Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma of malts and scotch. Full bodied beer with flavors of scotch, malt raisin. A slightly bitter and almost tangy aftertaste. Not a favorite dark beer of mine, but it’s decent and filling. This beer will definitely fill you up.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Described as oak-aged claymore, pour was dark red with off white head on tap at the brewery for Firkin Friday. Aroma brought notes of smoke, oak, caramel, some burnt toast and earth notes in there as well. Taste was a nice mix of smoke and molasses, hints of oak and slight vanilla, some earth and burnt notes, finishes fairly sweet. Not bad, wish the oak came in a bit more but fairly good.

Amber in color with an off-white head. Malty nose. Pretty straight forward malty beer.

Great aroma of sweet malt and some smoke. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. The flavor is malty sweet with a hint of smoke, some caramel, earth and grass. Very nice crisp and clean.

Pre GABF party 2009. Pours dark brown black with a tan head. Aroma of cherry, funk, and dark malts. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of cherry, plums, dark sugary malts, and raisin with a balancing bitterness. Sour and acidic finish, with some woody notes as well.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 28, 2009
9/25/09 notes: on tap, brewery. A special release, I believe. Poured into a snifter, dark red-black with almost no head. Aroma is a rich array of peat, malt, and vinegary notes. Flavor is full, with cherry and grape skin complementing and playing against the smooth dark chocolate, wood and caramel. Overall, a darker, bolder version of Claymore.

Draft at RateBeer party at GD on Friday of GABF. Nose was oak, toffee, vanilla, and light underlying tartness. dark brown with a mediu beige head. Flavor was lightly funky, slightly tart with some dark fruitiness.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Pours a smokey burgandy, lacey bubbles atop. Nose was quite interesting...malty, smokey, and toffeeish but with underlying sourness and vinious. Malty flavors in the toffee realm with woody sourness, dark grape, with some sweetness...reminscent of dimetab. Not too shabby though, really.
