3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
There’s a slight sweetness to this one. Very smooth. Slight hoppiness. Copperiness and spice that is very nice.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 ml bottle in Margate, FL. Pours a dark copper with a large, foamy head. Aroma is a sweet rich malt with treacle and sultana characters along with soft bready notes. Not as overbearing as the flavors. Some of the malt remains in a supporting role but it’s overwhelmed by out-of-place spicy hops and a fair bit of booze. Not for my soft Bavarian Palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby color. Little to no head. Just a thin collar.
Nose is soft peat and smoke, oak, raisin, dark cherry, and roasted malt.
Taste makes up for the softness in the nose. Sharp hop bite with dark cherry, raisin, smoke, peat, and bread. Maybe a bit too much booze but workable.
Full on feel. Medium bodied and light medium carbonation. Brilliant base beer for a Barrel.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured a deep amber. Lightly carbonated with practically no head. Fruity fragrance, with a hint of alcohol in the flavour. Fairly bitter finish. The high alcohol content somewhat over powers the flavour. Not a favorite.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle into a Founders pint glass a deep reddish brown with a thick tan head.
Aroma is straight up malty sweetness some slight hops & booze even slighter peat/smoke.
Flavor is sweet caramel malty with a slight hop finish. The breadiness isn’t overwhelming balanced beautifully with dark fruit. Not a huge scotch ale fan but this brew works everytime--solid in every way.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, medium copper color, quick rising red head, spotty remains on glass.
Rich, medium full body, non agressive mouthfeel, with low alcohol heat or acidity, short, weak finish.
Moderate bitterness, malty but not sweet.
Predominantly malty, left me missing the aromatics of American hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nutty brown sugar aroma with some cereal grain. Almost clear chestnut-red under a wispy off-white cover. Cereal grain and rye bitterness with nice nutty accents and a subtle fruitiness. Medium light body, medium carbonation, lingering bitter finish.
