dorain (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2017
Aus der Flasche im 2017-11 getrunken. Dieses schwarzrote Ale spielt mit seiner Harmonie aus Malzigkeit, leichten Hopfennoten und ein Hauch Backpflaumen. Wow das Zeug ist echt lecker!

artyom (1171) - Osijek, CROATIA - NOV 4, 2017
0.33l bottle. Deep ruby color with tanned head. Aroma is caramel, candy, toffees and dried fruits, mostly plums and raisins. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Medium to full body, dry finish. Overall it's very good beer.

3.6
luttonm (6737) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Thick cap on a dark, coppery brown heavy nose, deeply caramelized sugar and a hint of peaty smoke. Similar sip, with a sweet dark caramel around edges. Recalls a doppelbock, but with a warmer finish. Quite sweet, but not cloying. Nice.

jksipa (1018) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear dark copper with a small beige head that is gone almost immediately. Nose is caramel, rost nuts, dark fruit, hints of wood and some molasses. Medium- molasses sweetness with a light cherry tartness and some light minerals in the finish. Mouth is medium and slick with soft carbonation 7/3/8-/3+/14

3.2
mmmeinike (302) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2017

3.8
Subliminal64 (219) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2017
Where Purchased: 347ml bottle part of a winter mixer pack from LCBO Consumed: from a chalice Aroma: sweet and malty with a medium yeast smell Appearance : filtered dark ruby brown with lots of head that disappears immediately. No lacing. Taste: very sweet and malty. No hops to been seen. Palate : medium body. Very sweet aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: It was very sweet. Malts are present, but the sweetness overules. Also, the alcohol hits like a freight train (even though its on;y 7.4% ABV). I was glad to try and would buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Неплохой Шотландский эль. Чувствуется вкус карамели. Пиво достаточно карбонизированно . К ужину стоит попробовать.

From a bottle. Pours dark amber/red with a thin, tan head. Tastes like bready and caramel malt, nutty, dark fruits, faint woodiness, some booze, and molasses. Medium body and low/medium carbonation.
