3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great for a style I donít normally choose. Sweet, almost plum-like aroma. Dark color with small head. Sweetness up front with a licorice sharpness that I associate with Scottish ales. Not much hops presence. Palate is smooth but sticky. There is a dessert character to this. Itís good and has a heaviness that limits itís pairing with some foods. More of a sipper.

Tap in Brewdog. Just a sample... Not nice. Whisky-like with a bit of cardboard thrown in.

A very fine scotch ale. Effervescent, well rounded and bold. Earthy malts, scotch, wheaty malt, dark fruits? Itís clean; doesnít feel like 8% and itís got a great smoky flavor that keeps this one very drinkable.

Really nice beer. Deep cola pour and tan head. Lots and lots of chocolate and caramel malt sweetness all over this with a touch of scotch smoke. Super solid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I think this is possibly the best beer I've ever had from a can. Pours an exceptionally refined opaque ruby brown color with a long lasting foamy khaki head. Aroma is rich chocolate malt and some coffee-like notes, some slight smokiness. On the palate, perfectly medium-bodied and creamy, full of dark chocolate malty flavors and a smoky cocoa flavor reminiscent of burnt s'mores. Just a slight boozy betrayal of the high ABV in the finish to detract from the palate, but all in all this is a delicious beer that is well done in every category!

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 Iíve 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.
