rotaman14 (18) - Falkensee, Brandenburg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Dark ruby colour, small head. Lots of raisins on the nose, some caramel, overall quite malty. Taste is sweetish, with some hints of pepper. This truly deserves a better rating than it currently has here.

patxa (189) - MEXICO - AUG 30, 2014
This is an acquire taste I think. Beautiful ruby/copper looks, no head, no lace. Aromas of roasted nuts with a great first sip with smokey notes of malts, liquor and spices that later becomes disappointing with the kick of the high alcohol volume that shows both in mouth and palate. Tangy, earthy, long lasting finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Not the best scotch I tasted, but not a bad beer per se unless you take in consideration the brewer classification (barley wine). Then that becomes problematic.

hawthorne00 (2429) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. Copper with an off white head that fades to the rim fast. Toasty aroma with toffee, biscuit and (erm) pear drops. Lowish carbonation, not much body. Sweet toffee and prune juice, hints of spices. Boozy, but not really hot. Empty and dullish, but not terrible and certainly not check-your-eyesight bad.

Bottle 0,33L. Clear, amber colour with small, off-white head. It looks a bit flat. Aroma of herbs, caramel and biscuits. Taste is light sweet at the start with some brown sugar and brandy touch, become moderate bitter in the aftertaste. Alcohol is very present in the taste, like the brewers don’t want to hide it.
