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 (2863) - 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 (16658) - 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.

bottle - Pours dark amber with small suspended yeast particles and a one finger, lasting light tan head. The aroma includes caramel and a touch of dark fruit. It’s sweet with caramel and a nice smoky character. Quite tasty.

Inte min favorit typ. Hel del sötma, viss om än lite rökighet. Högt fint skum som försvinner snabbt, aningen spretig i smaken. OK kropp

Nja, det här var inte helt okej. Smaken är obalanserad och nästan fadd med toner av rostad malt, äpple och olja. Kroppen är helt okej men här är något som jag inte riktigt gillar och som jag inte heller kan sätta fingret på.

JorgeLee (1482) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
Tap in Rattle n Hum. Finally a beer that ratebeer deigns to call a Scotch Ale - nothing in Scotland appears Scottish or even Scotch enough to qualify as a true Sweaty! Deep brown in colour, tiny foam. Sweet aroma, toffee, fudge, slight smell of a mash! Soft malty palate, hints of booze coming through. Just enough bitterness to balance it out. Maybe not my favourite type of beer but well executed.
