A 330ml bottle, with a best before date of 28th April 2025. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.

Appearance: Dark brown in colour with a one finger beige head that had decent retention, while leaving some lacing.

Aroma: Light roasted malts, dark fruit, plum, raisins, with notes of nearly burnt caramel.

Taste: Moderately sweet, plum, raisins, light roasted malts, caramel, toffee, brown sugar.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall: Aromas were a little on the weak side, but I thought the flavours worked with a nice light char bitterness that balances the sweetness.

From a bc liquor store in whistler. 330 ml poured into a tulip. Really pretty dark ruby with a couple fingers worth o' heed on it (see what I did there; I can see my Scottish wife rolling her eyes now). You get some of the characteristic smells of toffee, treacle and all that other sweet goodness that a scotch ale ought to have but it's pretty much lost in the booze smell. Way to much for me. Same thing with the taste. It's got some really nice base flavour in there toffee, caramel a barely detectable hint of cereal but it's buried in a cloying boozy sweetness when it hits your palate that overwhelms the subtlety of the flavours. Thankfully there is just enough hop bitterness on the follow through to keep it from being sickly. it does feel great in the mouth though. Full but not heavy...feels like a soft, warm, booze soaked blankie.
I've been to the brewery a couple of times and it's truly unique. Very traditional and super cool. I loved there Jacobite and house ale but this one just tasted way too boozy for me. I've got no problem with a 9% but I need it to be a bit better hidden than this
