3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 Bottle. Dark amber beer, touch of burgundy. Medium head. A great balanced aroma, toasty, dark bread, vanilla wafers with just the right hop aroma. The taste was a little one dimensional. Some roast or smoke, caramel. Has a malt liquor like taste late. Not a bad beer, but not very memorable.

Bottle. Pours a intense ruby red with big creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet and very malty and lot of dried fritid. Burnt figs and raisins. Port’ish. Taste is toasty nuts and bit portish with rather thin body. Slight dry finish. Bad aftertaste with booze. Think it’s too old or stores bad.

Raisiny brown. Clear. Dense, pale head.
Smells of malt, dried plums, raisins, pepper forest mushrooms.
Tastes burnt, bitter, a bit sourish, metallic.
It’s cooling yet hot and liquor-like.
I like it, the flavour was a surprise.

Bottle from Utobeer. Pours mahogany / reddish colour with thin beige head. Aroma is of liquorice, malts, dark fruits, plum. Taste is caramel, coffee, chocolate, fruits, some alcohol, roast malts too. Overall this is very much like a Belgian style beer. Very nice beer indeed.

Chestnut brown, little head. Aroma of strong malt and caramel, with hint of liquorice and trace of soy sauce. Similar taste, like an earthy cola with a bitter finish. Medium bodied, slightly oily with low carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
BBD June 18. Dark amber pour with a deep dark ruby cast. Exceptional head, lacing and retention. Rich nose of dark fruit and malt - figs, raisins and plums against a rich malt sweetness. The body is heavy medium with a nice slick, almost creamy, texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. While not as intense as Jacobite, it follows the nose as well. The dark fruits flow into a light hop bitterness over a slightly sweet dark malt background. The smooth finish leaves a bit of lingering oak.

Beautiful dark red color, large head that quickly drops, strong malty aroma, roasty flavor, some caramel, very slightly smoky, medium body. I was expecting a little more body and a little less roastiness. Still, this is an excellent Scotch Ale.
