3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a murky dark brown, almost opaque. No head, mild carbonation. Aroma is molassis, floral tones, sweetness. Taste is big molassis, some brown sugar, alcohol. A very light bitter hopping. Caramel sweetness. Finish is alcoholic with just a touch of burnt malt, nice. Body is just a touch too thin for the style. Certainly not a traditional American porter, as the roasted and chocolate malts are subdued. More of a hearty winter ale.

dark brown with very little head; light malty aroma; weak roasted malt flavor; for a fairly high gravity beer it comes across as light and watered down

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with off white head. Cocoa, malty aromas. Malty, wet cardboard, slight cocoa, slight fruity flavors. Meh, not too excited that I picked this one up, but alright.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut brown color with chocolate hints; head of 2 fingers which diminishes quickly; no lace to speak of
Almost nothing on the nose; maybe some faint malts and twig; slight cocoa.
A weird collaboration of cocoa powder, liquid smoke, toasted barley malts, slight bubble gum, and a flavor of antiseptic alcohol. Meh.
The feel is the best part. Creamy, medium bodied, highly carbonated, dry parched w/ cocoa finish.
I really like Scuttlebutt as a PNW brewery. This was easily their weakest offering. I’d pass on it again if I were up in the area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with chocolate and with hints of citrus. Taste is a big dark fruit and malty sweetness with a light citrus and grass hop bitterness. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Overall, a little hoppier than most dunkels, but still suits the style well and I recommend this to others.
