COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The colour of burnished copper, strong with a caramely sweetness. A malt driven beer, lightly balanced with our own Goldings and Willamette fresh hop flowers. The grain make up in this beer is a tightly kept secret. It has taken 7 years to perfect and is a very special blend of English Malts, some of which are dark roasted to impart the toffee and sweet flavours of this ale.

Pint off hand-pull @ Brewery, Red Hill, Vic. This looks amazing off the handpull! A inch of white cream eventually settles atop a rich dark honey gold body. Malt driven aroma - dark caramel, brown toffee, toasted nut & honey with a touch of complimentary earth, floral hop. Subdued carbonation gives the body a nice girth & chewy texture. Good malt driven body - toasted nut, caramels, sweet biscuit/cookie, gentle savoury hop bitterness on a smooth finish Top notch scotch ale - a real treat off the old handpull!

330ml bottle from Crafty Brew. Poured a deep chestnut brown with a tall and slowly fading light tan head leaving a slightly soapy lace. Aromas of caramel, toffee, earth, roasted nuts and tangy dark and dried fruits. A little choc and roast too. Similar to taste with more roasted malt presence contributing to the finishing bitterness. A little watery despite its Modest ABV, medium carbonation and a soft to moderate intensity and length finish.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2016
Hand pump (at Keg and Brew). Dark burnt brown with a lightly tanned, frothy head that lasts perfectly. Aroma is of roasted barley with chocolate, toffee, coffee, sultanas, dates and hints of salted liquorice. Flavour is smooth and malty with a light earthy hop bitterness, roasted barley, milk chocolate, toasted nuts, muscatels, raisins and light notes of coffee. Light to medium bodied with very soft carbonation, a watery texture and a good length dry/toasty finish.

Bottle into glass. Biscuity and burnt toast aroma. Smooth feel in the mouth with low carbonation. Very well balance of caramel and toasty flavours that linger long after its consumed.

DavidAust (209) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
Looks good, great dark head and deep red brown colour. Taste, not quite as strong as Id hoped for. Low alcohol (for a scotch ale) might have contributed. Overall OK, but looks better than it tastes. Shame as this brewerys other beers have all been impressive. will go with other brands for my Scotch ales.

This beer is delicious. It pours thin tan lacing, dark copper brown. The aroma is lacking, light roast, might need to let it warm slightly. The taste is great, long bitter malt finish.

330ml bottle into glass. Toffee roast caramel chocolate alcohol on the nose. Dark red colour (prune juice?). HUGE frothy tan head. Looks a bit mad. Tastes sweetish with a subtle clean hop finish. Really well balanced.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2014
Pours a caramel brown with a foamy light brown head that dissipated quickly, but returns on agitation. Sweet caramel dominates the aroma. Brown sugar, toffee and dark fruits. Taste is sweet and almost sticky but not excessively so. Very smooth. Nutty, caramel and dark fruits are the dominant flavours. Medium bitterness to balance the sweet malts. Excellent.
