Every single beer Iíve had from this brewery has been great. This was no exception. Great balance of hops/malt. Beautiful dark red color. This is what I like in a Scottish ale. Bear Republic canít go wrong.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2002
beautiful deep amber/mahogony. Decent head and lace. Nose of carmel, peaty smokiness, sprucy hops are there but not in the forefront. Thick body, sweet caramelly like malts, peaty twangs, maybe subtle spices lurking about, sappy hops in abundance but kept at bay nicely by the sweetness of the malt. I thought it was gonna be hoppier to be honest. This is good but missing a bright spot, flavors seemed a bit dull/muddled. Maybe its a little to thick? But anyways, its good, hearty, smooth and has a nice kick. Thank you herbjones.

Deep opaque red. Nice little off-white head that stuck around. An excellent ale, very hoppy and dry. Quite woody. As it warms, the malts become a bit more prevalent, with an increasing sweetness and a nice, toasty finish. Get woodiness and a hint of brandy. Palate is glorious, full and soft, just felt wonderful in the mouth.

Deep red color, medium head. Roasted malts, nice mellow hop signature. Some sweetness. Finish is clean and soft. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, some sweetness.

Like a cross betweeen an IPA and a Scotch Ale. The aroma is pure NW citrus hops, while the flavour is more chocolatey, but still has a nice hop bite. I like!!

Big beautiful off-white head atop deep, reddish-brown brew. Lots of maltyness in the nose. Smells of cinnamon and a bit of brownsugar as well. Take a drink. Sugary sweetness that fades to a slight coffee-like bitterness. Has a bit of spicyness upfront as well. Really great beer. does not taste like drinking wood.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JUL 19, 2002
This is one damned tasty brew. Copper hued with a wood fruit nose. Complex flavors that take center stage as the glass warms. Yes, similar to Stones AB but a bit mellower. I do love them both!

When I placed the order for this through Liquid Solutions my intention was to order the Hop Rod Rye Ale. I guess I got my wires crossed, but, on the other hand, I wish all of my mistakes would turn out this great! Claret in color with a rich and creamy head that reduces itself to a thin ring around the glass. Immense toasted malt aroma with traces of fresh baked bread and caramel. Intense roasted coffee flavor (akin to biting into a freshly roasted coffee bean) with hins of bitter chocolate. A long, hoppy and malty finish. Great way to wind out the weekend!
