A - Pours a murky brown with a bit of mahogany around the edges and a finger of thick frothy tan-brown head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet toasted caramel and toffee malts with some raisin and dark fruits with a bit of yeast and booze. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet toasted caramel and toffee malts with some plum, raisin, and other dark fruit sweetness. Through the middle, some yeast flavor comes through with some caramelized flavor. The finish is a mix of caramelized malts, with some dark fruit and yeast flavor, and a bit of booze. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch syrupy with a warming and sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice scotch ale. Good rich and bold malt profile with good body and balance.

Huhzubendah (3481) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Dan. The beer is a dark, chestnut brown hue with an inch of dense, beige head that leaves a nice sheet of lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings a light smokiness, toffee, malt, dark fruits. Some raisin notes in the flavor with hints of chocolate. Smoky notes balance the sweetness from dark fruit and chocolate. Medium bodied. Lingering aftertaste of sweet malt and dark fruits. A bit sweet to drink more than a snifter. A great beer for sharing with a few folks. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-06-2011

Purchased on a recent visit to CCB in Tampa. Dunedin in a small town on the west coast of Florida that takes its Scottish ancestry pretty serious and of course it makes sense for two Florida breweries to collaborate. Iím not a huge fan of Scottish-Style Ales to begin with, but the extra ABV does give the beer some much need complexity As a one-off, this beer is a malty delight, but it could have been better if it was a little more balanced. The extra alcohol does make it a little too sweet, but a nice take on a Scotch Ale.

The aroma is sweet and papery with dark fruit, brown sugar, and alcohol. The appearance is dark brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall itís got a nice aroma but not digging the taste.

[bottle at Danish Invasion tasting with cgarviuk and fonefan--thanks, fellas!] Sourish, phenolic, spicy and Belgian yeasty aroma that is complex. Clear red-black under a tawny, thick ring. Sour and sugary flavour that ends fairly dry. Spicy, with a decent bitterness and a faint diacetyl note.
