Bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Dark amber body with an off white creamy head. Nice roasty aroma mixed with dried fruit and light smoke. Associations to beef jerkey, oak and brown sugar. Touch of licorice in the finish. Very interesting beer, this one! Much enjoyed.
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 Pours bright and clear copper, with a medium off-white head, some lacing. Very malty on the nose, with caramel, toffee and light floral hops. Balanced between bitter and sweet, very malty (ale malts, caramel, toffee, biscuit), with some bitter and floral hops. Oily mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Enjoyable ale.

330 ml can with 360 End bought at YATA in YOHO Mall, Yuen Long.
Looks: Clear amber honey colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy off-white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant rich Amber malt, with strong mustiness, strong caramel, toffee, strong meaty roastyness, phenolic, light floral, molasses, strong biscuits, light lemon and light grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet Amber malt, with moderate smoke, soot, Melanoidin, caramel, light red fruits, floral, light molasses, spices, light biscuits, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass.
Body: Medium body. very slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Good Amber maltyness in a fluid, slightly thick background. feels like liquid, low-sweet jelly with right touch of smoke and soots. Caramel and red fruits aren't as intense as other Scotch Ales. Fairly flowery with spices, biscuity with potent lemon to round. Interestingly good!
Hoppiness: Light floral, light lemon and light grass in nose, same in taste but stronger and with spices; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent bitter-sweet Amber malty finish.
After Taste: Dry. Lemony and bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is one of those non-sweet Scotch Ale where the added smokyness is subtle and mostly for taste. Its aroma is rather musty and meaty, with a nice hoppy finish. Not as rich as most sweet bomb Scotch Ales, but overall it's quite dynamic and exciting. Well worth trying!
