3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 11C. Dirty amber with a pale beige head.Aroma of toffee, spice, flowers, surprisingly strong citrus - oranges, grapefruit. Slightly solventish. Lowish carbonation is nice, quite creamy textured. Sweet caramel, peach. Spices, light floral. Quite hoppy, but the citrus disappears. Gentle finish with a little bitterness. Well in date, but maybe didn’t travel that well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange-brown pour with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of toffee, vanilla, oak, licorice, and a touch of bread. Licorice comes out more in the flavour, with some toffee and a light smokiness. ABV is very well masked, and the mouthfeel is a little thin for the style. Very nice flavour though, and overall a tasty scotch ale.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A rich darkish ale with a lovely complex depth of flavour. Toasted malts, noticeable wheat, chocolatey sweetness, spicy notes and floral hops. Lovely beer, very easy drinking for a 7%er.

Very nice brew for the cold weather. A traditional ale with tons of malt balanced with some hops. I would love to try this with spruce or heather.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle. A blurry kinda dark amber almost brown looking one in the glass and it has a medium sized first bubbly then more creamy and lacing (which by the way looks like tiger strips) light beige top. On the nose it gives away sweet malty toffee sweetness with a fudge like present. Also there are traces of yeast and dried dark fruits. It actually smells fairly nice this. It has a mild oily mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft and gentle. Tastes much the same as it smells. It’s malty and caramel sweet, a little bit of wet rocks and yeasty nuts. A little peppery arugula like sting in the finish and aftertaste makes it even more interesting. A little bit of alcohol is also present here. Got way more than I was expecting. 13.11.2013
