BillKismet (3839) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Mahogany-scotch colored with a minimal head. Rich caramelized malt and aged cherry nose, with lovely flares of wood, and perhaps, peat. Wonderful malted grain layers. Rich caramelized, sweet grainywort flavors infused with aged wood, and some cherry notes, with perhaps a touch of other stone fruits and dark muscovado sugar. Thoroughly delicious and perilously drinkable for the high ABV%. Iím enjoying every sip from this growler.

A good scotch style, that wonderful combination of peat and maltiness. Ends with a nice malt note, sweeter and roasted.

katerade (14) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Poured dark cola-colored with a thin white head. Smells of coffee with notes of oak. Palate consists of smooth carbonation. Tastes of dark roasted coffee with malted toffee finish.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured deep ruby/brown with an off-white head. Buttery and toffee-malt aroma. High carbonation with candy-like flavors of butterscotch and toffee while the malted grains stopped the bitterness in the finish.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2008
On tap at Uber a while back. Clear brown w/ small head. Weak sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt with alcohol dominating. Bland and just not much going on. Drinkable, but absolutely zero smoke/peat/earth coming through. Probably the biggest disappointment Iíve ever tried from Walking Man.

Deep ruby/brown with a small head. Smoky, woody aroma. Big malty, peaty flavour with notes of honey, smoke and alcohol. Lingering honey malt finish.
