Drjohnrock (426) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Sampler from bottle at 2014 Price Hill Beer Fest, tasted on February 16, 2014. Dark mahogany hue, strong boozy nose, smooth but flavorful bourbon/vanilla/malt flavor. The abv is quite noticeable. Very enjoyable beer.

obguthr (3435) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Mild treacle and currant nose. Clear ruby brown, enormous tan head. I totally misjudged the pour and it overflowed a bit. Medium body, warm. Currant and plum on a malty, cereal base. Well rounded, balanced, and multi-dimensional. More fruity than most scottish/scotch ales, but that isn’t so bad. A couple bombers of this tasty brew will set you right.

burg326 (3236) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color with aromas of nuts, dark pitted fruit, booze, light wood and some earth. Flavors were caramelized dark fruit with some nut dipped in booze,a solid beer overall.

Chudwick (1782) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Tap sample - pours deep amber with no head. Sweet and woody nose. Boozy to say the least. Love it. Almost dry on the finish. Malty.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Government shutdown beer day 2. Draft. Retry much black, brown head. Aroma of chocolate syrup. Taste is whiskey, vanilla, cocoa. Coffee. Very nice.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft sample at Listermann. Pours a cloudy dark brown-amber with a small off-white head that sticks around for a while. Notes of dark fruits (berries, dates, raisins), caramel, brown sugar, candied nuts, and booze. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel that warms the palate. Moderate carbonation. Big, strong Scotch ale.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Draft. Pours an amber with a beige ring of foam. Aroma is peaty and roasty. Tastes toasty and sweet. Nice stuff.

Dal9000 (135) - Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours a deep dark amber with a tall (3 finger) head that stays. Smooth malty butterscotch flavor that lingers on the tongue. The bottle says to pour At 50 degrees into a snifter glass. I've been to Listerman's in Cincinnati and spoken with their beer master about triple digit brand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours dark muddy brown with red hue. Small tan head and no lacing. Aroma of Carmel malts and fruit. Taste is same with molasses and alcohol. Good carbonation, but alittle too syrupy.
