Dark brown colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have lots of sweet, nutty, caramel malts. mansquito (6437) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2017
From my brother for my wedding gift: pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruitiness, some earthiness, and hoppiness. Taste is sweet but not too sweet. Light bitterness. Booze is present but well covered in a sense. Large body. Gets you a bit crunk. I like it.

Dure à battre dans son genre... Elle me rappelle aussi certains Barleywines. Ça goûte les noix et c’est assez tourbeux. Les malts sont vraiment savoureux. Quelle bonne bière!! BarrelMuse4 (2) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2016 does not count
Probably my favorite Scotch Ale so far.
As soon as you open the bottle, you get the nice and sweet aromas of honey, caramel and a light scent of maple syrup.
The color is of an opaque dark brown, lightly syrupy.
It’s very rond to the palate, even if the alcohol is strong.
The taste is delicious. A mix of salted caramel, nuts, maple syrup and a nice touch of honey.
The MacKroken Flower is a bit heavy, but it’s very enjoyable when the weather is cold.
I highly recommend it.
