4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 This is a truly remarkable and unusual brew! The name and description entices the palate. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours thick, black and oily. There is absolutely no head at all. The aroma is oaky and lightly malty. Smells like a snifter of scotch. The texture is thick. The brew is rather bitter with a like oaky finish. Very reminiscent of a strong port. Definitely a slow sipping beer - and not one that I would choose to drink often - but I am definitely glad to have tried it.

Pours as the name describes....A bunch of sweetness not as well balanced as the Commercial Description would lead you to believe, but the hop end is evident.

poured true to its name with deep ruby around the edges, with a small light brown head thast didn’t last long. aromasweet dark chocolate, toffee, caramel, roasted malts, oatmeal, and a nice sweetness. flavor was a little disappointed I was hoping that the aroma would carry over into the flavor all flavors were weak, chalky some bitterness

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid dark brown color, strong whiskey, sherry aroma, almost like a chocolate liquoer a noticable sourness that I found disagreeable, mellowed into a smooth malty taste with the continuous whiskey aroma. Would have rated higher except for that off sour taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
What a fun drink! It pours out kinda like old motor oil, deep, thick brown with a slender light brown head. The predominant aroma is a sweet maltiness tempered by mild hopping topped with a smooth whiskey smell. The drink is rich, large with malts, and has a satisfying whiskey finish that helps satisy two drink cravings at the same time. It tastes like it should have a stronger abv than it does, which makes the drink all the more satisfying. You can enjoy a few of these without keeling over.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured dark brown with a brown head which left a lacing on the glass. Malty rich aroma. Taste was malty with a bitter smoky finish, as one would expect with a scottish ale. Good but not something I could have more than one of at a time.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black colored with big lasting beige head. Aroma is rich with roasted smoky malt and sweet chocolate and liquorice, excellent one. Full bodied mouthfeel with some tangy notes, name of beer tells much of it. Sweet roasted flavor with strong lasting chocolate. Somehow dry ending. Very well balanced and dimensional beer.
