ClubGonzo (4030) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep copper-hued brown body, small white head. Aroma is caramel, mild smokey tones, raisins, hints of bread and toffee. Taste is burnt sugar, roasted bread, toffee, caramel, mild smokey tones and hints of grains. Medium body and carbonation. Rich and balanced with lots of flavor, I like it.

cheap (4058) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Not sure ow I missed this one. On tap at Hollywood Gardens. Some sweet aroma with a little chocolate in the smell. Quite strong with personality up front. Very little co2. Could be flat. Yes, quite medicinal on the palate. On stylke I guess. Could have afew more manners.

jcr (2210) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, toasted bread, toffee. Some overripe fruit and alcohol also in the nose. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium, watery texture, lively carbonation. Big alcohol finish. Thin body for a Scotch ale of this abv.

gyllenbock (4657) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark amber with a medium head. Sweet with caramel, light roasted malt, some fruit. A bit anonymous to be honest.

@Basunen:ingen större doft. Ek heller någon större smak. Lite lätt malt, annars inget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

jrodooo5 (1019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Good deep copper pour w/ a tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. The aroma is primarily dominated by sweet caramel. The taste is quite different from the aroma. It’s smoky & dry w/ the caramel kind of a soft undertone. A little bit different than the previous scotch’s I’ve had before but still a good beer!

HonusWagner (1391) - Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2014
2 year aged bottle, consumed while watching "The Naked Spur". Sweet toffee malt notes, light peat smoke character, mild bitterness in finish. Somewhat dull and plain, though not bad.

HULK777 (367) - - JUN 10, 2014
Caramelized sugar and alcohol aroma. Dry taste of coffee and dark bread. Hints of smoke in a mild and dry palate, with very moderate fruits/hops aftertaste.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et stort flot skumhoved. Ekstrem maltet duft med en stor maltsmag. Fin øl men lidt ensformig i længden.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
8.2% ABV
Brown color, clean, with compact head. Light aroma, some caramel and an impression of bread. Correct body strength; lean mouthfeel; some caramel flavor and correct bitterness.
Just a boring Imperial Amber Ale. This beer didn’t capture the essence of anything.
