anstei (1458) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 3, 2016
Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club. Surprisingly roasted. Light coffee, a bit of chocolate, some liquorice on the palate. Should be a Scotch Ale here on RB, really not a bitter. Juicy, heavy and nice.

colui72 (746) - HONG KONG - DEC 9, 2015
Clear dark brown, very minimal head. Aroma is slightly sour and malty. Taste is medium sweet, notes of caramel, coffee, malts but well balanced by the hops. Easy drinking and quite tasty winter beer. Not bad at all.

rodabod (3) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2015 does not count
330ml bottle. A nice Scotch ale, but there are better examples like Traquair. Aroma has a very slight lemon-like freshness to it which may be from late addition hops. Colour is a reddish chestnut brown. Taste has a reasonable amount of malt for the ABV, but I would prefer it to be more viscous as some are. Sweetness is about right and the hoppiness too. Maybe this bottle could benefit from a little ageing. Overall quite enjoyable.

Danjo312 (107) - Hamburg, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2015
So gut wie keine Krone, aber schön weiß! Riecht nach Malzbier, schmeckt nach Malzbier, mit extrem viel Weizen. Sehr süß und vollmundig, im Mund ölig und Sirup nicht unähnlich. Extrem gut trinkbar, zwischen 7 und 14 Grad verändert es seinen Geschmack und die Süße. Im Abgang Honig und Karamell, vielleicht ein wenig unraffinierter brauner Zucker. Perfekt als Begleiter zu Rauchwaren oder als Digestif. Tolles Bier! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 330 ml, pours ruby with beige head and remains quite long. Aroma is very fruity with black fruits, grapes and some vanilla and cocoa. Medium to high sweetness with light bitterness in the finish.
