Tap. I figured that without coming on here to see other scores first that I had got a fucky pint. Bubblegum, bubblegum in a glass, man did this ever taste like ass. A ruby-orange thin headed waste of time, money and tastebuds was all I got. Watery bubblegum, likely from contaminated lines and not the fault of beer. I was really looking forward to this as I love the style but sadly will not get to try it again for a long time due to location.

Draft at the Luck Lab Beer Hall. Pours reddish amber with a short off-white head. Rich malty aroma. Medum plus body with moderate carbonation. Flavors of smooth roasted caramel and sweet darkish fruits. More sweet than not the finish. A note of honey off and on.

Tap @ Fearless... Poured amber with a white head. Thick, syrupy palate with flavors of malt and grains and very sweet candy flavors. Maybe some ginger in their too. Easy finish and very drinkable.

A very appealing amberish brown, with a generous ring of white foam. A big caramel nose that follows into a sweet bready maltiness, with a frgrant nose that is somewhat floral and delicate, but lingers on the nose along with the flavors on the palate. Very well balanced and sweetly rich, it is just so smooth, I would love to have some more of this.

Had only time for ne pint at Fearless and happily they had a Scotch ale. Dark brown,, almost mahogany ale, small tan head , that ges very fast , leaving good laceing. Very little carbonation present. Very malty aroma, slightly roasty in character.Nice on a cold day. The taste again is on style full of lovelly maltiness, and warming alcohol, the alcohol is detectable but it actually lends something to the beer , rather than detracts. Its not quite as sweet as sme Scotch ales, but still in style. Very nice stuff. Good mouthful, like a good Scotch the mouthfeel is not thick,but nice and smooth. Very good drinkability for one so strong. Wish i had the cash for a Growler.
