3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Calumet. Hazy orange-brown. Pronounced smoke aroma. Amber malt tones, slightly watery mouthfeel. Soapy hop balance, some underlying butterscotch tones. OK, kind of awkward.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an amber colour with no head. Again, a slightly watery beer, very light- aroma is of soft subtle oak and perhaps a hint of whiskey, but barely detectable in the taste. Carmel, toffee and green apples in the taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewpub in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a dark coppery amber brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a touch of candi sugar, flowery hops and some toffee. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonation with a good balance of sweet caramel, hop bitterness and alcohol. Finish is where the alcohol come through and I’m guessing around 7.5% abv. The finish aftertaste has a slight mild bitterness that even retains some of the caramel flavor. Though it has a slight bitterness for a Scotch Ale, this is still a pretty decent brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber in color. Sweet, roasted flavor . Nice scotch. Don’t know the abv, but seems a little stronger than most of Bob’s brews. Long-lasting finish with a noticeable hop presence.
