Sigmund (7288) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2017
Cask half pint at The Grill, Aberdeen. 6.0% ABV. Dark mahogany colour, large beige head. Malty aroma, notes of caramel. Sweet and malty flavour, caramel and molasses, a hint of herbal hop. A tad too sweet for me.

Brewshed (2) - - MAR 24, 2017 does not count
Draught, Gardeners Arms, Lewes. Dark ruby colour, off white head. Poured with a good head which died quite quickly and little lace work on glass. Sweet with malty start with caramel coming through followed by hops and alcohol finish. Smooth and very drinkable. First one of their beers I have tried but I would definitely have more. Good beer.

corkyrory66 (1856) - BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2017
Scottish ale de 6 % abv, qui se retrouve en old ale sur ratebeer (et il y a un peu plus dun an, elle tait en english strong .. ,jai les preuves!!, et peut-tre lanne prochaine sera-t-elle en traditional ale, ou en scotch ale, voire ventuellement en scottish ale ??). Mais Dieu seul le sait, ou peut-tre le Wolf de Badennoch le sait-il, lui qui est lorigine du nom de la bire!! Notez que moi, personnellement, je me contente des brasseurs, et comme ils sont de Lossiemouth dans le Speyside dEcosse, je me dis quils doivent en connatre un brin!! et comme ils lont classe en scottish ale, pour moi, ce sera une scottish ale ... Elle est faite avec du malt dorge, du bl, des cnes entiers de houblon et .. de leau du Speyside!! Je nai bien sr quun regret, cest que ce ne soit pas du whisky du Speyside!! Couleur noir aux reflets marrons, lopacit trs forte. Mousse brun moyen, crmeuse, stable 3 mm. Armes de malt torrfi, malt choco, chocolat, th de tilleul, candi blanc. 1re bouche souple la trs belle combinaison malt/houblon, et une pointe de fume lgre. Arrire-bouche avec quelques baies noires, une pointe de charbon de bois. 2me la texture superbe, et un ensemble aux nuances magnifiques. Arrire-bouche lharmonie splendide. 3me lquilibre malt/houblon impressionnant, et une pointe de bruyre. Arrire-bouche longue, complexe, fine pointe de genivre. Longueur la grande douceur de leau du Speyside, un malt liss comme le plus beau des kilts, et des houblons en fleurs comme un corso fleuri. Jambes fines, longues. Levure un peu herbeuse, belle ligne. Alcool trs correct, il est progressif, et aide les fines nuances sexprimer. Finale de trs bon aloi. CONCLUSION: une belle scottish le long de la cte du Moray, je la vois bien cheveux aux vents marins .. Le loup de Badennoch na qu bien se tenir ...

JoTheO (190) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle 500ml. Now this is a beer style I like. Deep brown with a whiteish head. Robust taste and aroma of dark chocolate and some sweet raisins (?). Roasted malts finishes the taste, and it gets better by sitting at an inn overlooking a beautiful Scottish landscape :)
