2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
tap at the brewery - Pours light amber-brown with an off-white head. It was a very distinct caramel malt aroma. The flavor is caramel malt and some mild, earthy hops. Itís light bodied and overall a little milder than Iíd like in a Scottish ale. Decent.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear nutty reddish brown. Smells like peat and fig with an odd soapy taste of peat and some earthy malts. A little too light bodied, sadly. Left me wanting lots more.

16oz can, purchased somewhere in Zionsville, IN. A nice auburn-brown pour, with a quick fading head in pale chestnut flesh. Aroma comes as a standard English/Scottish brown, nutty, woody and ester infested. Flavors are fine in this vein too. Caramel, toast, mild brown malt. Okay. This is a very drinkable and mildly nuanced brown.

Growler shared by PittBeerGirl (BA)!
Transparent red with a thin beige head that goes quickly. Cola nose with some sugar, light tea, caramel, and fruit. Vanilla-heavy flavor with more caramel, both contrasted by heavy carbonation and the thin body. These characteristics make for an odd experience, one neither rich and satisfying or light and refreshing.

16 ounce can, pours a cola color with a creamy off white head. Has the aroma of caramel, burnt toast, malt, and nuts. Flavor matches the aroma, that has medium carbonation, and a malty finish.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown with reddish tinges to it and a moderate tan head that quickly disappears. Nose is quite malt with some toasty and almost nutty tones. Taste isnít really sweet at all, but has some nice nuttiness to it. OK.

Can. Grainy malt aroma. Clear chestnut with a small off-white head, some nice creamy lacing. As in the nose, the flavor is a heavy gainy malt with a very slight metallic bitter finish. Body on the light side of medium, moderate carbonation.

16 oz. can from a trade with Sean & Amber. Dark copper in color. Nose is faint caramel and a light fruity type note. Flavor was weak nuts and caramel notes. The body of this brew is real thin. Toffee notes seem stronger when the beer was colder. I donít taste hazelnut or chocolate. For the first time in a long while I enjoyed a beer when it was colder rather them warmer. This isnít badÖ. Just boring.
