- og karamel også tilstede.
Smagsbilledet starter ret sødt, hvorefter rom-smagen overtager og vaniljen slutter billedet af. Middel indhold af kulsyre. En ret parfumeret ale vil mange nok mene, men jeg finder den hæderlig.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little smoky on the nose, but not much hop at all. Kind of a biting barrel-aged quality to it, without the development some hopping and malts with structure would have imparted.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Dam Pub, Thornbury. Dark amber colour with bubbly head. Slight sweet aroma. Medium bodied, sweet tasting with the oak flavour coming through prominently. Nice beer for a bit of change from the usual. Seems to taste better on draft than when I have tasted it from a bottle in the past.

This beer didn’t seem to know what it was trying to be. It was almost special but weaker than described.
