4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, pours murky, dirty brown with moderate off-white head. Nose is sweet-ish caramel malts, hint of smoke, dark, rich toffee. Slight brine to the taste, with a bit of chocolate blending with the roasted malts. Exceptionally creamy mouthfeel, long finish. Crazy flavor for how mild this is. Outstanding.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
