On tap at The Mint in Bethlehem, PA. Dark brown color topped by a brief creamy tan head. Burnt caramel nose hints at smoke. Rick treacle malt flavor. Thick, chewy mouth feel. Notes of licorice, burnt sugar, port, prunes, dark dried fruit and brown bread. Quite decadent and worthy of slow, succulent sips. Wow!‼️
Aus der Flasche am 2016-04 getrunken. Fettes, schön malziges Schottisches Ale. Ein Spiztenbier, doch es hat ein überrascht leichten Charakter doch einem etwas bittern Abgang. Oxytocin (256) - AUSTRIA - MAR 3, 2018

750 ml at home, vintage 2017. Pours a chestnut brown with a beige head. Aroma of honey, dried fruits, figs, butterscotch and milk chocolate. Full oily body with a soft carbonation, a medium sweetness, a light to medium bitterness and some very light booze. Flavor of brown sugar, honey, marzipan, toffee, some smoke and some lightly roasted malt. Finishes with residual sweetness and a light herbal bitterness along with lightly roasted malt. Overall heavy and full but not boozy or cloyingly sweet and thus nicely balanced with a good drinkability.

750 ml bottle, 2017 vintage, shared by PowY, thanks!
Copper-brown body, with a big, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of toffee, dried fruits, cocoa, sherry, chocolate, slight smoke.
Tastes similar, with a bit more smoke.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes moderate roasty, moderate sweet, slightly smokey, a bit toasty, fruity, with toffee, some chocolate.
Very nice. Balanced and really smooth to drink for the ABV. Great mix of sweet, fruity, roasty/toasty notes, with a subtle smoke. Great example of a style, I don't like that much normally.

Very deep brown body with a tan head. Strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark caramel, and dark dried fruits, with some alcohol in the back. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, dark caramel, dark dried fruits, and some liquorice. A vinous mouthfeel but far from being too alcoholic, with a full body, oily texture and quite soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. A brilliant brew.
