3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Liz. Pours dark amber with a slight beige head. Aromas of heavily roasted malt and some floral hop. Full bodied. Flavor is roasted malt, lightly smoky, almost peaty, with floral hop. It’s almost sweet, not too bitter. Somehow it all comes together in an amazing taste treat. Very, very, tasty.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Space Coast Craft Beer Festival 2011… This beer rocks!… Sparkling clear, deep, dirty-orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The bouquet is an opulent melange of caramel and chocolate - nothing overly complex; just intoxicatingly lavish and chocolaty. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and unassuming carbonation. The fantastic malt bill is the highlight for me and is balanced rather nicely by a well-thought-out, flavorful hop bill and schedule. Finishes well-balanced and a touch minerally. Kudos to StFun for providing this bottle of world class beer! I am rarely disappointed by this brewery.

Pours clear red, with off white head. Aroma has notes of sweet toffee, caramel, with a a hint of earth and smoke. Taste is similar, sweet caramel and toffee, some earth, peat, touch of smoke, sweet finish. Not bad, a bit sweet and lacking a bit in complexity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle shared by either BBB63 or stevemastny at the Pre-DLD event at Flossmoor Station. Thanks guys! Pours a deep amber color with some reddish tints and a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, faint smoky and peaty notes, dates, plums, and mild spices. Flavor of sweet and roasty malts, a little more smoke and peat, and the same dark fruits as in the nose. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a whole lot of maltiness to the mouthfeel. Interesting Scotch ale.
