3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark, dark brown with a very small tan head. Smell is fairly strong of alcohol, a bit of cola and caramel. Taste also strongly that of alcohol, with a great deal of depth. I detect slight amounts of smoke to provide a background to the roasted chocolate and hop foreground. Finishes a tad bitter. Thick, slick and sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown that looks ruby when you let light through it. Tan head. Nose is heavy caramel with a touch of a peaty tone. Flavor is sweet with a touch of smokey background. Feel is good. Slightly sticky, but smooth. Pretty drinkable, though the level of sweetness (I think) detracts from it just a little bit.

fine offering from this great brewer. Malty for sure, but also more burnt flavors than I was expecting. Smokey for sure, and very enjoyable...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark, reddish brown with a solid beige head. Very malty aroma of grain, cocoa and a wee bit of smoke. Flavour is sweet and also has elements of cocoa/chocolate along with roasted malts and a nice bitterness supplemented by a light smokiness. A very nice beer indeed, though not overly complex.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Duft af Chokolade og karamel og let humle.
Smag af røg, chokolade, bitter sød karamel.
Eftersmag er røget og tør.
Udemærket øl. Super duft i starten der dog aftager.
For meget whiskey eftersmag til mig.

Pours dark mahogony with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet malt with molasses. Flavor is also sweet, but is nicely balanced by some hop bitterness. Roasted flavors come in late. The alcohol is very well hidden. A good Scotch ale.
