MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Great looking brew! Nice red brown clear color, with a perfect smooth frothy head. Smokey malty aroma. Flavor is just a bit of a letdown, with a smooth smkey sweet malty flavor, but not as nice as the aroma. Decent brew and very enjoyable.

I thought it was oxidized at first but then realized the aroma was just tangy and airy when it was first poured. Maple syrup and fresh whole wheat bready aromas came next. Flavors of the same, along with nuts, slight orange zest and honey. Blotchy, patchy head. Noted some whisky in palate as beer warmed. I would like to try this again. Thanks to matta for helping me with my quest to try as many Scottish ales as possible!

Bottle. Poured an attractive clear reddish brown color with a small off-white head that diminished quickly. Strong malty, smoky aroma with some hints of sour fruit. Flavor is sweet, rich and complex with a touch of hops and a sweet-tart finish. Smooth, full body and creamy carbonation. Though I tend to favor more hoppy beers, I like this one a lot!

I dunno what went wrong, but this beer tasted like a bandage. Heavy metalic flavor and a bad mouth feel. I was sorely dissapointed by this beer as it was awful
