simontomlinson (723) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2018
Thick creamy beige head stayed impeccably on a near black still body. Minimal aroma of malt & iron. Medium bodied, tingly on the palate with a sharp back. Creamy malty tastes with grapes, berries & a bitter back of rye, pine & really long bitter finish. Good one

joergen (29800) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2018
Draught at Taphouse. Clear orange colored with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and dried fruits. Fruity flavor of caramel, dried fruits and hops. Hoppy finish.

Desverger (14060) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2017
[email protected] Bar, Copenhagen - very dark brown verging black with a nice off white firm head. Roasted and sweet malty, with some notes of caramel and fudge, dark dried fruit, cocoa, some lightly charred brown sugar, hoppy support, sweet malty finish.

vinivini (3248) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 10, 2017
Straight from bottle. Aroma: sweet, malty, massive caramel, toffee, vinous. Medium body. Rich malty taste. Light to medium sweet. Toast, toffee, minor roast, solid citrusy hopping. Tasty.

ozzatoadisback (228) - ITALY - SEP 9, 2017
Dark brown with reddish hints, medium off-white head, ok retention and some lacing. Soft and not too vivid aroma, displays a mix of caramel and roasted malts with some red fruit notes in the back. Taste is medium to high sweet and medium bitter, kicking off with caramel and roasted malts, maybe toffee, then red fruit notes and a lightly bitter leafy hop finish. Overall perphaps a little less sweet than your usual scotch ale. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, slightly silky. Overall simple and quite enjoyable. Nothing remarkable.

rodsquad (408) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle from JK Fine Foods. Aromas hit big initially with caramel and sugary mincemeat pies. Really lovely. A light charred wood, treacle toffees and a light lemon and lime. Flavours have that sweet treacle toffee balanced beautifully with a light citrus and mild earthiness. The beer feels smooth medium bodied with a little oil. A gentle semi dry sparkle. This beer feels proper. It's smooth sweet and chewy with a little smoke in the air. It's a strong scotch ale that oozes quality.
