This beer has been aged since I bought it in February 2011 and opened October 2012. The beer was rather flat when poured with no head. Very light carbonation. Very malty with little to no hop character. Smooth and slight sweetness stands out. Ok overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fraternie (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Smokey roasted aromas, with a smooth body of malty cocoa, caramel and smoke. Creamy, long finish. A great BBQ beer.

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 (5831) - 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 Im not sure it was intended on this one.

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 (4321) - 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.

PhillyCraft (5901) - 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.
