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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Osh Kosh. Filtered amber-brown. Thin oily head. Not that impressive of an offering, sort of a dirty, off-version of a weak Scottish Ale. Watery tobacco toffee, caramel. Some peat, maybe just soapy. OK at best...no hop tones.

Slight smoke. Definitely sweet and malty. The hops didnít add much. A mixed up beer,

On tap at the Oshkosh location. Pours a clear rusty amber with a creamy tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. aroma has notes of sweet bread and sweet grains backed by some caramel. Flavor is sweet with grains, bread and cookies but is a bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown/amber. Faint roasted malts, light smoke, some fruitiness. Fairly rounded toasted and roasted malt presence. A bit of bitterness on the end from roasted malt. Could go a little further on mouthfeel and presence, but okay.

The Dan Journal #340. Tasted 3/28/10. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a bronze brown hue. Spiraling off-white head. Medium bodied with a malty flavor. Musty and earthy. Malt dominant yet faintly hoppy and bitter. Mixes well with the maple sweetness. Bready malts, mildly sticky with a dry finish. Average.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thick creamy light tan head over a hazy cooper color with lots of cascading bubbles. Nose is malt, peat and licorice. Taste is bold, smoky with hints of barley and corn husk with a slight astringency. A sharp hop finish clears the palate. Pairs well with lamb stew or gyros.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, medium brown pour with a mild nose, somewhat earthy and malty, syrupy mouthfeel, not bad especially for the style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
nose of weak malt. color is appropriate but flavor matches the aroma which is lacking in true definition, only bare bones caramel. this is an almost average brown ale but truly cripple scottish ale.
