3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep red-brown with a diminishing cream head and honey highlights at the edges. Aromas of raisin, apple, fig, caramel and dark bread. The flavour is dark fruit, burnt sugar, vanilla, walnuts and a little light bitterness. Very smooth mouuthfeel with a lingering sweet fruity aftertaste. Good.

Very interesting beer. Tangy, spicy aroma, with a very smooth flavor. Very warming beer. Nice color, little head or lacing.

Brilliant amber though figured it would be darker, tadbit o’ alcohol on the nose and palate which would explain the 8.5 but delightfully enjoyable

Quite dark orange brown some tan head. Aroma of yeast, grapes, malt quite like a port with a massive amount of malt in it. Tastes smokey, woody, peaty, more dry than I was expecting. Alcohol doesn’t hide too much. Resonating raisin flavors. Light carb. A very dry scotch ale = well done for the style. Unfortunately not my favorite style.

Pours a clear amber color with a small off white ring. Aroma of caramel, candy sugar, sweet dried fruits and faint fruity esters. Taste is sweet caramel, scotch, brown sugar and a nice smooth bitterness. Excellent scotch ale.

Had this after a bunch of ipa’s. The sweetness came as a schock to my pallet and I think severely altered my ability to taste this beer properly. But really sweet, caramel aroma, with a very light body.

Bottle shared at a tasting at our place. Murky dark reddish amber with beige ring. Sweet, cookie-candy aroma, sweet, a little stale then bitter with alcoholic undertones. Syrupy, alcoholic finish, full-bodied.

Nice amber color. Sweet malt on the nose. One finger of creamy rich foam. Flavor disappointed though. A bit tart and somewhat dry. Maybe this was a bad bottle. Oh well.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Dark reddish amber. Aroma of stale malt, dark fruits, alcohol, caramel, light nutty notes and minerally notes. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, stale notes, some fruitiness, a bit of alcohol, and minerally and earthy notes in a drier finish. Medium-bodied.
