pours dark brown with tan head and nice lacing. nose is like that of a dark, dry scotch ale: mostly butterscotch/toffee with some dark fruits and coffee too. flavor starts fairly sweet with dark fruits and toffee, but the finish trends toward bitterness with piney hops and bitter coffee; lots of smoky roast notes throughout as well.

Gachupines (1090) - USA - JUL 17, 2015
Brown with a large tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee malt with a touch of chocolate. Flavor is a little sweet up front with coffee and chocolate malt fairly prominent. Hops appear in the finish to brighten it up just a bit. Extremely drinkable. Wife: 4

Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma and taste of light nuts, some roasted malt, toffee and some hints of fruit and hops. The body was medium as was the bitterness.

TH28 (263) - - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle. Appearance: Deep brown, clear, with a thick mousse like khaki head. Aroma: Roasty, molasses, and dark fruit overpower any hop aromas. Taste: Roasted malt and bread crust up front, leading into a strong resinous, grassy, citric hop flavor and bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Finish: Hop bitterness is prominent in the swallow, but quickly disappears leaving a roastiness that lingers. Overall: a very well made beer, that definitely has a cross of ABA and IPA

Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark sweet malts, toffee, hazelnut, caramel and some vanilla. The taste is sweet with some weak hoppy notes. Also some bitter nuts, sweet malts, weak raisin, toffee and coffee.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. A dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a dark beige head. Its roasted and lightly piney on the nose, some coffee and a touch of the alcohol. Roasted malts, coffee notes, some brown sugar and a good dash of piney, resiny hops and bitterness. Full body, soft carbonation and semi-dry on the palate. Lasting roasted finish with a fine bitterness. A quite wonderful amalgation of beer styles. Id say IPA and brown ale, even though the brewery says scotch, IPA and APA. 150621

Sampler at Mondial de la Biere in Montreal. Brown body with small beige head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar, chocolate, molasses, dark berries. Taste of roasted malts, moderate amount of hops, herbs, medicinal notes. Lovely.
