3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a cola color with hints of ruby around the edges. Aroma had some complexities with caramel up front followed by dark fruits and anise. At first sip I noticed the malty characteristics with burned caramel following with the black licorice right behind. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium with just the right amount of carbonation. A solid scotch ale but nothing memorable.

Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Nottingham. Dark brown with cream head. Sweet fruity notes, blackcurrant hints, syrupy on the palate with caramel. It’s okay.

Poured from a can. Very dark brown with a tan head. Malty, caramel nose. Sweet taste, lots of caramel malt notes, with a little hopiness. Feel is medium with light carbonation and some stickiness. Very enjoyable beer, might go well with apple pie.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog Nottingham. A deep ruby brown colour with a very thin beige head. Aroma of toffee, oak, vanilla, some chocolate, subtle raisin and slight smokiness. Taste of toffee, oak, coffee, some chocolate, subtle roasted malts, raisin, subtle smoke and a hint of burnt toast. Full bodied and a smooth texture. A dry, lingering, roasted, smoky bitterness in the finish. A full bodied, full flavoured scotch ale. Really like the roasty, smoky aspects of it. Lovely.

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? It’s clean; doesn’t feel like 8% and it’s 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.
