Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2006
Pours a medium amber- almost lighter than I expected a wee heavy to be, with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, raisin and a touch of smoke and roasted barley. Flavor was a bit weak as indicated by its lighter color, with some sugary sweetness, candied friuts, raisin and light caramel malts. Finish is slightly sweet and somewhat smooth but lacks a bit of body. beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Draft atm. Dark brown clear pour. Aroma was a bit weak, with some malts. Roasty flavors, sweet upfront and a slight bitter finish. UNCCTF (587) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. This isn’t as gloriously awesome as their IPA, but this is a good beer. Hides the alcohol and has a smooth malty feel. Tasty. MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2005
clear mahogany, copper at edges. tan head. very faint malty nose. far away sweet smoke aroma. deep malty flavor, sweet with a little alcohol but not hot. slightly smoky finish, a little bitter hop too. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2005
Deep brown color. Lots of roasted yuminess with some bitter chocolate in back. Really well done.

Nice dark color with lacy head. Malty, slightly piney, and woody. Slightly syrupy and kind of hard to swallow, but other than that it was all good. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2005
nice darkish purple infused color with a fastly vanishing soapy head. Very malty aroma full of carmel wood. Tasted much the same with some added maple tones to it. Pretty god damn solid. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Peat/mint/caramel--a very nice aroma but a tad subdued. Taste:ooh, smokiness in finish, medium-heavy mouthfeel with oiliness. Peat/smoke. A bit of maple syrup. Satisfying. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin light tan head. Caramel malty aroma has a touch of green English hops and a hint of lager yeast. Starts sweet with nice subtle malty caramel flavor but it very thin and watery, especially toward the finish. It hides it’s alcohol well though, somehow, but could really use some more body.

reddish brown w/ a slightly malty nose & flavor. this is not a big scotch ale, but very tame.
