Oak, Scotch, chocolate in the taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1010 - March 1st, 2014 - On a #blinddate at Beer Revolution. Should never take skanks to a beer bar I like. Light brown amber pour with a bubbly tan foam with little retention. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, vanilla, oak, honey. Taste is quite sweet at first, prolonged oaky vanilla, light tobacco, toffee sweetness and the presence of oak in the body. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Very nice medium-full body, mild alcohol note on the palate which is typical for the style, and lots of rich sweetness.

Ambré sombre avec un petit col beige. L’arôme du malt avec un peu de tourbe. Le goût est pareil avec un peu de sucre. C’est un peu mince pour le style.

Really decent, flavorful scotch ale. Looks like a Newcastle Brown Ale. Aroma is slightly sour, very malty, lots of toast. Good flavor - nutty, some brown sugar, heavy malt, with a little bit of sweetness reminiscent of something like Gulden Draak (though nearly as sweet). Palate is great - low carbonation, nice and smooth. Worth trying.

On tap. Pours a reddish brown with medium head. Aromas of spice cake, biscuits, and roasted malts. Flavours of burnt malts, light liquorice, and dried dark fruit. Dry.

Pours dark ruby reddish brown with nice off white head. Sweetish aroma, maybe vanilla and caramel. There are hints of sweetness and it is nicely balanced, but fall a little short in the finish. Very easy drinking Scotch Ale.

A wee bit more colour, but very nice on the palate. Definitely going in my beer fridge.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with minimal head. Strong malt odor and taste, darker than I thought it would be and close to a porter. Heavy mouthfeel, smooth. Pleasant but a bit heavier than I imagined would have again.

Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Dark brown colour. Vanilla, scotch, smoke aromas. Taste is vanilla, brown sugar, scotch and some smoke, but it wasn't very full. Good start, but could have gone further. Good if you like a less intense scotch ale, I guess.
