Poured from a bottle received from unclemike. Pours a darker amber color with a beige head of foam. The aroma is roasty with a heavy malt influence. Taste has some caramel aspects on top of a peaty, Scottish ale type of persona. Interesting and hearty beer.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 12oz bottle for this rating poured into a Chimay goblet glass. However, I have had his many times in my Kansas life. Bored at a party right now and decided to rate it. For what it is it’s good beer. A slightly sweeter and hoppy and roasty. Despite the roast I always considered this an English style beer and not an Altbier. Its drinkable, flavor, and not particular to any style if you ask me.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2012 Pours dark copper with good head and lacing. Smell is a nice blend of caramel, toffee, and a bit of roasty cocoa. Taste has some nice tangy malts and breadiness. Aftertaste is a bit of bitter hops that fade after a minute or two. Pleasantly surprised by this one - solid brew.
