3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Earthy, dusty malt and light yeasty aroma. Murky brown with an uber fizzy, gargantuan ginormous beige head. Quite a bit of yeast sediment not an appealing looking beer at all. Caramel malt, toast, and a light grassy bitter flavor. Light, highly carbonated body with a dry finish. Felt very tingly on the tongue. While it didn’t taste bad, it definitely was not like any of the scotch ales I’ve ever tried

12oz bottle - pours slightly murky amber with creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, wood, brown sugar and a little smoke. Flavors adds a little chocolate and floral hops. Mainly sweet with a lingering bitterness. (really digging the new live Skinny Puppy album). Sticky palate. I like this beer, though I wish it were stronger.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours tea-like with a quick off-white head that fades rapidly to a ring and an island.
Scent is mild....toffee....dry hay/grass.
Taste is very subtle..caramel/toffee without excess sweetness...grassy dryness..malt.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Glowing, mostly translucent amber. Nose is super bready, some caramel, pretty much spot on what I smell in many American made scotch ales. Some are smokey, this one is not. Flavor is caramel, light toffee, bread, and an earthy bitterness. Kinda watery palate. Kinda like a scotch ale on training wheels.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite malty and a sweet with caramel, nut, and a hint of cocoa. Smooth finish and full body, though not at all heavy. Very nice.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark amber with an out-of-control head and spotty lace. The taste has sweet caramel malt with an odd overtone of pruney anise.
The finish is hurt by a general lack of any bitterness. Not a very good brew, especially with so many Thirsty Dog winners to drink instead.
