COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yakima Craft Brewing Co.ís Twin Stag is a dark and brooding brew. Mysterious and complex, this robust ale is perfect as a compliment to good conversation and long, bold tales.

(22oz bottle) Pours a dark mahogany body with a tall foamy cola head. Aroma of cherry, caramel, light sour infection notes, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, light ash, cola, chocolate, and some sourness from an infection that is probably helping this beer.

Bought a 22oz (651ml-not 650ml here?!?!) bottle of this from the Beer Shoppe in Yakima, WA for $4.99. Poured from the Green Labeled bottle w/ Reindeer on the front?? into a 16oz Arcadia IPA Pint Glass. Has no freshness date but not worried since its a local brew. Aroma- A malty, sweet aroma with some light roasty characters. Not strong enough but all around has what the style should be focusing on. Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that has decent head retention. Has a medium brown with copper highlights in the body and leaves a few suds behind. Flavor- Rich, malty, and has a good espresso roast flavor. Medium bitterness in the finish leading me to ask how much hop they really put in here!?!? Very good! Bit of caramel in the background. Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Semi-chewy, and very smooth with well-balanced malt to hop ratio. Overall Impression- A nicely brewed sweet, scottish ale with a good amount of roast and light coffee attribute. It was very drinkable and never had too much or too little of anything. Aroma could be a bit more character involved and strong but not too bad!

Bomber. Okay, first thing--there is something wrong with this beer. When I poured it, slowly even, there was a centimeter of liquid at the bottom of the glass; the rest of the glass was all foam--a giant tan ice-cream-float-like head. Aroma is full of molasses, caramel. After that giant head finally disappears, the liquid greeting my tastebuds is lightly malty sweet, peaty, a touch sour. Carbonation is soft, body medium. Let me re-rate this when I get a normal bottle.

Bottle:   Deep cola, dirty, moderate foamy light beige head, sparce lacing.   Peat, campfire, charred wood, and dark chocolate on the nose.   As it warms I am also getting some cocoa.   Soft maltiness on the tongue, not as heavy as I would have liked but decent.   A little tangy, slight tart bite.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, finishes a little thin tho.   Has quite a bit of flavor, which is nice.   Moderate sweetness.   Surprised this one was as dark as it was.   Fair offering, nice combo of flavors, but just not really all that malty.

650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a small beige head and some thin lacing. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is heavy roasted malty sweetness with a light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium to heavy body and moderate carbonation give a nice mouthfeel. This is a pretty decent scotch style ale worthy of a taste.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Deep brown, light tan ring of bubbles. Roasty nose, a little figgy, toasty, burnt toffee sweetness. Surprisingly sweet when sipped, sticky toffee, more roast, light burnt notes, earthy mild hops. Scotch ales donít tend to blow me away, but like many of them, this beer has a lot of drinkability.

11th rating of this bitch. What. Rating beer sucks. Anyways... Nose is toasty with notes of toffee earth, dark fruit, chocolate, and roast. Pours dark brown, thin head. Flavor is toasty, roasty with notes of chocolate, dark fruit and toffee. Light earthy bitterness. Smooth body, medium sweet, well balanced. Decently drinkable well put together. Fuck.

Tap: Dark brown with a tan ring head. Malty choco aroma with a stronger flavor than expected. Kind of tastes like a malty porter. Smooth aftertaste.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours thick and dark with some transitory tan bubbles. From a foot away the aroma seems anise. Up close it seems chcocolate and dark fruit. Near full body. Flavor is kind of a raisin/chocolate/anise combo. Finishes with a smokey note. Then it goes more like treacle/raisin. Ok, mysterious and complex work here.
