Unlike it’s degenerate human counterpart, this beer is not to be avoided. Pouring a little cloudy this beer has a beautiful amber, hazelnut color and an off-white, mild head. The aroma is molasses, caramel, coffee and earth... yep a little funky moss in there. The flavor starts off with strong malt and toast but quickly switches over to a lingering, almost campari bitterness. Overall, this beer is one I wouldn’t regret waking up next to... in a barn... covered in hay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 4-18-2011 at JK O’Donnell’s Irish Ale House in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer pours a small smooth ivory head with a lengthy retention, transparent copper body, very little carbonation observed, and a generous amount of lacing. The aroma is toffee, roasted malt and dark fruits. The taste is roasted malt, semi-sweet and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has an enjoyable flavor as it is not abusive in any way. It is worth trying and a beer I would definitely drink again.

Poured from a bottle. Color is an orangey amber with a very thin off white head. Minimal carbonation. Flavors of dark malts, biscuity, slight peat and dark fruits. Very good scotch ale that really is at its best when served at the proper temp.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent deep amberish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty with a bit of roast as well. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

From bottle. Dark copper color. Aroma is malty with notes like coffee. Flavor is caramel and fairly dry. Little to no hoppiness. This beer is understated and gets better toward the bottom of the glass. Delicious. I could drink this every day.
