REUNION ‘10— Belgian-Style Scotch Ale. Terrapin Beer Co. and Taco Mac are once again participating in the Reunion: A Beer for Hope fund-raising campaign. The Campaign raises funds to support The Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research in the name of Virginia MacLean who succumbed to the disease in 2007. This year’s beer is a Belgian-Style Scotch Ale – a nod to Virginia’s Scottish heritage. The beer boasts a deep amber color with a rich malt palate and subdued hop notes in the finish. We used an authentic Belgian yeast strain for complexity. The beer will be available in 22oz bottles and will be features on draft at Taco Mac restaurants in Georgia later this summer. ABV: 8.5% OG:1078 30 Units of Bitterness

When I bought this beer at the shop it was the last one an it was two years old at the time. I was a bit skeptical. Fortunately it turned out great. Very smooth beer. Gets more complex as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (from notes) . Pours a deep amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma had sweet caramel malt, dark fruits, floral notes with some yeastiness. The flavor had caramel, lightly toasted malt, dark fruits, and light yeasty notes. A touch thin, not bad, but not great.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours a deep, mystifying (yes, mystifying) amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is peaty chocolate bits with just a hint of cinammon coffee. Flavor is nice blend of slightly-smoked peat and a box of chocolates of all shades, with dark edging slightly edging out the others. Light notes of allspice, cinammon, chalky strawberry, oak, and vanilla round it out. Oily and lingering on the tongue. Great beer.

Bottle @ Ales Unlimited: Owner has some aging in the backroom. Anyway, there’s a sugary plum and caramel nose, which makes it sound like this is a promising brew: However, a gym sock characteristic then comes through. It never really comes back and so this ends up odd to me. Overall, the tart fruitiness along with the Scotch style doesn’t settle well with me. I know I would’ve enjoyed this more without the Belgian yeast. Honestly, you don’t throw in an "authentic" ingredient because of its "complexity."

Bottle pours a darker brown nice head smells and tastes of yeast wood booze fruits like plum raisens caramel. Weird taste lots of berets at first. I like it took a few sips to get used to it. Not bad nice combo first like this I’ve ever had.

Pours a dark amber brown with an off white head and aroma of malt and fruits. Taste is toasty, of malt, fruits, and caramel with a dry finish. Subtle taste for a scotch ale, but not bad
