Emeister84 (860) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Aromas of cherries and toffee. Hazy amber, with off-white head, great retention. Tastes are savory, with soy flavors, dry caramelized malts, earthy, bitter hops, and subtle smoke. Medium body, sticky, creamy, full carbonation, and finishes with rich nutty flavors and hop bitterness, a little metallic in the aftertaste. Less robust and malty and more hoppy than I’m used to in a scotch ale.

gyllenbock (4397) - 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 (910) - 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 (1315) - 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 (327) - - 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 (2463) - 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 (14290) - 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.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
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.

VictorStr (1200) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2014
Inte min favorit typ. Hel del sötma, viss om än lite rökighet. Högt fint skum som försvinner snabbt, aningen spretig i smaken. OK kropp
