Pours coffee colored with half inch of cream colored foam. Nose has notes of caramel, coffee, malt, oak, and spices. Palate is silky with slight effervescence in the mouth with a strong finish. Taste is pleasant with notes of chocolate, coffee, finishing strong with oaked bourbon. This is a great beer that can appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours amber colored with a bit of a head. Nose is all berries and heavy malts. Some earth. Taste is of sweet toffee, lotta earth, light berry and some peat. Medium to full bodied with alcohol. Finishes heavy and sweet, with earth. Shrug? Could be old, could be the style, or could just be not very good. 11.8

Kind of tastes like puke, sour, and definitely not like any Scotch Ale I’ve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque dark, red brown color with an ample tan head. Smells of lightly spiced honey, some barnyard earthiness. Some light cereal, bready notes. Mainly sweet, but a lingering tinge of almost sourness, bitterness. Alcohol is reasonably present, medium to full bodied with some oiliness. Lighter carbonation. Pretty interesting beer, quite well done.
