500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin white head and a faint biscuit like aroma. The taste is malt forward with caramel and apricot most noticeable. The body is thick and rich with a pleasant after taste where you can taste the high abv. Overall, I’ve had this a few times and would continue to buy but it is quite heavy going.

Bottle at home after a satisfying Dumbarton victory in freezing conditions. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is boozy and malty with not much else going on. Taste is sweet liquorice, dark malts, boozy with a slightly dry finish. Not my preferred style but this was a bit better than I expected.

Clear chestnut color with offwhite foam. Aroma of malt, banana, wheat and aged beer? Like suttle alcohol aroma and heavy? Palete, very smooth and dense, thick and heavy with long lasting finish. Tastes of malt, yeast and alcohol mainly. Overall interesting one, has nice full taste to it, does taste quite strong though but definatly worth a try.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark amber with moderate head. Not much aroma. Flavor is malty with a bit of crystal sugar, tapering to a moderately bitter finish. It would be better if the sweetness/heaviness didn’t clash with the bitterness so much.
