Flaske. Farven er mørke brun med en let lysbeige skumkrone. Aromaen er sødlig karamel og malt, og set samme er smagen. Kan bestemt anbefales.

New Beer Distributors, NYC on their closing day sale: pours sort of clear at points brown colour with a small beige head. The smell is light smoked malt with hints of sugar. Taste is pretty sweet. The smoked malt adds an interesting touch. It is not, however, extremely complex, that said, it is still pretty drinkable for its larger size. Definitely a Scotch Ale though... always a style I think I won't like, but then enjoy when I actually drink it.

Cloudy brick red color. Sweet aroma and flavor, with dark fruit drenched malts, toffee, leather and a little smoke. Nice to have a good new Wee Heavy - it's been a while.

trapped (3926) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 5, 2018
Draught @ Malt & Mold. Murky reddish brown with small frothy beige head, sweetish caramel-malt aroma, adequate carbonation, medium bitter woodsy taste, thin body, longish sweer woodsy finish. Not bad at all.

Kittenbieer (305) - LYON, FRANCE - MAR 3, 2018
Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres"Saveur bière". Belle robe ambrée sombre surmontée d'un filet de mousse beige assez persistante avec une faible carbonatation. Le nez nous offre des arômes de malts et céréales avec des notes de pruneaux. La bouche amène des saveurs de fruits et d'agrumes(pruneaux,prunes,oranges....) à une bonne amertume et douceur qui restent sur le palais. Un très bon équilibre pour cette bière des wikings!!!Il ne manque plus que la musique......16,5/20.

appiantiqua (305) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 3, 2018
Partagée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre "Saveur bière". Température de début 8 à 9°. Belle robe ambrée sombre surmontée d'un mince et assez persistant filet de mousse beige; faible carbonatation. Nez agréable avec des arômes de malts, céréales(orge) et pruneaux. Le goût offre une large palette de saveurs: houblons,prunes, dattes, agrumes(orange) ainsi qu'un alcool bien intégré et une pointe d'acidité. Le palais marque le retour des céréales, une note de gâteau et une appréciable épaisseur le tout dans un bel équilibre. Une remarquable réalisation Viking: à déguster en écoutant Amon Amarth ... raise your horns!!! 16,5/20

Beers0mniac (160) - Joensuu, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2018
Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of caramel malts and fruits combined with hint of smoke. Taste of bread, malts,roast, hint of licorice. Medium body. Nice

redders1974 (1762) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2018
Cant fault it on looks chestnut with a red hue silky head and lacing. Their is always something cosy and warming about any half decent scotch ale and this is no exception. Good for a winters night.

Tjeerd (700) - GERMANY - FEB 12, 2018
Beetje flauw en bijna laf bier met een rokerige smaak. Prijs-kwaliteit verhouding matig.
