3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a tall boy can into a Oskar Blues pint glass deep dark brown with a beige head.
Aroma is sweet saintly caramel malts. Subtle smoke tho others tasting with me disagree.
Flavor is flat out Scotch ale like a job. Roasty ,malted delicious. So well done sweet.
One of the smoothest scotch ales EVER. And in a can. What not to like. Do feel the "nitro" version is more creamy than the non nitro version. Maybe its a mind meld of sorts but like this so much.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dåse. Klar rubinrødbrun med et lyst beige skum. Heftig duft af karamel, toffee, brødnoter, brændt sukker, grillet ananas, milde røgnoter. Malten har hovedrollen, men hold da kæft, hvor er der power og krudt i smagen. Lang, let boozy finish. Tak, Gisle

16oz Nitro can. Very dark, almost opaque brown/black with plenty of the signature nitro upside-down bubbles and a beautiful head about one finger thick. Smells dark, bready, warm, good hop character; some toffee and wood. Very creamy mouthfeel. Dark oak character, smooth hops, bread, some yeast, chocolate, a touch of coffee, plenty of peat and smoke. Nice.

Nitro can. Pours a dark cola color. Thick creamy light-tan head. Nice lacing. Malty, chocolaty and caramel aroma. Taste mirrors the aroma but your can pick up on the alcohol. Thinner mouth feel than I expected with the nitro.

nitro can..pop goes the widget..looking forward to this one...pours is great once everything settles down in glass leaving a creamy coating atop that remains throughout..nose is dominated by sweet figs..bit of raisin..taste is really smooth all around..getting some hazelnut..not any real trace of the 8 av..quite good and liking the nitro can..
