3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, reddish-brown with a thick creamy head. Fruity,woody and smoky aromas-like being in the woods. Flavors of sweet fruits, caramel and Belgian yeasts are clean with just a hint of bitterness. A spiciness reveals itself toward the end. Overall, pretty complex, but more of a Belgian than a Scotch ale.

Pours mahogany in color, decent white head fades to film. Very bready, yeasty aroma, some light fruit in the background. Flavor is very subdued malt with dark fruits and slight spice in the finish. Very dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is nutty and carmel malts. Also hints of raisin. The flavor is earthy and full of malt and dark fruit flavors. It’s very carbonated and has a faint alcohol presence that mixes with great carmel malts.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl Ruby red and almost clear with a foamy head which diminishes to a layer of film. Rich fruity malty aroma permeates the air. Nice yeast aromas blend well with berry like fruit and caramel malt aromas-cherries are present. Not your typical Scotch Ale, more strong Belgian with emphasis on malt yet complex like a good yeasty Belgian style. Lots of lacing and the layer of foam is holding up well. Lively mouthfeel, velvety soft and full. Flavor is excellent! Fruitiness reminds me of Three Philosophers. Slightly sweet, slightly tart, rich malt flavors with yeast adding that nice Belgian character I crave. Overall an excellent brew!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out a nice brown color with a decent white frothy head. The aroma is of yeast and sweet fruit, maybe grapes or cherries. The taste is sweet with some notes of grapes, and some other sweet fruits I couldn’t really put my finger on. Finishes with a slight alcohol flavor. Nice beer

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
25oz - Sweet yeasty aroma with red grapes, cherry, and a touch of vanilla. Pours a huge head with a great thick lacing over a cola looking brown body. Flavor is also sweet and yeasty with carmel malt to smooth it out. Nice spice kick too. Palate is a bit dull and slick. Not bad.
