3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brown color with ruby highlights and a thick offwhite head. Subtle aroma of fruits (green raisin?), caramel, spices and yeast. Flavor of roasted malt, fruits, caramel and yeast. Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. It’s ok but I had higher expectations so it feels like a letdown.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is vinous and fruity with pitted dried fruits. Subtle smokiness as well as a small sweet aroma. Mild musty cobwebs. Garnet amber color thats slightly cloudy with a nice foams light tan head with decent staying power. Dry dry dry. Bitter to start turning moderately smokey with a weird sweet/cobweb/funkiness to finish. Finishes thin and dry. This is way too funky for my liking. Needs more of the smoke notes and an oilier body to be a decent scotch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very malty and sweet, brown sugar and yeast with notes of dark, ripe fruit. Flavor is also sweet - almost syrupy - hints of maple add to this perception, but it’s balanced a bit by a noticible yet mild hoppiness. Medium to full body and gentle, creamy carbonation. Very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good - probably the 1st Belgian version of a Scotch beer that I’ve had. The 8% alcohol was slightly evident in the background, but not overpowering. Very nice deep ruby-red/amber color.
