A traditional scotch ale, caramel and malt sweetness dominates the palate. A full bodied ale that’s higher in alcohol content than most, making it a great after dinner sipper, but definitely not for the mild at heart.

tfontana (366) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Keg pour at Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is strong, dominant caramel with some fruit and cereal malt. Appearance is dark brown (like root beer) with mild sparkle. Taste is quite sweet, but not overly so. Palate is medium bodied, average carbonation, has liquor in the finish. Overall, this is exactly as advertised with caramel and malt sweetness dominating. Definitely more of a dessert beer or specialty beer.

Pours dark mahogany into a tulip. Sickly head recedes to hug rim. Sweet caramel and dark pit fruit aromas. Medium bodied with sweet roasted nuts and hot caramel front to back. Mild bitter and sour earthy finish.

malrubius (2317) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle from Un Dun. Dark garnet reddish brown with lasting ring head and lace. Woody earthy herbal boozy aroma. Sweet mildly toasted caramel ripe cherries and nuts with herbal boozy long finish. Full body. Soft mouthfeel. Very good. I was in a hurry. Gotta let it warm up a bit.

From the 650 ml bottle. Milly’s/Stark Brewing has recently started bottling some of its regular brews like this one. The pour is dark reddish-brown with a short lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet vibrant malt and molasses. Medium body. The taste is a powerful barley malt flavor with a lasting bitter bite.

Draft at the source. Clear amber brown color, medium white head. Aroma of boozy molasses. Taste is sweet shoo fly pie.

BVery (8911) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Tap at Milly’s in Manchester, NH. Really nice brew - sweet caramel and fruit, and some alcohol heat to make it interesting. I enjoyed this one - probably the best one I tried this evening.

AirForceHops (5230) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Draft from brewpub. Deep amber color in the pint. Great retention. Nose is a nice malt and sugar. Excellent flavors of caramel, candy sugar and some fruity German hops. This really is worth a try if you are in this part of NH. The hops balance the sweetness. I don’t taste the ABV at all. Very nice blend. Peter does a great job with this style. Well done!

Lubiere (11917) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2010
A dark clear reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light molasses and maple, some light dark fruits. In mouth, maple extract, woody notes, molasses, a bit of alcohol warmth, not bad, but more like a dunkelbock, with all these fruity esters. On tap at the brewpub, April 5, 2010.

Growler shared with oteyj. Pours a dark but clear brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma is greatly hindered due to me being sick, but seems sweet and fruity. Flavor is also sweet, but with some bitter malt. Palate is OK, but nothing too special. Tasty, but not amazing.

Growler shared with crafycarl21. Pours a beautiful ruby brown with smallish head. Aroma reminds me of cherry jello. Lots of fruity sweet malt. I’ve never smelled anything like it, and don’t really know what to make of it. Flavor is much more robust- lots of sweet malt and roast which finishes with a hint of malt bitterness. Very unique and somewhat appealing.
