Danyel (763) - Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark brown with red hues, off-white head. Smells nutty, malty. Tastes like soy sauce, coffee, nuts...not too good.

Bacterial (1555) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2013
A nice scotch ale, all the things you like in your malty ale. Hops are subtle in this beer, as they should be. Quite nice.

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Reddish brown with a thick creamy tan head. Malty sweet aroma. Medium body with lots of malt. Filling finish. This one would probable be more enjoyable if the temperature outside was below 100 degrees.

Kpbutsko (23) - - SEP 9, 2013
Served on tap. Poured a brownish/dark red with white/tan head. Not much aroma. Smacked with a big malty taste initially but lacks a "full" feeling. Can't taste much alcohol. A little light for a scotch ale.. Smooth finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (1216) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Poured no head, only a couple small bubbles on the surface of an opaque dark brown colored body. The aroma is nice. Like fresh baked whole wheat bread. The taste is characteristically sweet with a touch of lemon bitterness. The texture is thin with low carbonation. Drinkable.

notalush (4856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pours a clear dark ruby - fizzy, soda like carbonation out of the bottle, but is fails to kick up a head and looks almost still after a few minutes - sweet and heavy maltiness in the nose, with notes of toffee, christmas pudding - light acidity and a touch of spiciness try to balance - low carbonation, medium to full body - an early acidity makes way for fairly rich malt character - a lot of toffee, plum - lacks the earthy and peaty notes often associated with the style, so not as complex as it could be, but decent (aside from looking pretty unappealing).

Bill Becker (331) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 7, 2013
A- this pours a deep copper-red with a 2 finger head of foam. It looks gorgeous. S- lots of malt in the smell...caramel, some toffee, a bit of a nutty aroma. T- heavy on the toffee, lots of sweetness, huge grain note, light nuttiness. That grain and sweet malt is a bit overpowering. M- Id call it full bodied with the right level of carbonation. O- aptly named brew...Heavy. Too heavy on most counts and not something Id buy/drink again.

EtTuCthulhu (1049) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2013
The color of this beer is a clear reddish dark brown with a large creamy white head that fades to a ring, and the aroma is fairly subtle scent of roasted malts. The taste fuses a mild umami quality with a touch of sourness and slight sweetness, and the palate combines a medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a malty finish.

beertholomeus (790) - California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours a rich brownish red color with off white head. Smokey malt, caramel, wood and sugar aroma. Caramel malt, wood, sugar and smokey flavors. Medium body and low carbonation. Caramel malt finish.
