hayduke (4460) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 25, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Brown, small beige head. Good lacing. Nose of mostly chocolate with some peat showing smoke and floral citrus shows up as it warmed. Medium body. Fizzy mouthfeel with alcohol. Flavor is chocolate. Finish malty with a touch of hops. So what is the verdict? Started out slow with mostly chocolate, but as it warmed smoke, peat, and some floral and citrus hops appeared. After warning about 3-4 degrees it was a deceit beer.

A solid scotch ale. Some thickness and sweetness but a good balance. Not really my style but nice nonetheless.

olio (8807) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
65 cl bottle (no label on the bottle).
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Nutty aroma, malty, some grain, faint smoky notes and wood. Flavor is also malty with caramel and sugary sweetness, grain, bread and subtle chocolaty notes. A bit high carbonation, decent.

(22oz. bottle) - Big rocky off-white head, which collapses. Dark reddish body when held up to a light. Malty aroma. Flavors of grain and a bit of light brown sugar. A tad of bitterness on the tail end for balance. Very nice job!

Pours brown with hints of red and a small white head. A complex nose malt, dust and peat. Peat with smoke and just a hint of coffee. Smooth with medium body. Sweet and just a bit salty. Very nice.

dambor (339) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
Pours dar brown with ruby reflexes. Aroma: bread crust dominating, dark malt, some coffee. Taste: the scotch taste unveils itself in the taste (not aroma), dark malt, nice happy palate.

ryecatcher (1265) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Can. Pours a deep ruddy brown, creamy tan head with solid retention. Nose is smoky, malt, iodine (like an Islay Scotch... go figure). Mouth is creamy and mildly sweet up front, nutty, caramel, smoke and some toasted oak. A little thinner and smokier than I like my wee heavy. But not bad.

leaparsons (9552) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Dark red brown with an off white head. Dark toffee with smoke and nutty notes. Tart with funky yeast, not sure if this is intentional. Berries with whisky barrel. Decent but perhaps not in the best condition.
