Sweet toffee nose, some nuttiness. Orange-gold with a small tan head. Initial taste is like the nose, sweet caramel, but followed by a pleasant banana yeastiness and some sourness. Very present alcohol, some acidic bite. Quite heavy mouthfeel. Has aspects that alone might be undesirable but together balance each other very well.

Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head that’s gone in a flash. Unassuming aroma of toffee and biscuit. Nearly full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Toffee and biscuit flavor with a lightly acidic element. Finishes tangy and malty. Bottle courtesy of ctipping! Westchesterco (2274) - mclean, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Poured from a bottle it is a cloudy caramel color with a slight head. The aroma is apples and it tastes of some cinnamon with a zing of that which lingers on the palate. Iphonephan (7517) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a reddish amber with a thick ecru head. Fruity nose. Highly carbonated. Flavors of toffee. Smooth, crisp finish. nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2013
bottle from Coffee Grounds. I can say nothing that Terminus’ review doesn’t already say perfectly. Fazit: not bad but not really a scotch ale.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a large beige puffy head that dissipates very slowly and leaves clumpy lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel, toffee, perhaps a touch of cardboard. Flavor is fairly spiced, cinnamon, allspice, caramel. Medium sweet, no real tartness other than a bit of orange zest(?). Medium body, nice mouthfeel, but not really digging the spiciness and slight acidity. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2013

Aftertaste is slight scotch and peat. Dry, high carbonation. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours to a hazy glowing amber mahogany body wih a crea, y whitish head. Aroma is heavy with banana and yeasts. Some toffee. The flavor is extremely yeasty. Banana and sweet crackers like a graham cracker. Medium bodied with a thick velvety texture. Significant carbonation. mnmike (1091) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2013
