daknole (10281) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
Pours an amber/red color. Aroma is malty, some spices, caramel malt and some good fruitiness. Flavor has a touch of hops that melds well with the caramel, spices and bit of dark fruit. Good beer. Goes well with enchilada pie!

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Bottle... Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The nose is malty, beefy and herbal. The flavor is beefy and kinda funky with earthy, peppery notes. Moderately sweet. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. Bland, lightly bitter finish. Well, that was a bit of a disappointment.

Sammy (9553) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
2007 edition thanks to crushinator. Te aroma is consistent with the Scottish style, malty and peaty. It drinks very smooth, even creamy above average mouthfeel. There is lots of lace. It is very drinkable for the style, which is a swallow ata time.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2008
This brew is a mostly clear deep mahogany color with a medium and creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of malt, brown sugar and caramel, plus some soft fruit. The finish is malty with a hint of hops and spice aftertaste. Decent overall.
