Poured as promised a garnet color, not much carbonation and absolutely no head. Crisp taste with the malt and hops. A bit thin for me. After taste was OK. Thanks to my Buddy Travelin’ Dave for bringing this back to me!

Drank out of a bottle, 2/25/14. No head whatsoever, virtually flat. Smells of caramel, toffee, and plum, slightly sweet. Pours a dark ruby, slightly hazy when held up to a light. Medium body, sweet with some lingering bitterness.

Pours a nice brown with a thin head that dissipates. Aroma is molasses and malts. Taste is a little flat but there are some hints of molasses and malts. Palate is the same. A little flat but a great finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Whiskey colored pour, no head. Very carmel scent, sweet/sour dark fruits too. Low carbonation, oily mouthfeel , a bit of heat on finish. Very sweet flavor, butterscotch and carmel, dark fruits and raisins and bitter peat. Not my favorite style but a good scorch ale for sure.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to a trade with jdb288! Labeled as 8% abv. Pours a translucent reddish brown with thin lacy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma is boozy smoke and caramel malt, almost a isopropyl alcohol note. Taste is a nice blend of smoke malt and caramel sweetness, just a slight hint of the booze here. Not bad, medium body and carbonation.
