Pours mahagon, amber. Quite flat. Nose has a bit of caramel. Nothing too exciting, although I was hoping for something. Taste has caramel, bit of smoke but vegetables and iron also there.. Aftertaste is bitter and messy . Probably not in its best condition.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500 ml bottle @ Alles Elbe, Hamburg) Hazy chestnut-coloured beer with a creamy head, interspersed with some larger bubbles. Looks quite appealing to me. On the nose there’s a lot of dried fruit - raisins and the like. The beer was advertised as Scotch Ale, so that seems fitting. In the mouth though, it’s a different matter. Much more strongly hopped than I expected, therefore with resinous notes as well. And then of course plenty of roasted malty aroma that accumulates on the roof of the mouth. A very subtle smokiness too, but I might have missed that without reading the description! The whole thing is not subtle at all, though. Intense aroma and bitterness, and solid malty body. Although I have come to value lighter drinkable beers more, I was quite impressed with this stronger one! (And no infection whatsoever detectable in the bottle I had, might I add, as I read the other reviews)
