3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl. oz. can from Beers of the World. App.: deep, deep ruby brown with a creamy, light mocha head. Aroma: peaty, scotch whiskey smoke, grape-like fruitiness, roasted malt character and a bit of chocolate and vanilla. Palate: med.-full body and fairly aggressive carbonation. Somewhat creamy. Flav.: deep dark maltiness, a bit of the fruitiness and a hint of that smoke. On swallowing, a chocolatey delight! Dark caramel, toffee flavours and a slightly smokey finish. A very slight lingering bitterness. This is nice.

Yea a dark roasted aroma and color. A fairly large tan dense head, no doubt because of the can. Rich, sweet tasting. I get alot of alcohol initially in taste, a feature with this style that I do not care for.

From the can into a Delirium snifter/tulip. Dark brown, amber edges, and a frothy tan head. Muted nose of softly sweet malt. Flavor of toffee, lightly sweet malt, earth, toastiness. Simple but tasty. Smooth, medium body. Perfect bbq on the beach beer. Very nice.

Can poured a dark ruby brown color with a nice tan head. The aroma was a bit roasty with a big malt backbone. The taste was much the same with some smoke and chocolate character. The finish was slightly sweet with some noticable alcohol.

Again the best beer in a can. An odd scottish ale, this beer is big on flavor and a bit sweet for some. Grainy mocha and chocolate flavored malts thoughout. Not as smokey or creamy as they claim. Super rich! Three cans are enough.
