deep amber, malt aroma, high malt taste, bitter finish
Words: new recipe
pours with a huge beige head, dark amber,
slightly sweet carmel malt aroma with a touch of earthy hops,
dry malt flavor, good balancing earthy hops,
more of a scottich ale, needs sweetness,
Score: 2.5 to 3.2
crystal clear dark amber, big frothy beige head, streaky lace,
dark caramel malt aroma with a fresh bread character,
rich malt flavor, nice caramel sweetness, light nutty chocolate character, touch of roasted, the sweetness with the chocolate starts to take on a nice milk chocolate quality,
Score: 3.2 to 3.5
chocolate is getting a lot stonger in the flavor along with the nutty character, caramel sweetness is playing a supporting role to bring out more chocolate character,

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy, burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nutty, malty bouquet supplies biscuit, cream soda and toasty, chocolaty notes. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. Although malt-forward, chocolaty and nutty, the flavor is well-balanced. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter.

Bottle. I do believe I got this while in Atlanta last year. An amber/brown pour. Small light tan head. Aroma is very benign with some light nutiness and malts. Flavor has caramel, nuts, and a light finish of floral hops. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to beeryum for this one. Pours a nice deep copper shade with medium white head. Aroma of caramel malt, spices, some hopcit. Tastes malty, with some fruit, brown sugar, hops, and spice. It all doesn’t quite seem to jive on the tongue, but the underlying complexity and quality still comes through. Solid.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005 Dark copper with a frothy light tan head. A smooth very drinkable beer, but it has a slightlty watered down after-taste. Not as much malt in the flavor as the aroma insinuates but has a touch of smoke, and is slightly sweet.
