Poured from a 35ml can. Pours a cola/chestnut/root beer brown colour. The nose offers notes of sweet cocoa, caramel and roasted nuts. There are rich notes of peat smoke, roasted nuts and sweet malt. This is a big, smooth, complex and easy-drinking brew.

Appearance- Nice dark brown, clear, with nice brown head

Smell- Nice dark malty smell, chocolate

Taste- Chocolate, caramel, coffee, some peaty smokiness

Mouthfeel- Full body, medium carbonation, nice feel

Overall- Excellent brew, not sure how it represents the style, but there isn't too much scotchyness, its a little more stout-like

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark brown with a satisfyingly creamy tan head with high retention and lacing. This beer is very enjoyable to just look at.

Smell: Caramel, malty, molasses, chocolate.

Taste: Caramel sweetness with notes of chocolate and molasses with no detectable alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, a little thick-bodied and rich.

Overall: This is a fantastic beer in almost every way. It's rich mouthfeel and caramel taste profile make it a very satisfying experience, while it remains very drinkable despite the 8.00% ABV.

Pours reddish brown with a thick, creamy, beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is of sweet malts with hints of smokiness. On the palate this thing is a malt bomb. Lots of roasted malt, bread and caramel. Mouthfeel is heavy and slick. It finishes sweet and rich. Very drinkable. Overall, a tasty wee heavy!
