Tasted at Fox River Brewpub in Appleton. My favorite beer of choice there. Typical dark Scotch Ale, but very good. Smooth texture. Rather filling. Will order again.

The best of the brews I tried here. Carmel malt aroma, well formed nut carmel malt taste, with a pleasant smooth texture. The one to get if you are having only one at Fox River

Light chestnut color with a smaller off white head. Heavy caramel aromas with a nice backdrop of darker malts with light pine tree hops and some peat. Mild caramel and vanilla flavors. Dry peat in the linger make one think about chewing on a piece of wood, but otherwise quite good.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light mahogony hazy with a white thin sudsy head. Malt vinegar and cherry tart filling, spice and brown sugar in the nose. Similar to a flemish brown ale, not what I expected. Finish isn’t all that pleasant with a fermented vegetable aftertaste.

On tap at the Applton location. Clear dark body, not much head. Dark tootsie roll chocolate malt with lightening caramel sweetness. Not much in the hop department. Milk chocolate comes out in teh malt-forward flavor along with a hint of musky tree bark. Whatever hops are in this beer must be contained within the lingering pepper flavor - they’re hard to pick out. Medium body, low carbonation. A nicely malted but not terrilby interesting beer - good though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep rosy amber in color with a rim of white head around the edges. Nutty and pine aroma, some cardboard and American whisky. Small hints of maple and brown sugar. Creamy and robust - nuts and caramel really come out. Tastes a lot like a sweetened Irish red. Piney backdrop and subtle spicing to give this one character. Well done incorporation of malts. Caramelized pecan finish.

Dark red color with a thin head. Coffeeish aroma with a bit of plum at the end. Apple as well? Grape and jam taste with a moderate malt base. The alcohol comes out towards the finish.

Dark brown color,small off white head that faded quickly but left a ver small amount of lace.Malty caramel aroma lightly roasty with maybe a hint of hops coming through.malty taste with a decent caramel flavor but still a bit thin.The alcohol is mild at best with just a faint hop presence.Yes it is somewhat sweet with a burnt like quality coming through as well.Over all it's pretty good and definately better then the 2 previous brews i've had from them.Well worth trying again and i's have to say that this brew would make a decent summer drinker.Thanks to Joeybgood for sending this brew.
