3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: dark cola brown, short fizzy tan head. Aroma: subdued aroma of caramel malt, some toffee. Taste: sweet caramel and toffee, brown sugar, treacle, leather, and light smoke. Finish: lingering malty sweetness, but with a surprisingly clean finish given the malt bill and high abv. Notes: Really nice scotch ale. Alcohol perfectly hidden. This beer is a troublemaker. Draught at the source.
