3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I really like the color of this beer. It’s a nice pretty almost red color. The smell seemed oaky... or something. It seemed like it was 50 years old or something. It tasted like it too. It tastes like a deep old beer. With an alcoholic aftertaste. Overall, I liked this beer as it has a drinkable quality, nice good flavor.

Tasted at Craftissimo. Quite light and drinkable for a scotch ale. Malt, dried fruit, slight oak. Very smooth palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very earthy beer. A bit spicy. Nutty malts almost woody as if from a cask. Although I simply picked it up at BevMo. Poured transparent brown. Recommended. She is different.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly black beer with some fine laces.
The aroma is of aged port or madeira with hints of wood, alcohol and roasted malt.
The port goes again in the taste, but malt, dried fruits, roasted grains and cinnamon makes it entry here. Nice bitter end.
A very nice beer with complexity and many layers to be explored.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep mahogany color with a quickly dissipating head. Red wine nose. Very dry, with an almond, slightly amaretto flavor. Overall, a bit bland and flat, but better than average.

Probably not only I'd have again real soon, but still glad I tried it. Deep brown color with a wispy head. Attrative overtones of smoke on the nose and palate. Thick mouthfeel with a sour start and a bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cl, Harrods London. Great tasting beer, with a strong hit. Quite a medium thin drinking but with an oakey aspect.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with an small tan head. Aroma of fruit and malt. Full, rich malty flavors. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Very enjoyable, but a bit overpriced.
