2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Gusher! Pours a bit hazy, reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Cola, caramel, orange fruity, toffee aroma. Heavily carbonated. Kind of chewy, cardboard/paper, toasted malty, caramel, a bit goopy, slightly herbal flavor that finishes with a bit of citrus. This sure hasn’t held up well based on this bottle.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark orange red pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of cola in there, touch of earth, slight spice, some cherry juice. Taste is a mix of dark fruit, cola, hints of dark caramel, lots of cardboard, hints of spice, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet toffee nose, some nuttiness. Orange-gold with a small tan head. Initial taste is like the nose, sweet caramel, but followed by a pleasant banana yeastiness and some sourness. Very present alcohol, some acidic bite. Quite heavy mouthfeel. Has aspects that alone might be undesirable but together balance each other very well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head that’s gone in a flash. Unassuming aroma of toffee and biscuit. Nearly full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Toffee and biscuit flavor with a lightly acidic element. Finishes tangy and malty. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy caramel color with a slight head. The aroma is apples and it tastes of some cinnamon with a zing of that which lingers on the palate.

bottle from Coffee Grounds. I can say nothing that Terminus’ review doesn’t already say perfectly. Fazit: not bad but not really a scotch ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a large beige puffy head that dissipates very slowly and leaves clumpy lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel, toffee, perhaps a touch of cardboard. Flavor is fairly spiced, cinnamon, allspice, caramel. Medium sweet, no real tartness other than a bit of orange zest(?). Medium body, nice mouthfeel, but not really digging the spiciness and slight acidity.
