Not quite retired it seems. Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy dark amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is sweet malt, sticky toffee caramel fudge. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich bubbly sweet malt, light vinous oak palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A big sweetie with and awesome nose.

Red brown. Aroma is amazing! Wood, sweetness, malt, all blended together perfectly. Taste is same with a real smoothness. Mild bitterness. Palate is sticky. Overall, the best scotch ale Iíve yet had. Far superior to the basic stonecutter.

On tap at Cookie. Full marks, rich and complex. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, brandy. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Taster at Warners, thanks! Really loved the base beer, so was keen to see what this was like. I was very impressed, solid beer that augments the base beer. Even has a coconut flavour, simply delicious! Well worth a try.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2012 Growler at Mane Liquor. Pours caramel brown with a small, dense and sticky off white head. Great lacing. Nose is sweet and appealing. Lots of dark fruits - raisin, plum, dates with some heavy toffee behind it all. Milk chocolate comes through very nicely and you get the subtlety of the oak notes coming through on the finish. Dark fruits and vanilla play a big role in this one. Milk chocolate is the big one here though. Smooths it all out to finish nicely. Has a slight bitter kick right on the finish but works nicely. Warming as it goes down. Spritzy carbonation which smooths out towards the end, very creamy brew. There is the faintest hint of coconut throughout the brew which adds a nice touch to it. Great stuff. Really enjoyable

Pours brown with a small head. Nose shows rich oak characters including vanilla and coconut, while the malt provides chocolate and caramel notes. Really interesting oak characters. Similar flavours, much the same in terms of coconut-like oak followed by more caramel and chocolate. Carbonation seems a little excessive. Feels a bit like the base beer canít support this level of oak, but very enjoyable nonetheless.
