4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I drank this immediately after a family funeral and it did the trick; a complex, rich ale with lots of malts, w/stone-fruit overtones and a very long-lasting coriander aftertaste. Yes.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a clear deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aromas of caramel, roasted malts, plum, figs, toffee, pecans and alcohol. Taste of caramel, toffee, coffee, plum, liquorice and molasses, also a little oak and spiciness. Soft carbonation and medium bodied. A long and warming malty, spicy finish. A really lovely complex and drinkable beer, definitely buy this again.

Bottled, serves half-pint perfectly. Short head, quite fizzy to start off. Cola on the nose, then toffee and caramel. Strong palate and sweet aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subdued chestnut and maple syrup nose. Clear brown, medium yellow head. Wood, pecan, and chocolate syrup. Light to medium body. A touch cloying, at least, far sweeter than its lack of complexity can support.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear dark body with a minimal head. Nose has sweet aromas of grapes and sherry. Taste is sweet with cola-like qualities and a mildly bitter finish. Low carbonation and rich palate. Quite nice, reminds a lot of swedish julmust.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a perfect pint. I assume this is the right listing, but this says "ale brewed with coriander and fermented in oak barrels" below the Jacobite Ale text.
3.0 A: Deep brown, nearly black, color. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and not much of any lacing is left.
4.25 S: Might not look great, but it smells great. Coriander hits you right on the first whiff and hits you hard. Earthy peatiness, light roastiness, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, mineral, and some spicy phenols. Very nice, but could use a bit more power.
4.0 T: Like the nose, the coriander is readily apparent. Underneath you find much of what the nose has: earthy peat, light roast, brown sugar, molasses, caramel. Mineral and phenols are upped somewhat in the taste. Though I love the taste of coriander, it does dominate the brew. Whether or not that is a bad thing, I don’t know. But it does prevent a deeper inspection as to how the flavors mesh. Still, damn good.
3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Somewhat slippery feel. Could use some more creaminess, but good enough.
4.0 D: I probably rated this higher than it deserves, but I love coriander so that’s how it is. Worth a try either way though. Solid all around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Very complex aroma, but dificult to define (banana, cola, chocolate...maybe), medium sweetness, medium bitter, dark brow ruby colour almost black, clear, tan foam, medium body, creamy-milkie feel, astringent, bitter finish that comes back...soft carbonation...good beer . And you can feel the coriander in the aroma and in the taste but very integrated.
