330ml bottle (6.5%) at home on 4 Mar 2018, from Morrisons, Castlehill Road, Ayr: woody, vanilla, whisky aroma, amber, thin short-lived head, woody, malty flavour, little bit of vanilla, oily, woody finish. CloakedDagger (4021) - - DEC 6, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours an almost clear dark amber with a creamy and lacing off-white aroma. Nose is sweet, malty, caramellish buttery with a sweet, woody, vanillaish edge. Rich, sweet, malty body, again heavy on the diacetyl. Very subdued hops. Kinda neat, but all the butter is hard to grasp. 061217 nybol (3372) - DENMARK - NOV 9, 2017

330ml bottle. Clear, chestnut colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, moderately lasting and lacing, off-white to beige head. Fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of red berries, cherry, woody, oaky background, a touch of vanilla, some toffee. Taste is slightly sweet malty, fruity hoppy and dry woody, hints of red berries, cherry, toffee, vanilla, oak; minimally watery for the style, its complexity and abv. Creamy texture, smooth and soft palate. Very nice. Myonlyvice (445) - DENMARK - DEC 27, 2016

Bottle from a local supermarket. Pours quite clear chestnut brown colour with a good sized cream coloured head. Aroma is of sweet and delicate malt whiskey, toffee and bread. Pretty high level of sweetness, light bitterness. Towards heavy body, oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is dry with lasting toffee and whiskey edge. I’m not a whiskey fan but this was actually very good. Swaroga (2222) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
33cl bottle. Red/brown with small head. Aroma isn’t intensive. Yeasty dough, caramel, cooked red fruits, a bit of clove, brown sugar, dried apples and some flowery honey. Creamy mouth feel. The beer is dry on the fruit and dough side. Quite narrow in that matter. Not much bitterness, more of a lingering clove like acidity in the finish. Cooked fruits and spices that are watered down. Voila. I_LUV_BEER (238) - - AUG 7, 2016

330ml bottle from Tesco. Mahogany color. Minimal head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, whisky, oak. Taste is medium sweet with a wooded bitterness. Touch of light spice but unsure of its from the wood or the hops. The ale itself is definitely malt dominated. The aroma has a strong sweetness to It that suggests maybe honey or syrup added post fermentation. Very enjoyable.
