   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Sleuthdogg (31) - Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Appearance: Sláinte pours a dark brown with some blood red at the edges, especially when held to the light. It had an awesome three fingers worth of head that is khaki brown and is retained a fairly long time before it settles to a film on the beer. Lacing is light to moderate and carbonation does seem evident. Smell: Upfront I smell a sweet malty beer. I am getting toasted bread, caramel and some smoke in there, too. Taste: A bready toasted note with a sweet malty taste is the prominent flavors here. I’m also getting molasses and a brown sugar mixed with a finish of smoke and a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel: Creamy feel to this one. It does go down easy and has a nice amount of carbonation that seems to help cut some of the sweetness. There is no note of the alcohol. Overall: Not my favorite style I must admit but this one is enjoyable if you’re in the mood for a rich, sweet, malty beer.

Pour on tap at craft kitchen, dark brownish red pour with tan head, aroma brought caramel, toffee, muted spice, some earth into a bit of grass. Taste is muddled, but some caramel, toffee, slight dark fruit into a bit of grass and herbal notes, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

Bottle. Poured a thick white head, dark brown and opaque liquid. Good aroma, but taste was a bit a bit sour. A little syrupy, not unpleasant, but the aftertaste was not good at all.

Not much aroma, which isn't necessarily bad. It least it didn't smell horrible! Excellent taste and mouthfeel. Beautiful dark coffee color with a nice tan/brown head.

Picked up a bottle in a mix six in WI. Average beer - light on complexity and nothing noteworthy to remember after finishing the bottle.

rondphoto (2467) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2014
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Opaque dark brown color, 2" tan head that slowly drops, bubbly curtain of lace. Taste is rich roasted caramel malt that stays true to itself, the flavor intensifying as it moves through the palate to a lightly bittered finish with the malt lingering for a long time. Really big and fantastic for 5.2%, a terrificly executed brew.

Reddish, rusty scotch ale with lots of malt, sharp yeast and hops. Some bitterness in fine tuned balance with the roasted chocolate malt.
