Love wee heavies and heard good things about oskar. Nice wiff, all the scotchiness is present and accounted for. Beautiful deep brown with obligatory thin, lacy head. Flavours are all there, delightful touch of peat behind the toffee goodness, but the mouthfeel doesnít back it up. Nice lightly bitter finish rounds out a very drinkable, but not chart topping, bevvie.

Can shared by Mart, thanks! Brown beer, tan head. Nose is caramel, bready malt, mild metallic notes. Flavor is caramel, malt, chocolate, sweetness; hoppy finish with resiny-oily notes. Hides the booze pretty well.

Can - The most subjective brew Iíve seen where the reviews are all over the place. I get... a dark pour, ruby brown, with creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavors of rich scotch malt, dark fruit, spices, and hints of smoke. I get a ting of sausage, but everyone thinks Iím crazy - just putting that out there. Thick mouth-feel, malty, and hops middle and end. I get a maple syrup alcohol aftertaste with a little smoke. Word!

Dark, dark amber in color. Thick, coarse head, spotty lace. Lots of earthy tones in the aroma, caramel, some tea and tobacco. Caramel and dark fruits on the tongue...a decent, earthy, sweet lingering finish. Hints of snoke. Par for the course for the style....a very easy 8%

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I finally found this and i have to say its pretty good but not up to the ratings given so far (in my humble opinion). It pours a nice deep brown almost black body that when held to light has a amber apperance. Thin head and not much lace. Not much aroma, but the flavor was sweet with lots of caramel and a little smoke. Overall its pretty good and worth a shot and since its in a can i guess i can take it tubing next summer. : ) Originally rated on 11/18/08

Tasting @ Budapest. Pours a dark cola color with a creamy light beige head. Aroma of scotch, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste similar to aroma. Nice balance (scotch is not overbearing). Good.
