roder60 (1282) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2006 Pours a clear and bubbly dark amber/brown color with a lovely amount of froathy tan head. Aroma is a bit malty and caramely, but not much there. Flavor is very rich and malty, very sweet and like brown sugar. Slight smokey peat flavor but drowned out by sweatness. Overall, just so so.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Poured dark amber with thin head. Slight aroma of malt and fruit. Flavor of malt and caramel. I thought it was a bit thin and too carbonated, maybe a bit kicked up with yeast. The alcohol was well hidden, but too thin in the body. Not a bad Scotch ale, but not my favotite.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours with thin off-white head that quickly disappears. Clear mahogany color. Aroma is malt, sweet grains, and a hint of raisins. Flavor is smoky, malty, with a smooth wheat aftertaste. Not bad, but I expected a bit more body.

FridgRaider (108) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Deep amber color, off white head. Thin body, watery in the mouth, but went down dry. Dry after taste(big turn off) for this style of beer. Disappointment for Weyerbacher.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle: Poured a deep clear copper color ale with a small off-white foamy head with minimal retention. Aroma of slightly roasted sweet malt with some very subtle peat. Taste is a mix between sweet malt, subtle peat (too subtle for the style IMO) and a watery finish. Body is definitely a bit thin for the style but alcohol was well hidden. Good but well short of being great for the style.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Pour was a clean, brown/red color witha foamy, off-white head. Aroma was brown sugar, nuts, and smoked peat. Flavor was sweet carmel and brown sugar, with some smoke, and mild molasses, and a little roast in the finish. A little more body would really make this a nice beer. Alcohol very well hidden.

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Thanks Jeremy for getting me this bottle from the brewery! Pours a clear dark copper color with a thin white head. Brown sugar aroma, as well as a hint of some smokey malt. Brown sugary taste. Kind of light, and easy to drink. I actually like this ale. Definitely worth trying.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Bottle. Dark, clear tobacco brown body with a loose, white head. Smoky brown sugar aroma. Lightly charred smoke taste with faint meat, but a sweetish whiskey malt backbone. Perfectly balanced finish, just a bit of dryness. Alcoholic whiskey flavors appear very late in the finish, lingering lightly with no burn. I’d like it heavier - especially considering the high abv - but nothing to complain about.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2006
12 oz. bottle: pours dark ruby read with little head. The nose is dominated by sweet malt with a slight cereal oder. The flavor is very malty a little smokiness, cereal, and sour in the finish. medium body. can’t tell that it is 8.7% besides the warming effect that it has
