sjorsvdg (407) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Deze scotch ale heeft een aroma van boerenjongens, pruim en kersen. De smaak heeft karamel en gebrande mout in zich en doet denken aan herfstbok. Toch zitten er meer fruitige lagen in dit bier.

L_Lovecraft (211) - - MAY 19, 2016
Toffee, dark fruits, roasted malts, reddish/intense dark brown with a good tan head quite persistant, medium body, law carbonation, taste of toffee, roasted, hints of smoke, alcohol is very well hidden (maybe too much, warming is present only in the aftertaste)...a very elegant scotch ale but this witch can do better.

kran w Heritage Birreria Artigianale. na szybko: aromaty glownie karmelowe, troszke chlebowe, troche orzechowe, generalnie delikatne. podobnie w smaku, slodkie, lekkie piwo, w ogole poludniowcy robia mam wrazenie sporo lekkich piw. a przy 7.5% to niebanalne wyzwanie wszak.

Bottle from VP Aker Brygge enjoyed at home
A gusher. Pours rust dark brown with a fantastic creamy tanned head. Smell of smoke and wood, toffee, ash, dark malts. Medium sweet, alot of toffee at first, then tar, smoke and ash, quite well balanced off. Maybe too much carbonation, it sure is lively for a scotch ale. Moderate bitter finish. Totally, quite enjoyable
