Dark brown hue with a cream white head. Sweet caramel smell. A mouth full of toffee with some raisiny notes. A lovely smooth scotch ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz can into schooner glass, a nearly-opaque dark reddish brown with thick, long-lasting off-white foam, tiny little bubbles (I could swear it was bottle-conditioned), plus lots of fine lace. Perfect appearance. Intensely malty, intense caramel, toffee, woodsy/earthy/floral hop balance (though not much in the aroma). Nice hint of roasted grain bitterness, roastier yet in the aftertaste. Smelled and tasted exactly like all the authentic strong Scotch ales I’ve tasted. Impressive. Full body, chewy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, warming but otherwise well-concealed alcohol, loads of residual sweetness, though not cloying nor sticky. Very good.

For a stronger beer (8%) it is very smooth. Slightly dark good taste with a better finish.

Nitro. Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours black, huge Nitro head. Aroma is caramel malt, sweet dark fruits. Typical scotch ale. Flavor is sweet dark malt, again, typical scotch ale but it’s really good. High quality.

Pours a brown from a can, khaki-colored head. Aroma of cola, vanilla, flavor of caramel, oak, whiskey, peat. Like many scotch ales, full in the mouth but not heavy. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet malts, toffee, chocolate. Taste is rich and creamy malts, a whisky sweetness from barrel woods. Finishes lightly and smoothly.. Appearance is a black body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well with the help of the nitro gas addition.

35.5cl can on 05-Sep-2015, poured into a stemmed tulip glass. Dark brown colour with a thick beige coloured head. Thick body and softly carbonated. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate and a little caramel. Lots of chocolate on the palate, and slight roasted malt flavours. A smooth silky ale with a rich mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is sweet and malty, sugar and grandparents old school candy, you know the stuff you hated when you were a kid. Taste is dark toffee, old man’s jacket and a caramel with a slightly roasted finish. Deep and malty aftertaste with a slight licorice hint and some resin. Really pleasant and mature Scotch Ale. Great!
