Pours a murky dark red colour with decent off-white head retaining a thin crown. Touches of sticky lace on there, clear body. Nice colour; otherwise quite good too.

Smells very malty, sweet, sticky. Huge golden syrup aroma with some brown sugar, oatmeal and a touch of rye bread at the back if you pay attention. Seriously, pay attention and stop looking at that squirrel. Ideal scotch ale aroma.

Taste is very malty, but a good belt of booze as well. Lots of golden syrup with pecan nuts and hazelnuts as well. Sweet, but also round and rich with beery, boozey goodness. Very nutty characters and a slight vinous edge as it heads towards the back and finishes with the flavour of lightly caramelised crême brûlée. Fairly full, viscous body but leaves very dry with a bit too much alcohol heat.

Great beer overall, not too heavy or sweet as to be undrinkable. Whether I could throw back more than one at a time is a different question.

On-tap at the Local during their GABS festival, belatedly entering my reviews. It was a big day.

Pours an amber brown colour with some haze. Smooth lacing around the edges around a fine bubbled off-white head.

Nutty chocolate characters on the nose, giving a sweet carob character a fruitcake with treacle. Spice and bite to offset the sweetness. Nice.

More fruitcake on the palate again with a treacle and butterscotch sweetness. A little citric lemon rind bite, and a smooth cooling cantaloupe character. Boozy on the finish. Feel is very smooth.

Great brew, and a standout on the day. Lovely depth and complexity with some really nice flavours.

Dark mahogany colour with a solid light tan head.

Grainy malt aroma with plenty of sweetness and an almost sick character. Not all that pleasant.

Great flavour with a big, sweet nutty malt character. Plenty of caramel and little bits of alcohol.

Medium body with medium carbonation.

This is easy to drink for the ABV. Full of flavour and well crafted. It's a pity about the aroma.
