3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at Gilgamesh The Campus. Dark copper color. Dark malty aroma. Taste is really intriguing, with subtle nutty roasted notes, sweet dark caramel, and a tinge of fruitiness. Finished really smooth for the alcohol content.

Salem Oregon. Draft. This is good beer. Iím not a fan or scotch ale, or malty beers, but this is a good drink. Much better beer than the IBU and beer family would indicate. I recommend it.

Enjoyed this 1-26-13 from tap @ Ventis: Pretty good beer, solid maltiness, slight metal. Like a beer-scotch blend, butterscotch finish. 8.5 BD; 10 Rod

Tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown. Aroma is malty. Med body. Flavor is sweet roast malt with something that might be smoke. Probably not. Seems to have light hop - maybe floral. Itís not very bitter, and itís lightly sweet.

Nice caramel, malt aromas..some chocolate and resiny hop.
Smooth caramel/chocolate/ toffee tastes..very smooth and so easily drinkable for its strength.

dark chestnut brown body with a light brown head. nose is straight dark malt: plum, caramel, tobacco, light leather and a light dusting of yeast. sweet and chewy but not overbearing or obtrusive, and the acid and carbonation match the texture. my main complain would be the dry-hopping with american hops, which gives it a buzzing bitterness that seem out of place. that said, itís still another solid beer from these guys.

KLCC Microbrew Festival. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head and little lacing. Smell and taste were peat, smoked malt, light smattering of earthy and floral hops. Pretty standard, really.
