4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz can. Black-amber color with a thick, frothy head. Big smoky chocolate aroma. Creamy and rich, with a little smoked malt flavor. Deep and full bodied but oh-so-mellow and smooth. Smooth, sugary finish. One of the best Scottish-style American beers out there.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A super awesome "dessert-style" masterpiece from the folks at OskarBlues. Creamy, ultra malty, but plenty of sweetness and the fact it is canned only adds to the coolness factor. One of my favorites!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. Can courtesy of Naka. Pours a dark amber/brown with some light red hues. Nice medium khaki head, foamy and quickly dissipating from about one finger thick, leaving a decently laced glass. Big malt nose, mostly caramel with a slight smoke, and a touch of biscuit. Taste is full of caramel and chocolate, touch of toffee. A rather forward smoky quality permeates throughout, subtle, mixing with a mild to moderate bitter for the style. The end is crisp, but the hop bitterness and smoke lingers slightly on the sides of the tongue. Tasty brew. Would pair well with grilled steak or some beef brisket. k

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. Poured out a deep reddish brown color, with a sticky tan colored head. Aromas are of smoky malts, caramel, some yeasty bread. Flavors are smoky malts, slight caramel, maple syrup. Medium mouthfeel, decent body.
Not too bad, could use less smoke in the malts.

Aroma lacks the complexity of others...this one is all maple and molasses. Amazing blood red body with a thick khaki head that leaves fairly quickly but provides an obvious reminder in the glass. Smoke, brown sugar, and roasted nuts are the backbone to this brew. Creamy, full-flavored, and rich...thumbs-up!!!
