(Bottle 25 cl) Pitch black, brownish head. Typical roasted, licorice like-notes. Caramel, dried fruits - all the good, heavy solid flavours. And a strong alcohol in the finish. Potent and pleasuring. 221297 thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2005
Deep red/brown color with a thin white head. A bit of peated malt is apparent in the early taste. Yeasty, fruity hints open up on the tongue. mild bitterness in the finish. Not much hop flavor. Warming alcohol finish.

Brown and red. No head. Slightly alcoholic and artificial finish. Matellic flavour with notes of caramel. Something is wrong! Crockett (1117) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2005
Pours bright cloudy red with a huge tanned bubbly foam head. Citric sour and tart. Buttery brown sugar in the nose. More of the same in the flavour. Similar to a flemish sour. Woody, some chocolate malts, brown bread. Vineous. lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a dark reddish brown with a huge tan head with heavy sustained lacing. Very very good looking beer. Big sweet malt aromas. Smells thick and malty as hell.
Tastes of strong caramel. Oak flavors like you would taste in aged port. Very nutty with a molasses finish. Big, full-bodied beer. Very nice Scotch ale.

ZBF 2005. Pours a dark amber. Aroma is malty and sweet. Taste is fruity and malty. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2005
Not a bad Scotch ale, hazy light brown in color with a sudsy, retained tan head. The aroma is malty as should be, although there seems to be an odd rustiness to it. The flavor is rich and slightly sweet with caramel tastes, and has a snappy-but-mild bitter finish. The serious ABV is well hidden until it hits the belly. Nice & warm.
