This dark red full bodied malty ale is considerably stronger and relatively low in hop bitterness in order to offset the sweetness of the highly roasted crystal malts. The finish is clean, crisp and dry.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2011
On tap at the brewhouse. Dark cola pour with a dark crimson, garnet, and scarlett hue and small ivory ring that diminished to almost nothing. Surprisingly, bubbles clung tightly to the inside of the glass. Aroma is weak, caramel filled and nothing but dull malt. Flavor is also sticky with some molasses, toffee, and brown sugar. Medium to syrupy mouthfeel and nearly invisible alcohol. Not a terrible effort.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On tap at the AZ Strong Beer Fest, February 2011. Pours clear dark amber with a thin beige head. The nose is roasted malt, dank fruits, light wood and chocolate. The flavor follows suit with the aroma. Medium bodied. OK Scotch.

Deep amber color pour with a foamy head. Aroma of ripe fruit, caramel malt a touch of earthy hop and wood. Flavor is slightly sweet until the hint of hops kicks in at the end. Nice brew.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2010
on tap at lbc on 7/6/10. clear. typical scotch ale colored bronze-y brown with a slightly off white head. aromas of toffee, crystal sweetness, wood and green herbal hops. the flavor is quite malty but not as sweet as most examples of ’scotch’ ale tend to be... along with notes of yeast, wood, toffee, herbaceous hops and a touch of chocolate. the medium body leans on the sticky side before the crisp carbonation clean it up. 6/3/6/3/14/3.2

On draft at the brewpub location. Was informed that these were identical recipes to those at Beaver Street. This brew poured a brown to black color with a thin and quickly dissipating choco-tan colored head. The aroma was chocolate and dark fruits, some musty character. The flavor followed with chocolate and dark fruits (figs and prunes) most prominent, a caramel base also in there. The mouthfeel was a tad on ths ticky side. A big brew, alcohol fairly subtle.
