Bottle from someone, I think Brandon (santa(notalush)). Thanks! Pours out a dark brown color with a thick tan head. Smell is malty, rich,hoppy, and rich. Taste is similar, with a nice sweetness and huge malt presence. A pretty good scotch ale actually. I love the beers this brewery makes regardless.

This bottled brew was sampled at the RateBeer gathering at Dick’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que. It poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a very hazy brown colored body with no visible carbonation and lots of floating yeast particles. The aroma was mild with sweet malty notes. The mouth feel was tingly and mildly vinous at the start then mellowed in the finish. The flavor contained sweet malty vinous notes.

ABUSEDGOAT (2331) - California, USA - APR 18, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Hazy dark brown body with a smallish head. Aroma was chocolate, sugar, more hops than other Scotch ales I’ve had and loads of caramel. Couldn’t get any smoke notes. Good stuff anyway. 2007 bottle: same color, similar notes but smoke notes are obvious. Better. 7/4/7/4/15

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2006
Hazy dark brown colour. Toasty, smokey aroma with a hint of brown sugar that also reminds me of a toasted coconut doughnut. So it would mix well with a coffee stout, then? Sweet, with rich toffee notes and accents of molasses and wood. I found the sweetness started to get to me by the end of the bomber but it’s a pretty solid beer and if sweet is your thing, do it up.

Sweet toffee nose. Cloudy, dirty brown color that lingers on the palate. Very well balanced.

Sample at Indy tasting Dick’s BBQ 3/31/06 - Aroma of toffee, carmel, roasted malt, and raisin. Pours mud puddle brown with small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is sticky. Pretty tasty stuff.
