Rangi (670) - - MAY 18, 2013
Mad brewer scotch ale. Nice pastel brown poor with low carbonation. Head quickly disappears. Nice malt base comes through with just a little bit of funk on first sip. Gives way to a pleasant caramel like flavour to the beer. Alright scotch ale had better mind.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Experienced on tap at the brewpub in a nonic glass. The beer pours the characteristic burnt amber to medium brown color. The nose is a disappointment, giving far to much in the way of roasted/toasted malt, and not nearly enough melonoidin/Munich malt character. The palate is an improvement, but still falls far short of the malt complexity showed by better variants, such as Old Chub or Traquair House.

JaBier (6773) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2009
Sample from 22oz bottle. Pours cloudy red/light brown with a thin beige head. This one has been sitting for a bit. Hella malty aroma that is sort of tart with a bit of hops and cherries. Malty flavor with a ton of strawberry influence and a boozy hop finish.

Beerman6686 (6172) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2009
This poured a dark red to brown color with an off white head. Aroma was roasted, some caramel, and booze. Flavor is sweet, roasted and a small alcohol burn. nothing bad, but nothing stands out.

Tmoney99 (13244) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured a clear dark brown color with a moderate creamy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium toasted malt and scotch aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy smooth texture. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. A smooth complex drinkable brew.
