3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle - Dark red/brown with a light fizzy head that faded to minimal lacing quite quickly. Aroma was sweet - malts and hints of prunes and smoke. Taste was predominately malty with prunes, roasting, and a light hop finish. Mouth was fairly decent. Overall, a fairly decent Scotch.

Good, not great. On the mild end of a scotch ale flavor-wise. Nice color and aroma.

From bottle. Pours a dark red with just a bit of tan head that fades quickly. Aggressive nose with hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Similar flavor, smooth through the middle with a relatively sweet finish. Pretty good.

This is a dark amber brew with a medium off white head. The beer itself has a medium body and is more sweet than hoppy. It gives slight hint of molasses and and cocoa, but otherwise it has a rather vague taste. It isn’t quite bland, but it doesn’t quite excite the palate either.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was a nice caramel-sugar with some earthy malts. The taste was of big caramel malts with a lingering hop and a creamy almost nouget flavor. Very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. The pour is a dark translucent ruby with a decently thick light tan head. The head fades quickly leaving no lace. The aroma is very sweet. It's got a nice malty characteristic and a few touches of caramel. There isn't much else going on. The flavor is also vey sweet. A little less roast than the nose and the maltiness is a little more prevalent. The mouth feel is really thin, and the flavors definitely don't hang around very long

Phoenix bottle. Nice bronze/copper color with a medium tan head that quickly dissolves into a film. Big aroma of burned/caramelized sugar reminiscent of a roasted marshmallow. Flavor of roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Pretty tasty.
