Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours unclear dark chestnut brown with a beige head. The aroma brings sweet barley, malts, and nutty notes, but not much smoke as expected, in the flavor either. The flavor brings sweet nutty malts with some wood notes as well, sweet for sure.

dandeman (508) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
Aroma: Roasted caramel with wood notes and field berries. Roasted sugars are predominant. Appearance: Ruby brown, very clear, with average creamy head and medium lasting. Taste: A sparkling caramel is imposing it’s presence right from the start lift up by a strong alcohol to give this beer a very round texture. In front of the tongue, a long lasting roasted caramel remains through complete process. Finish is soft and sweet. A good scotch ale. All sugar and caramel. Warm, intense and comforting.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Bottle bonused by biere_froide- thanks again, Yannick! Pours a not quite clear mahogany color with a small tan head. Aroma has a surprising amount of berry and apple notes on top of peat, caramel malts, spice, and a woody, earthy note. Flavor of caramel malts, peat, tobacco, brown sugar, and apple. Medium-bodied, with a peaty, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Tone down the overpowering fruit, and there’s something better here. Re-Rate: Crazy that this showed up again, but Italarican shared a bottle at Muckfest - thanks, Anthony! This was better the second time around. Slight upgrade.

robinvboyer (3113) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
Very dark brown pour, small beige head. Huge aroma of toffee, roasted malts, brown sugar and bread pudding. Light bitterness, mouthfeel is soft, and the sugary, bready malts continue till the end, great stuff!

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle at cgarvieuk’s Danish Invasion tasting. Nice vivid dark red pour, very thin head fades to almost nothing. nice rich nose, slightly treacle-y, raisins, big thick fruitiness and a very slight smokey tang. Sweet front with a more pronounced peatiness, again big raisin notes and a definite earthy hop character on the finish. hides alcohol well. Smells awesome, tastes ok.
