3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured hazy orange with a short, smoked khaki head. The aroma picked up warm molasses and caramel with peppery warmth and a bit of raw alcohol too.. OK. The flavor found black pepper and a touch of tangy fruit skins upfront, with warm molasses and licorice behind.. spicy and warm with a kiss of smoke on the finish.. tasty. Medium-bodied and just a touch raw with boozage on the palate.. I’ll give ’er another shot.

Enjoyed at a friends house prior to going to 3 Floyd's. Appearance is a moderately cloudy caramel with a very rich slightly off white head. Aroma of ale yeast, a bit of spice, with a touch of caramel and toffee. Taste is crisp like other New Glarus brews, definitely malty with a bit of a roasted flavor. Good stuff, happy to have enjoyed.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a snifter. Literally 0 degrees outside at the moment. Beautiful deep burnt orange. Medium fluffy white head reducing to a small lasting topping. Nicely carbonated. Sticky lace. Aroma is complex to me.. malt, sweetness, maybe toffee, some fermented fruit, spices. Flavor follows nose. Medium body. Creamy and smooth. Noticeable alcohol warming in mouth and belly. Malty then spicy then hop bitter. Clean flavorful finish. Not a model of the style but a delicious well made beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle served in snifter.
Ar: Moderate boozy dried fruits, touch of toffee, and a touch of light smoke.
Ap: Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with almost no head or lacing.
T: Fairly sweet and definitely malt-forward, but not as much so as other Scotch Ales I’ve had. Not as robust as I expected, finish is a bit piney.
P: Moderate to high carbonation for a bigger beer, medium-thick body and a bit sticky.
O: Pretty good beer, but underwhelming for me compared to most other NG Unplugged/Thumbprints.

Bottle. Dark tan pour, a little carbonation and an rich caramel aroma. Flavor is rich caramel, toffee, copper and good and malty all the way through. Not bad for a scotch ale.

12oz to pint. Looks like an amber. Cream color head that dissipates. Very biting carbonation. Good beer but Scotch Ale? I guess if you say so.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber brown with a large frothy off white head that settles to a tight foamy film. Aroma is malty and fruity with hints of roasted nuts. Taste is sweet malt and fruitiness with some peat toffee and burnt caramel and some bitterness. Palate is medium to full with fizzy carbonation and a slick drying finish.
