Nice poor, deep deep brown, slight head. Funky aroma at first followed by a toasty sweet syrupy flavor and taste which finnishes with just a slight bitterness. Really good warming winter beer.

Recently got onto the Scotch Ales. warm feeling beer, suitable as a one off after dinner on a cold night. Taste is strong, but not over bearing, with toffee, caramel, woods, and a slight tinge of alcohol towards the end of the swig. Somewhat dark when poured. Worth a look you like darker ales.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Pours copper with thin white head. Malt and hint of alcohol make up the aroma. Malty caramel taste. Fairly smooth. Overall it is a alright but nothing that is amazing.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Hazy dark brown beer. Some light malt on the nose. Light dry and softish palate. Tired malt with mild toffee. Finishes soft and dry. Okay but a bit dull.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle, just on cool. Dense, compact, creamy beige head atop a deepest ruby body that simply shimmers in the light. Very odd aroma reminiscent of pine, nail varnish, enoki mushroom, latex gloves, sticky toffee and raw hazelnuts. Cleaned up in flavour. Generously malty; sweet upfront, sticky toffee and burnt sugar meets rust and blood tannins, burnt charred timber and dusty old hops in back. Smoky, chalky finish has just a touch of sherry to it. Knocks above its weight, well rounded and rather smooth. Still get that odd mushroom note coming through in the aftertaste. An interesting brew. Well made and very quaffable.

Pours a deep amber with a small head and minimal laving + aroma of the morning camp fire after a nights camping with a hint of sweetness. The flavour is confusing mainly sweetness with a slight ashey backing. This beer is quite different but not a stand out IMO.

A little thin and watery, but at least it is not too high in ABV. Not really like a scotch ale to me.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2012 Bottle courtesy of Nick. Pours chestnut brown with a very small beige head. Odd nose to this one, reminded me a lot of mushy peas, which I love but I don’t think it comes across very well in a beer. Taste was a little boring, mainly raisins and toffee. Just ok although scotch ales aren’t really my thing
