super dark and rich dark malty, bubble-gum aromas. some smoke too. lots of malt with light bitterness, super-strong presence of toast and butter. quite good, but itís got sort of a ídustyí taste that detracts just a bit. enjoyable.

Damn, now this is what Iím talkiní about! Very rich, malty sweet aromas with carmel and toffee and a little bit of smoke. Great flavors. Silky smooth body and awesome malty goodness. Finishes soft and a little sweet. Damn good. Probably the best scotch ale Iíve had.

pours a dark brown with a fast disipating head. roasty coffee/malt aroma. primarily roast malt taste that has a nice hop side that comes out later in the taste. i just noticed this is 7%, it is very well hidden. this is an enjoyable brew, thanks for the bottles Bunkypop.

Amber brown w/light off white head. Hop nose w/roasted notes and molasses. Heavey weight w/bitter sweet carmel finish. Carmel, pine, molasses, nuts, and cherry. Great beer.

Reddish brown.Hoppy nose.Piney.When you sniif this you can almost sense that you are in a virgin stand of pine trees.Not standing with a virgin in pine trees!!! This is a good beer.No alcohol presence but the piney flavor here isnít so strong that you canít get some malts and yeast.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
Bottle. Dark brown pour. Quickly dissipating tan head. Interesting unique malt/spicy aroma. A little yeasty as well. Heavy, but pleasant malt taste - well balanced - the mouthfeel was surprisingly crisp for such a malt heavy beer. Nice hop kick at the end. I enjoy this style, and this example was one of the best Iíve had.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bottle: Deep, dark ruby red beer with a tiny off-white head. Aroma: Earthy, scotch, peat smoke, caramel, coffee. Flavor: Initiatlly dark roasted, earthy, malt hits the tongue. This is followed by bitter hops, unsweetened chocolate, earth, dirt, roasted malt. Interesting overall bitterness with what I can only describe as an almost overwhelming sweetness swept under the rug the entire time. I couldnít have asked for better carbonation and mouthfeel on this one. Very nice.

HoppyKev (50) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Dark red beer with very little head. Aroma is slight but roasty. Beer seems lighter than expected in terms of mouthfeel. Good roast flavor not as much malt taste as expected. Good beer but, not one of the top scottish style aleís in my book

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Pours deep red with very little, short lasting off-white head. Nose is malt and coffee. Taste is malt, a nice amount of hops, some coffee, some caramel... and a decent smooth finish. Not bad overall.

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2004
Dark amber scotch colour, off-white ring. Very light aroma of earthy hops, single-malt scotch, caramel malt. Light acidity on the palate, earthy, oily, light leafy bitterness. Nothing particular, despite all due respect, this would definitely be rated at least .2 lower if it werenít a 3F. The creamy medium-full mouthfeel and soft carbonation is great though.
