leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - NOV 20, 2016
La Claymore versa nel bicchiere di color marrone scuro, molto profondo; genera una quantit piacevole di schiuma, cremosa, color marroncino ma, che si dissipa abbastanza velocemente. Laroma complesso di malto e caramello, dolcezza appena stemperata da note tostate e di nocciola. Al palato non rispecchia esattamente le caratteristiche dello stile, ma non per niente sgradevole: il sapore iniziale profondo di malto e melassa, sostenuto da note di frutta secca. Solo una leggera nota torbata si fa strada tra il caramello e la dolcezza, lalcool (7.7%) non cos evidente, e la birra si beve facilmente; un leggero amaro fa la sua comparsa soltanto nel finale, media la carbonazione.

JorgeLee (1941) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle, Brewdog online. Rich brown colour, off white head. Quite a straightforward rich malty beer with a fairly clean yeast character and not much hop flavour. Drinks easily for 7.7%, smooth. Caramel, malt, golden syrup rather than treacle. Solid.

Nische (2073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2016
Pours dark cola brown with almost no head. Roasted and smokey aroma with caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is similar with some smoke, tar, caramel and dark fruits. A littel bit thin and syrupy.

rondphoto (4286) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 30, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- bottled: Aug 20 2016 --- Aroma of dark roasted malt. Clear very dark ruby brown color, tan head that drops to a thin cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is rich dark roasted malt with a caramel base that moves through medium carbonation to neutral bittering and light smoke. Solid brew that has the misfortune of causing bloating as I drink it. A big gulp tastes so refreshing, and then tries in vain for the relief of a belch. Too bad.

Voodoo (608) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head which disappears quickly......aroma of malt, lactose type sweetness......taste is leathery, sits on the tongue and has a bland taste, then sweetens with a cardboard finish. Not really a fan.
