COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Churchyard Ale is a strong/scotch ale. Large amounts of two-row pale gives this deep mahogoney hued ale a prominent malt flavor ending with an obvious alcohol influence. This strong ale is bittered with Bullion hops and finished with Willamete hops.

Deep brown pour. A bit of light woodiness, but it basically just smells like sweet, wet malt. Flavour has a touch of weird chewy roastiness that I’m not a fan of at all.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 22, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Cask version. Pours a very dark brown with a large bubbled off-white head. Served at cellar temperature. Has a pronounced bourbon flavor and is very malty. The flavor is quickly fleeting and has a very low hop profile. A delicious beer but it deceptively feels like it is bigger in alcohol than it really is.

Ratman197 (9956) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2010
On tap at Wynkoop poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of light tan foam. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness and light peat smoke. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, dried fruit, peat smoke and toffee with a smooth lingering peaty finish.

notalush (4913) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Cask - a fairly sweet scotch ale, with a bit of plumy character, some earthy/dms/boiled vegetable character (which is covered by the sweetness fairly well), and a peaty finish, followed by some alcohol warmth - a bit of vanilla, some toasted malt - sweetness washes out a lot of the other characteristics - okay.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 13/10/2007 Malt aroma. Dark red coloured strong in alcohol and rich on the palate with a slightly dry crisp whisky malt finish.

Dogbrick (8251) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a dark brown color with a thin and rocky white head that burns away pretty quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel and candied fruit as well as some malt. Flavors of caramel malt and toffee along with some sweet fruit. The finish is smooth and sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste, along with a touch of hops. Overall this is a unique take on the style, and it is a pretty good beer.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Now we are talking. This beer has a bold caramel aroma and flavor. Body is full and rich. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Very nice and balanced beer with lots of flavor.

Draft at Wynkoop. Coppery shimmer to this. Nose is malty, caramel, light spice notes and toffee. Taste is malt, fruits, light hops, and caramel. Body is light-medium with relaxed carbonation. Bit of dryness in spots. Finishes with more sweet maltiness, caramel, light hops and fruit notes.
