This one poured a lighter brown with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel, toast and grass. Falvor was similar, semi sweet and watery, malty with small hop balance.

Mmm, slightly thick and loaded with caramel flavor. Deep red pour without a head and virtually no lacing. The aroma is quite sweet and tempting. The taste is clean and so smooth at 8%. I’m a huge scotch ale fan and this doesn’t disappoint!

Bottle. Clear, copper colored beer with no head. A little syrupy with some sweetness and rusty flavors but good for style overall. Higher alcohol makes it a little warming as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Muddy brown, thinly topped. Slightly malty aroma. But the big, sugary character is a bit of an initial shock. But this settles into a nicely rounded, fully malted beer, easy to drink yet meaty. Well done. (#5356, 12/9/2013)

Keg @ Devils Backbone. The pour’s amber with a modest off-white head. The nose is a bit of spicy nutmeg, pepper. Caramel. Pretty earthy. The taste is similar. Baked apple. Burnt brown sugar. Rich malty profile. Some pumpernickel bread. Mellow, smooth on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Barley nose with caramel highlights, hints of peat and cranberries. Crystal clear copper, thick yellow head, fair retention. Peat and elderberry flavor, evident, but not in your face. Dried leaves are ever present. Boozy, but light to medium body. Wonderful choice for an autumn beer

This is a very nice, smooth, flavorful wee heavy. Easy on the palate. I will drink this one again. I hope they keep it as a regular.
