Nitro can from Bottledog. A beautiful creamy brown thing to behold. Other than that it’s also really decent. Big malts but mellow and rounded. Nice rumour of funky hops somewhere over there. Golden caramel relaxing - not too sweet - and a linger of boozy fruit. Finishing medium dry whilst stroking your thigh. I love this brewer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz can, Deep reddish brown, tan head fades quickly leaving a small ring. Aroma of toffee, caramel, roasted malt. Not as sweet as some beers of this style, very enjoyable. Very creamy, good carbonation, a nice finish. This beer stays with you. I believe I have had 5-6 beers from Oskar Blues, all have been really good. Buy some!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nitro can. Obviously a cool pour and thick creamy aroma blocking head. Deep in the glass a cool thick rich malt scent and all the way down a warm malty style-true awesomeness and taste.

12oz can from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A dark cola coloured pour with a loose beige head that quickly settles; rich whisky-like malt aroma; lots of malt flavour with sweet caramel, some toast and peaty smoke; and a long sweet malty finish. Satisfying.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good, but not an "oh, wow" beer. Pours looking the color of maple syrup, tan head that goes away fairly quickly but does leave enough foam at the edges to lace for awhile. Malty nose is weak but the flavor makes up for lack of aroma. Sweet at first sip, gives way to an almost aged cheese bitterness. Slightly drying at the finish with a little smokiness. Smooth for 8 % ABV but not that complex.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can I add extra points for the single best name in the history of beer? Hints of smoke and Scotch whiskey on the nose. Creamy and warming mouthfeel that shows smoky whisky flavors with caramel malt flavors that quickly turn sweeter on the back of the palate with dark plum notes, lingering with a hint of astringency that muddles the finish just a touch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is roast, caramel, and chocolate, with some smokiness to give a scotch-like character. Flavor is similar, a little sweet. Quite good.
