473 ml can bought at Q Club in SoHo, Central.
Looks: Clear, deep copper brown colour; One and a quarter finger head with beige foam which last for 2 minutes; Fair sticky lacing and near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant rich dark malt which can be smelt a feet away, with strong caramel, strong sticky toffee, light floral, molasses, spices, strong dark bread, yeast and light grass.
Taste: Close to strong sweet dark malt, with tartness, soot, light grains, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, light rum, liquorices, floral, molasses, light spices, strong dark bread, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass.
Body: Medium body. Slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good dark maltyness in a thinned but very slick background. Notable tartness and some sootyness, with caramel and toffee followed by light touches of rum booze. Flowery with pleasant medium sweetness. very dry bready with lemon and liquorices to round. Hearty and nice!
Hoppiness: Light floral, spices, and light grass in nose, same in taste but stronger plus lemon; Bitterness - hops and liquorices - is fairly strong for a lasting, medium astringent sweet-bitter dark malty finish.
After Taste: Dry. Very bready and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one boost a very hearty malt character in both aroma and taste, essentially a liquid bread but with the nice, surprising touch of rum booze you most likely find in Imperial Stouts. Simple but well made. Well worth the money!
Can from The Crafty Bottle, Lincoln. Deep ruby cola colour with a thin head. Aroma malty, toffee and cola. Taste malty sweet. Medium body. CurlyJoe (459) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Could almost mistaken it for a cola in appearance, aroma and taste! Brown/black with very little head. Some sweet. biscuit malts in aroma. Toffee scotch taste, quite sweet. Not too much scotch though, not overpowering. Very decent. J_man (1039) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Holy foam-over, Batman!! This thing burst from the bottle when I opened it and foamed up like crazy when I poured it. Sometimes that's a bad sign, but not in this case. Deep, dark brown body with a (wait for it) *very* foamy tan head. Loads of cocoa, molasses and brown sugar in the aroma. More molasses and dark brown sugar in the taste with a bit of dark roast coffee and toasted wood. A bit of smoky wood peaks out after this but not in a campfire way. Some more cocoa powder and a little root beer come later. Finishes with a milk and dark chocolate flavor and a creamy body. Excellent Scotch ale! sebsky (496) - ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2017

473ml can. Pours very dark brown with a small head. Aroma is caramel, toffee and molasses. Taste has toffee and caramel. Some cola. A bit one sided. Fatehunter (2654) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a dark brown body. Aroma is rich caramel, bread and toffee. Taste is deep caramel, a little lemon and brown sugar. Texture is thicker. badhack (590) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Tastes like rich chocolate, dark chocolate, smoke and all are present through a long, smooth finish. Very strong nutty/roasted nut flavor. There is some sweetness, more fruity than sugary. I like the flavor profile quite a bit. Herbal bitter hops to balance, maybe stronger than I would have liked. This reminds me more of an imperial stout than a scotch ale. Dark brown/red, clear, tan head that dissipates. Moderate to thin palate. dwyerpg (6611) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 6, 2016
A solid scotch ale. Some thickness and sweetness but a good balance. Not really my style but nice nonetheless. olio (10816) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
65 cl bottle (no label on the bottle).
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Nutty aroma, malty, some grain, faint smoky notes and wood. Flavor is also malty with caramel and sugary sweetness, grain, bread and subtle chocolaty notes. A bit high carbonation, decent.
