UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 smoky and fishy big hints of charcoal or it could be chocolate (burnt).smokey (clearly artificial) burnt tang sorry but this could be anchovy like! nice creamy body does’nt make up for a questionable taste. heavy broomstraw taste. this is not genuine - and you have to be very careful when you try that! it may be desired from time to time - huh! it is too thin - and does not hold it’s body.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very nice roasty smoky aroma. A bunch of chocolate of smoke in the flavor. It is a bit sweet and rich in the finish. A great scotch ale that I would certainly recommend.

Don’t dodge the can!
Really digging this beer.
Pours a dark and thick brown. Thick head after each pour. Tanned brown. Dissolves down to a thinner film. Nose is sweet and full of caramel candy.
Flavor is comples. Tons of caramel. Chocolate and toffee. Maltiness has a solid backbone. Slight--ever so--hop bitterness. Then I find a smoky essence. Medium body to a fuller and oily trexture as it warms. None of the "tinniness" that I find in most canned beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Rated 7/17/07. Dark mahogany color with red edges when held to the light. Thin tan film for a head that leaves behind a patchy lacing. The aroma is a very interesting mix of roasted malts, chocolate, and smoked wood. The flavor follows that same pattern, with a bit of caramel mixed in and a smokey, salty, bitter finish. There is a distinct Earthiness to this beer. It smells and tastes like something that came straight from nature, untouched by man. Very interesting, and totally unique to anything I’ve had to date. I will definitely explore this one again.

Can at The Rover in Göteborg. Dark brown with a nice head. The aroma has notes of malt, sweetness and syrup. The flavour is malty, sweet, slightly roasted, fruity with notes of papaya and raisin, a hint of smoke and a bit of citrus. 2376

Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head (thick lacing). Aroma is rather faint with notes of caramel, malt, toffee, and oak. Flavor consist of maple, brown sugar, malt, chocolate, and raisens. Overall an Outstanding beer. Very well balanced, smooth yet thick palate with a crisp finish. Cant even detect the alc. content. Stays Good all the way through. Never expected that out of a can.

Hazy, dark amber. Small, beige head.
Lightly sourish aroma.
A bit salty licorice. Nutty sourish flavour. Is it supposed to be like this?
