Nitro can from Bert’s
Tawny brown color with that micro bubbled tan head that is typical of a nitrogenated beer. Sweet caramel and dark fruity aromas with a touch of smoke in both the aroma and flavor. Nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can pours dark almost opaque brown red with light edges, finger of head. Nose is nice plum, grape, some light dark wheat and soft dark fruit, nose is just a tad more subtle than I would like. Taste is similar with nice smooth palate, plum, grape, hints of fruity cocoa. Finishes with low bitterness and subtle semi sweet dark fruit notes of plum, earthy chocolate, and grape. Pretty good.

Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover, London. It pours a dark copper color with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet and lightly warming, with notes of toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg. Taste is nutty, malty, medium sweet and lightly tangy in the finish. Medium body with creamy texture and ok carbonation. Overall, ok scotch ale

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nitro can from Bottledog. A beautiful creamy brown thing to behold. Other than that it’s also really decent. Big malts but mellow and rounded. Nice rumour of funky hops somewhere over there. Golden caramel relaxing - not too sweet - and a linger of boozy fruit. Finishing medium dry whilst stroking your thigh. I love this brewer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz can, Deep reddish brown, tan head fades quickly leaving a small ring. Aroma of toffee, caramel, roasted malt. Not as sweet as some beers of this style, very enjoyable. Very creamy, good carbonation, a nice finish. This beer stays with you. I believe I have had 5-6 beers from Oskar Blues, all have been really good. Buy some!

Nitro can. Obviously a cool pour and thick creamy aroma blocking head. Deep in the glass a cool thick rich malt scent and all the way down a warm malty style-true awesomeness and taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A dark cola coloured pour with a loose beige head that quickly settles; rich whisky-like malt aroma; lots of malt flavour with sweet caramel, some toast and peaty smoke; and a long sweet malty finish. Satisfying.
