3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark copper-amber-brown color with soft off-white head. Light smoked aroma and taste. Taste is also malty rich, like a brown ale meet marzen and some smokiness in it.
Notes: Humorously on the wrong tap and quickly corrected, this was going to be the most "hefeweisse-like scoth ale" I’ve ever tried!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy, barely translucent mahogany with a thin pale buff head. Aroma features woody and smoky tones. Flavor delivers caramel, smoky, fruit and fresh malt notes. Body is OK, fizz is good. Don’t let this one get bayou!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Not a pretty beer in my opinion... pours a swampy amber, minimal head. Aroma of spicy caramel, tobacco. Soft on the tongue, rich maltiness, caramel, woodiness, oak, pecan, notes of bourbon and even spearmint. Chocolate came through with warmth. Lingering finish.

I got this in a trade a while back and kind of forgot I had until my wife mistakenly grabbed it and because she thought it was another beer. Anyway, very malty, very rich palate. Lot of caramel and molasses, with maybe the faintest hint of smoke. Pretty good.

Clear deep Amber with a fast fading head. Nice nose with some sweet earthy caramalt and gentle smokiness with a touch of sweet boozy ester, and slight candi sugar notes. Big sweet flavor with berries and candi sugar and a bit of earthy sweet booziness. There’s a slight berry and citrus flavor with some gentle winter mulled spices.
