3.36/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a can glass.

Look: The beer pours out a cola shade of dark brown and settles with a thick khaki head on top that leaves decent foamy lacing in the form of spots and light lines.

Aroma: A fairly good amount of caramel malt sweetness blended with a soft, slightly spiced aroma not unlike cinnamon and light brown sugar.

Taste: Said to be slightly resinous, the Myrica Gale, or bog myrtle added to this beer brings out more of a soft flavor not unlike the aroma ... slightly spicy and herbal with notions of cinnamon and clove on the front, while the finish is indeed more sharp with lemon peel and light citrus adding balance.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light in body, very smooth at 6.5% ABV.

Overall: Difficult to rate a beer when it is a style I’ve never had, but just taking this beer for how it tastes and smells, I like it — it’s very “drinkable” and inoffensive to the palate.

4.23/5  rDev +12.2%

Pours rich cola like with a creamy white head. Fruity on the nose with a faint mustiness. Mouthfeel is warm, medium bodied, and pleasantly creamy. Carbonation is low but sudsy over the tongue. Taste is buttery smooth, mildly sweet, and nutty. There is a warming sensation but taste is less boozy than I'd expect. Spices are present in the front, nutmeg and white pepper. Finishes yeasty with a hint of bergamot. I suspect this is from the addition of ancient herbs. Overall a pleasant experience. I like Scotch ales but this one is uniquely different. Not quite to style but I think that was intended.
