5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle:   Deep ruby hued amber, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet and sweaty biscuity nose, some sugary fig/date like presense as well.   Strong sweet biscuity start, a touch caramel/toffee, with candied fig/dates.   No real peat, smoke, or campfire.   Very malty, sweet, and biscuity.   Needs more body and something to counteract the strong sweetness.   I will say if this is 8.5%, its well hidden.   Needs more traditional stuff, smoke, peat, charred wood, and campfire.   Can be difficult to finish a bomber by onces self.

MikeJslc (687) - USA - JAN 25, 2013
Amber, clear, off white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malt, some caramel, a little buttery note. Flavor is crystal malt sweet with some grainy dryness in finish, and again a buttery note. A little on the light side for a wee heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head that doesn’t stick around long enough. Big malty nose, showing caramel, biscuit, and shortbread cookies. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Malty mid palate, with caramel and cookies fully present. Long toasty caramel finish.

Bottle shared by shig, poured a dark cloudy orange, aromas of feint smoke, roasted malt, and caramel. Flavors are the same, solid beer that was very sessionable.

SHIG (3453) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle thanks to my friend Jamie: Poured a murky orange brown with a light head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Taste is a mix of caramel/roasted malts, light smoke, hops and very drinkable. The alcohol is well hidden and makes it feel light for a Scotch Ale.
