Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 6

Dumped into my glass with the realization that I have to sneak in pounding this back in 15 minutes. Super clear dark brown brew with a fizzy tan head and ample slippery lacing. A gentle swirl recreates a thick cover. The aroma is the expected bag of sweet malts. Great. Now I feel like drinking more beers. This will end drunkidly. Sweet and a bit pungent, the earthy qualities come out quickly, hints of marzipan, dull chocolate, dates, sort of toffeeish (maybe) and some sort of red fruit - probably closer to those swedish berries candy. Pretty tasty stuff - I really thought it would suck balls. A healthy amount of roasted malts, sweet caramel and toffee, an almost non existent bittness, light fruit and a bit of candy sweetness but not much. Probably some berries as well. Mild carbonation and a slight slickness is left over. Under medium bodied it seemed. A good beer indeed.

    Tall can from the Beer Store. Pours a nice big frothy tan head and has a deep dark brown coloured appearance. Thick decent sticky dirty lacing. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of barley and caramel malt, some earthy and resinous hop notes. Flavours are earthy, toasty, lots of caramel malt notes, a bit herbal and grassy. Slick and dry mouthfeel.

    Can that pours a clean copper colour with a frothy light-mocha coloured head, good retention and some foamy lacing. Roasted and caramel malt base in the nose with some hints of maple syrup, coffee, molasses. Fairly sweet aromas, but some hops do come out to calm things down. In the taste, this is exactly what happens. Hops cut the sweetness and adds a little dryness in the finish. Mild dark fruits, good roastiness and light bitterness. Quite an easy-drinking, slightly wee heavy - Scottish Ale.

    Pours barely translucent sepia with a thin light tan head. Aroma delivers caramel, woody and toasted malt notes. Flavor echoes the aroma, though not as sweet. Mouthfeel has thin body but good fizz. Don’t get angry, have a snort.

    Yet another great 750ml beer from Russel. Yum, sweet malts, carmel all over the place, but well balanced bittering. Some candy type stuff, beercronic says marzipan, I like that... Some scotch like stuff super sublte in there, not peat or smoke, instead a bit of salt, light peach and dry grass. I like.

    (added to BP 27 Apr 2010). Poured a clear brown capped with a thin tan head. Aroms was mild (weak?), maybe some malt, but it was not easy to tell. Taste wsa a lot of malt, too sweet to start, but easing off at it progressed; also, there was a hint of "burnt" to go along with the coffee or dark chocolate at the finish. Solid mouth. This got better as the temperature rose. Quite enjoyable on tap, somewhat nicer than the bottled rendition. Less malt, and more balanced flavour, and not as sweet.
