3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle shared by Cuso at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Brown, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of dried fruits, spices, smoke, sweet malts, some bourbon.
Taste quite follows this, with more alcohol presence and more caramel like sweet malts.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes alcoholic, a bit dry, with sour dried fruits, some smoke.
Scotch Ale isn’t my style and this one is no exception. But still a good beer and a nice opportunity, as this seems to be quite limited. Lots of sweet, heavy malts, with boozy, barrel aging notes.

Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a snifter. Thanks to Linick for this one! ABV 10%
Brown coloured beer, with a tall and thick tan head, average retention.Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is very fruity, with red fruits, marmalade, vanilla, whiskey notes, caramel.
Tastes sweet, with lots of red fruits, notable alcohol both tastewise and as a warming feeling, caramel, wood, lots of whiskey notes partially because of the alcohol, some vanilla too.
Full body, creamy and smooth, with good carbonation, offering a bite on the tongue. A bit sticky on the palate.
Overall this was a great beer, very enjoyable.
