Draft sample. Poured a hazy dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted earthy flavor with a medium earthy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured clear coppery amber with a nice cap of dark beige head. The aroma was sweeter and toasty with light smoke over caramel.. bit of an herbal impression surrounded.. nice balance in here. The flavor was also sweet with caramel and dried toffee at the core.. sweet finish with caramel and some odd pale malts.. just OK. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. again sweet throughout with a long, lightly smoky finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle served in a tulip glass: Slightly murky coppery amber with a small frothy head and good lace. The aroma has some caramel and crystal malt, a hint of smoke, some herbal and grassy hops, and a bit of dusty yeast esters. The taste is rather bland, sweet malt with a bit of apricot and pear, some earthy tones and not much else. There is a slight medicinal and minerally tone as well. The palate is equally bland. While this beer is hardly offensive, it has little going for it. Quite forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewery taproom in Northern Madison. Pours a semi-hazy caramel amber brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a heavy off-white ring and film top. Some sticky lacing which explains how it got its name. Aroma of dry roasted caramel malt, a slight dark grape raisin character with dry leafy hops and some light peat. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of semi-dry caramel malt and some hollow dry hop bitterness and character. Finish is slightly dry, some mild bitterness that lingers around after the finish and then a light peat flavor. I am used to most scotch ales and scottish ales to be peaty and malty. Ale Asylumís version has some dry hop added to make this a memorable beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazed copper color with a moderate off-white head. Light caramel, peat, and hints of sweet cream in the aroma. Flavors follow well with the aroma. There are some mild fruit flavors, with light berries and peaches that add to the caramel and peat. Finish is not real long, but enough malt to make this a very good heavy session brew.

2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep brown with a fairly dark tan head and a tiny bit of lacig on the way down. Nose brigs caramelized malt alot with some brown sugar and a bit of dark fruit. Unpleasantly, there is some diacety present, and it is even more amplified in the taste. Taste is buttery caramel with some sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit light for the style. Drinkability is really affected by the buttery components.
