Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of kanin1805. Pours a deep reddish amber with a slight haze and a small beige head. Nose has thick molasses, juicy nuts and caramel. Very rich body, a massive maltiness, thick cane sugar but never cloying as such. A touch of spices, but again not overdone. Some warming alcohol. No real traces of smoke. A rich and wholesome beer! 030413 Tmoney99 (15208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt and earthy scotch aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. A smooth complex drinkable brew.

Bottle. Clear brown color. Thin khaki head, little dots of lace. Good big vanilla in the nose, some spice. Medium to bigger body. Light, creamy carbonation. Winter spices, some licorice, black currant, pretty rich. Vanilla. Alcohol warmth in the finish works well with the rest of the flavor. Interesting, tasty beer. Like a winter warmer / wee heavy. b3shine (9333) - Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good for the style; a somewhat opaque dark brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with a touch of toastiness. Good on the palate. Enjoyable.

Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours cola brown with thin beige head. Aroma is dried fruit, some rye bread and a bit of alcohol. Taste is smokey peat, rye bread and just a bit of dried fruits. This is my favorite style, but this one misses the mark just a bit. Not as much sweetness as I prefer in my Scotch Ales. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, molasses, and faint smoke. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and molasses. The finish has some light apple and just a touch of smoke. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. madvike (3308) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours dark brown with a thin ring of tan head. Nose isn’t all that great--it’s malty and lightly sweet with some boozy whisky notes and dark bread. Taste is way better--big and sweet with subtle smoke and peat. Brown sugar and bread on the finish. Not a big body, but nice carbonation. nuplastikk (6630) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2013
500ml courtesy of MrPickles. Big, sweet, chocolate tinged Wee Heavy. Really big on the specialty malts, hard to believe it isn’t barrel aged with all the massive sugary flavor. Has that burnt meat, smoky flavor of a Rauch, but really big a sticky sweet. Meaty, rich. Good beer. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Sweet dark fruit and cola nose. Some vanilla, caramel, chocolate, and a hint of smoke. Maybe some coffee notes. Taste is sweet caramel and dark fruit with a bit of a cola character to it as well. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and very light smoke notes.
