pours a cloudy orange haze w/ almost no lasting head. caramel aroma. taste is much more bitter than expected. there is a mineral water type bitterness and some bitterness coming from the hops which seems a little too much for a proper scotch ale. a little acidity and very bittersweet (sacharrine) on the tongue. a more pleasant sweetness and more complexity with the peated malt and caramels malts would improve this beer significantly.

Derek881 (945) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a somewhat cloudy deep amber-brown-caramel color with a slightly lighter hue and a good-sized, creamy off-white head that had fairly good retention, and very nice cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of caramel and toffee malts along with some earthy and grainy hops and a touch of spicy and floral notes with some smokey character. Its taste was largely an earthy-grainy bitter blend with some underlying malt, caramel, and toffee sweetness. The beer was fairly creamy with some modest carbonation and a bit of a wetter, watery mouthfeel of average density.

650 ml bottle. Clear copper/amber color with coarse white head. Aroma sweet, herby, flowers, yeast and some perfumy notes. Taste is fairly sweet, malty, caramel, bitter herbs with honey notes. Some alcohol in the finish, with lingering bitter, metallic malty notes.

SperkeleForce (405) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle 65 CL. Pours hazy amber red with long lasting lacing head. First sips are like drinking scotch whisky. Notes of smoked, caramel, roasted, nuts, smooth. Very interesting ale. Reminds me of islay whiskeys.
