fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Beautiful dark amber color, bright, with creamy head. Inexpressive aroma of roasted malt and toasted nuts. Caramel flavor, and some malt, with some sweetness; the alcohol and bitterness are so high to be disturbing. Annoying, difficult to drink.

joeneugs (3949) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
12 oz bottle. It pours a dark orange/brown color with a small orange head. The aroma is kind of like an imperial amber ale. Fruity, sweet candy, caramel and mild floral hops. The flavor is sweet and very fruity with some mild phenolic funk in the finish. Full bodied and heavy on the palate. The funk in the finish throws this one off as I’m not sure it was intended on this one.

JPDurden24 (1626) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Reddish brown pour with a thin white head. Aromas and taste is very malty, notes of cherry, dark fruit, sugar, and caramel malts. This is a very nice and rich scotch ale. Hope it comes around again.

DialSquare (3248) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2012
12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Murky brown pour with a half inch light tan head. Aroma is big and brown - molasses, dark fruit, sugar, scotch. Tastes are more of the same with caramel, dark bread and some spices. Sweet, but not overly so and covers the alcohol well. Nice little sipper.

pumpkin (28) - Apex, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle date December 2010. Beer pours reddish brown, small head which fades pretty quick, small white lace. smells of raisin, fruity malty and slight caramel , very light carbonation almost flat, taste not to heavy, slight warming and nutty taste. Just ok

PhillyCraft (3782) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pour is plum red/purple. Small head that went away quickly. Aromas and taste is very malty, notes of cherry, raisin, candy sugar, and caramel. Carbonation is moderate. This was a very bready and rich scotch ale. Not on the same level as a Wee Heavy from Alesmith or McChoufe but still a drinkable scotch. Warming in the body. Decent collaboration from Stone, Pizza Port, and Green Flash.

tool2scream (188) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Real good beer. Sadly the nose outdoes the flavor on this one. The nose has this deep, strong, rich, condensed malt aroma... almost like a malt jam. Just incredible, with a hint of bread and smoke. The flavor flattens out a bit, offering you simply nice caramel malts in a standard, but well-done scotch ale style. Nothing fantastic on that front to give it an 8 or a 9.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours a chestnut color some ruby high lights and is quite nearly opaque. A dencent foamy cap with good rentention. Aromas are pretty standard some roasted malts sweet toffee and a light scent of butter or diacetyl. Tastes good with toffee malts in the lead. Some hints of roasted malts and maybe a suggestion of smokiness. The end finishes with a molasses taste and warming alcohol. A medium bodied ale that has a smooth and soft feel. A good beer made nicely to style.

arminjewell (8463) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pour on tap at Muddy Waters, hazy reddish pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of peaty smoke, hints of caramel, toffee, hints of nuts, touch of nuts and earth, slight grass. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, smoke, hints of nuts, touch of toffee, slight sweet fruits, finishing fairly sweet but dries out fairly well. Nice!

QuezXLV (408) - Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Cloudy brown body and thin bubbly head. Oak barrel in the aroma and a big floral. Tastes a little flat, but this could be due to cellaring this too long. Very malty flavor.
