3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet and very malty with notes of caramel and pumpernickle bread. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of pumpernickle bread combined with a light alcohol tickle on the palate, and also a light note of metal from the alcohol, leading to a bitter finish. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Acquired via trade. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium thin off-white head that has fair retention. Thin and sticky lacing. Strong roasted malt aroma, with touches of caramel and fruit. Pretty full-bodied, and I like the style that blends characteristics of a Scotch Ale and Porter, although to be honest if I didn’t read the label I would have guessed just Scotch Ale. Nice roasty flavor with malt, dark fruit, caramel and a hint of chocolate. The finish is a little smokey and has a nice bitterness. Enjoyable brew.
