3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
