4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Canned. Great beer. I’ve never seen a beer quite this colour: a translucent rich brown aptly described as "cola-colored." The nose is long and complex with single malt scotch at the fore, rum-dipped cigar, toasted oak, molasses and moss. While the beer is quite rich there is very little sweetness no more than vanilla extract and bittersweet chocolate. There is a nice enough hop presence to provide balance and offset the density off the malt with just a little zip. A great effort, and from a can as well.

(Can 35,5 cl) Dark mahogany with a reddish glow and a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma. Full-bodied with lots of roasted malt and perhaps a wee, smoked edge. Some sweetness, some alcohol. Quite lovely. Thanks to xproudfoot for this one. 150306

Dark brown color. Strong aroma of malt and caramel, and some nuts. Good malty body, thick, a bit oily, sweet, with a lot of caramel, lacking some more bitterness and complexity, but quite good.

Dark brown with some ruby highlights. Big creamy beige head. Nose is malty and smoky with hints of chocolate. Big nutty, malty flavor with a bit of smoke and a distinct astringent bitterness. Tight, fizzy carbonation and a nice medium to full bodied feel. Very good and very satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can. Pours a dark mahogany with chestnut highlights. creamy one finger beige head that left nice lacing. Sweet malty nose with hints of smoke, chocolate malt, alcohol, and dark fruits. Very fruity flavor, chocolate malt, smoke, and a tinge of alcohol. Very full flavored and hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a syrupy and sticky texture. Fairly fizzy active carbonation. This was an enjoyable, well rounded Scotch Ale. Very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of those beers where I can tell it is a good presentation of the style but I don’t like it. Strong astringent aftertaste that is not a hop astringent. Not fan of style but mouth feel and aroma I could tell were probably ideal for style.

Very dark brown, light tan head with lots of lace and a sweet chocolately aroma. Sweet and malty, bit too sweet for my liking but still good overall.
