3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a great-looking beer. With a deep, dark brown color and a light brown head that leaves behind some really sexy lacing, it looks thick, with carbonation forming on the sides of the glass, rising slowly to the surface with every movement. It smells malty, but not roasted, not sweet, and not dry - more slightly smoky, reminiscent but not strong of peat. Itís really neat on the palate, with a cool, chocolate-like spiciness with a touch of smoke that persists into the finish. Again, itís not sweet, but the peatiness spices things up really well and keeps it from feeling too cloying. This is a beer thatís full, but light-palated and offers a body thatís supple, but doesnít muddy up your taste buds. All-around, itís a modest, but well-brewed and well-balanced Scotch Ale thatís smooth, easy to drink, and flavorful.

This is an awesome beer. Tastes very sweet, almost like thereís aspartame in it. Not bitter.

Poured up a very dark brown with little head. Smells of chocolate malts. Tastes very thick with chocolate malts and a hint of caramel and hops. This is the first brew from Rahr & Sons that I will be buying again and again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun. Dark ruby red pour (into the closest thing that I had to a "thistle"), a tall tulip. This beer is dark & barely allows any light to pass through. Sweet bready malt aroma, some candied yams, burnt sugar. Delicious and syrupy sweet on the taste buds, faintest bit of hops on the finish. Low carbonation give this a medium body and excellent mouthfeel. 8.5% abv very nicely hidden! A well put together brew!

Dark brown and medium head. Malty sweetness. Dark fruit and little to no hop aroma. Dark fruit flavor as well. Still no hops. Lots of caramel and mid malt characteristics.

Pours from the bottle a nice brown, clear, with red tints. Small cream colored head exudes grassy aromas. Hints of bread and nuts. Lots of carbonation and medium body. Sweet caramel, almonds, and toasted flavors finish sweet as well.

This is a great ale. Dark brown almost black with a malty taste with just enough hops to my liking. The alcohol is a bonus.
