3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 750, of which I only managed to drink around 12oz. This beer was a bit of a disappointment, especially coming form Chouffe. Very chalky and dry, only a touch plumminess or complex malts. It seems the belgian yeast wreaked havoc on this one. Rather hard to drink.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from Total Wine. Poured a dark, rawhide brown color and a massive head with decent staying power. Yeasty aroma. Flavors provide subtle caramel notes, soy sauce, generic yeast strain, and molasses in the finish. Medium/high carbonation and medium/full body. This is a Scotch Ale? Good, if forgettable.

Dark brown color with a medium head. Very malty aroma. Dark, sweet malt taste. Lots of nuttiness and some toasted husk flavor. This definitely seemed more like the description on the bottle (brown ale) than a Scotch Ale.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours a dark, yet translucent copper colour with a little bit of noticeable sediment floating around- no problemo however. Plenty of carbonation- nice frothy whip cram like vanilla coloured head. Lacing is decent and is hesitant to disperse. Aroma is like of grapenuts and sort of alcoholy/grainy like notes. Soft toffee and cinnamon. Taste is very light, lighter then i expected in fact. Carmel apples, white chocolate, doughnuts and some roasted java.

Dark ruby brown with a very little white head. Strong caramel aroma with chocolate, coffee, toffee and candi sugar notes coming to mind. Strong chocolate and caramel taste with bready and grainy notes. Quite a potent taste! Long crisp lager finish..

[Bottle] Pours a cloudy brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is basically fruit snacks and other sweet dark fruits. Flavor is a bit artificial. All malt and not much else. A little bit of smokiness in there, but it is quite subtle. Fairly dry.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Fresh, yeasty, musty, wine-like smell. Plum and a touch of barnyard in the aroma. Pours an effervescent, brassy brown. Cloudy but mostly translucent. Short-lasting, fizzy, beige head. Brownie and chocolate candy flavors. Toasted malt finish. Light taste; not very substantive. Light body. Soft, lively, and frothy in the palate. Easy to drink. Does not stand out.
