COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich malty flavors of caramelized and toasted grains dominate this robust Scotch ale. A hint of rye adds a crisp, scotch-like, old-world beer character, reminiscent of a simpler life from centuries ago. It’s a wee-bit heavy.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle. This is not what I expected at all. First sign that something was off was the bubblegummy banana yeast in the nose. Had to check the bottle... was this some sort of Belgian-Scottish blend? No. Oops. Through the banana, toasted caramel malt is present in the nose as well as some actual caramel. Flavor is a little sticky, sweet and a tad unbalanced. Tastes syrupy, and not very carbonated... almost more toward a cider than a beer. Finishes with a hint of banana over a very weak bitterness. Is something wrong here? I didn’t taste the 8.2%.
