Nice aroma with caramel, coffee, fruit, and spice. More of the same in the flavor, along with a little more booze than I expected. Some hop bitterness and a tiny bit of metallic taste in the finish. This is the first thing I’ve tried from this brewery, and I will try more.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Hazy deep brown with red hues. Dank nose of meaty citrus and pine with toasted malt and light raisin. Flavor is a mix of citrus and grapefruit with toasted malt and caramel. Faint notes of dark fruit. Lingering burnt toast and citrus.

Caytinator (900) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bomber! Pours a beautiful translucent dark copper color, a little hazy, with good lacing. Aroma is sweetbreads, lots of rich malts. Taste is bitter on the nose, then sweet, then bitter again. It’s definitely "bastardized" - I don’t think the scots would know what to do with this much hops! Definitely "fresh" tasting, I can see why so many people like it!

Draft. Ok nose. Just kind of bland toffee and sugar. Not much hop. Really just not that memorable.

bwa5879 (616) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Healthy brown pour with strong red hue and half inch of light brown head. Sweet scent, powdery carmel, spruce and butter. Soft carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, crisp finish that leaves the teeth dry. Flavor of pine and spruce hops, very nutty malt, Carmel too, some rye. Nice scotch ale, not too sweet and fairly complex with nice hop profile.

15 June 2014, tap. Orange/brown/amber. Nose is light toasted malt Nd grassy hops. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Caramel malt and dominant pine hops. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was very anxious to try this one as I am a big fan of the Modern Times Blazing World and this beer was ranked higher amongst ambers. Very let down. Little to no aroma. Mouth feel like a domestic light beer. Tasted like a glorified Newcastle. IMHO not worth even a try.

Caramel, floral, earthy. It’s been a while since I’ve sampled this one. Will make it a point to sample it again ASAP.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Fantastic deep red color with an ivory head. Nose suggests hints of pine and spruce. Opening dances with a strong malty backbone, then the hops creep in and slap you silly. Really nice offering and a great style. --you've been Dubbed.
