Bottle a gift from eric s...pours opaque dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has light raisin and figgy notes. Flavor follows suit...some earthy/leathery hoppiness and roastiness...woody. mouthfeel is full and silky with a raisiny/earthy/woody dry finish. Drinks a bit like a dubbel and less peaty than some scotch ales but very tasty.

On tap at the brewpub on November 4, 2010. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a tan head and a few lace rings as it goes down. The nose is really heavy on the malt with a bit of sweetness and a bit of booze. Some dark fruits with figs and dates plus a bit of a red-grape presence. The taste is a bit too boozy, and this permeates the feel is well. The malts are quite strong and its a bit too sweet. Nice dark fruits in the taste as well. Pretty heavy, sweet body with some alcohol. A pretty good sipper that I wouldn’t mind trying again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

Draft @ the brewpub. Brune pour tan head. fruit aroma. Wood ashy oak flavors light fruit. Almost unfinishable, bad batch?

Draft. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan head. Aromatically very sweet fruit esters raisins green ones, and under ripe fruit tones, like crab apples rotting. A light woody scotch note. Very metallic flavor obv and an off one at that. So much metal me or a few others couldn’t finish a pint. The only beer at alchemist i didn’t adore, reading other reviews i have to feel that something went wrong with this batch.

Draft at the brewpub back in Nov 2010: dark brown, frothy tan head, very malty, full bodied, warming burn from the alcohol. Nice.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2010
In short: A rich decadent malt orgy. Very good
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Mahogany body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is very malty to say the least. Taste has rich toffee, rich caramel, some dark fruits, some molasses. The beer is very heavy and rich (this is a very calorific brew) but it didn’t feel sugary too many other similar beers. This was just big, creamy, rich. A pwetty good bee’.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Berries and raisins thrive within this elegant Scotch Ale’s elaborate caramel malt display, sculpting a silky and wealthy example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the dark burgundy, leaving plenty of lacing all around the snifter.
-This is not of those overly sweet Wee Heavies. It is a perfect sipper of a mouthfeel which easily allows subsequent sips.
-Alcohol and earthy hops are both discreet in the finish, but do contribute in making a smashing conclusion to this brew.
-I don’t recall ever having had a malt monster from John, so I admit I didn’t know what to expect. This Wabbit is even more proof this man can do it all. Wow.
