4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours dark brown with reddish hues when held up to the light, and has a thick foamy tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate aroma makes your mouth water. Ahh those choloate malts taste divine, with a roasted coffee flavor and a soft smoked aftertaste. Finishes smooth and clean. This stuff is awesome. There should be a law that Oskar Blues is the only brewery allowed to can beer. These guys got it down.

Draught at Brewery: Aroma is slightly malty and has licore scent. Poured ruby/brown in color. Small, off-white head diminished. Clear. No lacing. Flavor of roast, malts, hazelnut, coffee, and nutty. Moderate sweet. Not bitter. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Short finish. Overall, decent for a Scotch Ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 Oz Can-Trade w/after4ever-Poured a dark ruby red w/a huge tan foamy head-probibly ’cause I couldn’t tell you the last time I tried to pour a CAN of beer into a glass!! Roasted, Malty, nutty flavor. Smooth taste of caramel, honey & malt. Has a long, somewhat smokey finish. Thought this was just kind of a gimmick when I saw it, but it’s a very good beer-good example of a scotch ale. You don’t really taste the alcohol, very smooth! Probibly even better on tap! Thanks for this one Tom!!!

12 oz can. Dark brown pour. Nice malty aroma that is sweet and smokey. Flavors of sweet malt, smoke, caramel, and some grains and wood. This is very good for being a canned beer. Interesting

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2007 Glossy black, in the sense that it is particle free and does not pass any light. This is a beautiful beer with a thick tan head. Problem is, it’s smoky, like a piece of salmon or a handful of smoked nuts. Not a fan of the taste, but she is a looker. $1.80/12oz

Very deceptive for a beer in a can. Dark brown color. Malty sweet beer with some caramel and chocholate. Great beer to bring to places that do not accept glass.
