illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Can from C Bass. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet ale esters and caramelly malts. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice amount of caramelly and light chocolate maltiness, with very little bitterness. A tad on the sweet side. Not as good as Oskar Blues Old Chub.

Can from Stfun. Aroma is toffee and alcohol. Reddish dark black cherry cola color. Taste is sweet and malty with some toffee roast and almost a vodka like taste in the finish. Better than i was expecting.

kbutler1 (1375) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Can. Pours a dark reddish managing color which includes some floaters! Dark fruit, peat, and caramel. Loads of caramel in the taste with a slight bitterness. A slight smokiness as well. There is a strange tartness to this that is underlying in the nose and taste that’s those me a little. Overall, not bad. Medium mouthfeel.

FoBAB 11’ Way better than expected. Pours a deep down with off white head. Nose is of Rye, malts, and bourbon. Very well balance and dangerously drinkable.

nwiseman (193) - Norwich, Connecticut, USA - JAN 2, 2012
From can. Pours more brown than ruby with little head. Aroma like a port with raisins, figs, and a nutty aspect. Sweet and boosy, but also smoky and a little spicy. Little carbonation, frothy, and lingering warmth. Pretty good, but seems to be missing something.

The worst $20 I’ve ever spent. Hate to say that because I had expected great things...They must have used a specialty batch at GABF because this shit wouldn’t have been top 20 at the ’fest that I know. Waay too boozy, over priced and lacked sufficient flavor. Tasted like Wee Mac blended with Popov vodka. Palate was thin, watery, and the booze covered up anything until it was way past the palate. The taste (or whatever was left after the burn) was lightly roasted, with some very subtle vanilla and caramel flavors. Very remotely resembled a scotch ale, but I personally feel like the Wee Mac was much closer to the style than this garbage, which sucks to say because that tastes more like a brown ale than anything. Can’t believe they are gouging the customers that made them so big pay this much for something so lackluster. $5 growlers are nice on Fridays, but $20 for this is inexcusable.

50belair (2773) - Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Growler shared by hopscotch. Clear amber pour with a small off white head. Aromas of urine stained carpet. The taste is much better than the nose with rich caramel malt notes. Seems like I’m picking up a hint of green apples.

Pours a lovely mahogany. Nose is malt, some vinous notes, brown sugar. Flavor is up front sweet and mild with a very complex and completely fantastic palate. Chocolate, tons of caramel, bread, dark fruit, and brown sugar. Just shy of being to sweet, this beer is perfect for a malthead like me. A really fantastic stab at a Scotch Ale. Initially I rated this as a 3.8 but I reopened the growler to days later to give this beer a shot on its own without being overshadowed by big imperial stouts. It was a wise decision. This is a fantastic beer. Thanks to Hopscotch for supplying the growler and leaving the remainder at my place.
