3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle poured a dark brown with deep red highlights. Aroma was malty with some sweet hints of maybe caramel. Flavor was sweet but not at all cloying; very well balanced. Nice mouthfeel. Initially a very metallic finish but I expect that it will dissapear as the beer warms. Yes, I was correct. Not sure what temp I started at but it was too cold the whole package opens up as the beer approaches room temp.

33cl bottle in a McChouffe goblet. Pours a garnet/hazy brown colour with a beige head. Very much in the vein of a scotch ale. Comparable with McEwans Champion (they use(d) the same yeast) but on a much more professional scale. Less bitterness but the juicy fruit, bready and yeast taste. Good for the style.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cl bottle from a bottle retailer. It pours a murky dark amber-brownish liquid with a high and consistent tan head that lasts throughout the beer and leaves a nice lacing. It looks delicious. The aroma is very complex: at first, some smokiness comes to your nose, later followed by some dark fuits, spices, burnt caramel and brown sugar. The flavour is very similar, but less smoky and with a little wood. It is extremely sweet, but not annoying; it blends perfectly with the alcohol, giving a pleasant maltiness with no booze to sense. There is also a little bitterness, which is stronger in the aftertaste, when some grassy hops suddenly appear, along with a new hint of smoke. It is softly carbonated, with a full body and a creamy mouthfeel that leaves all your mouth wanting more. It ends dry. Perfect presentation for a nearly perfect beer! A MUST!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice brown pour with a decent light tan head that sticks around and plasters the sides. Aroma’s a little yeasty, some roasty and caramel malt notes but fairly vague. Flavor is nice. Earthy, toasty, some dried fruit and roast malt with sweetness. Decent stuff, not a hint of the 8%.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 330ml. A beautiful dark mahogany beer with a medium size frothy head. It has a strong aroma of alcohol, roasted malt, caramel and spices. Taste is bitter and reminds me of toasted chestnusts. Smooth character. It has faint carbonation and considerable astringency. Strong alcoholic aftertaste, yet it doesn’t feel overwhelming.
