Somehow this one escaped my ratings although this is a mainstay in my fridge. Pours a dark mahogany with medium off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma of perfectly roasted caramel malts, brown sugar, slight citrus hops, dark dried fruits, and a slight nutty character. Flavor matches and comes together very nicely. What a great brew.

Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of malty toffee, earth, fruits, raisins and toffee (yeah twice!). Taste is thick and thoughts go to syrup. Sweet brown sugar, dark bread, christmas fruits, toffee, heavy malts. Awesome!

I am not a huge fan of Scotch so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that I am not a fan of this at all. If you are not a fan of scotch you should totally avoid this.

Probada el Trinity Place Bar, New York. Cerveza oscura, suave. Predominan su sabor a café y especialmente a chocolate.

Aroma of dried fruits, fruits, caramel and some roasted notes. Deer amber with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall a very good Scotch Ale, really rich and deep flavour with some warming alcohol in the back. Enjoyable.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark ruby, yeah ruby. Off white head quickly dissipates, no lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit. Flavor is figs or dates, smoked malt, sweet, moderately spiced, and slightly boozy. Mouthfeel is creamy, full bodied, low carbonation. Another tasty offering from Founders.
