6/17/2010: Bullfrog Wolfsblood Scotch Ale (oak barrel)... Aroma: Vineous; scotched butter; subtle notes of balsamic vinegar. Appearance: Mahogany brown; good carbonation level; small beige head. Flavor: Red wine (Merlot) at first with a sour/acidic twist that gives way to dry, oaky, caramelized sugar with hints of smoke and char; dry finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; generous carbonation. Overall: Very much like sweet, oaked rea wine with some beer charasteristic.

1 Pint, 9.4 Fluid Once bottle (Brewed: 10-1-07; Bottled: 9-25-08; Alc. 8% by Vol.) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #20 for this beer.

750 ml bottle from kramer. I shared this with the group on 6/17/10 (from notes). Pours a clear deep copper color with a small beige head. The aroma was fruity, caramel, bready malts, earthy and slightly woody. The flavor opens with a slight tart fruitiness, followed by a caramel backbone and lightly toasted bready malts. Mild earthy notes with a red wine like character. Some alcohol shows up. Medium body. Interesting, but not quite as good s some of the other Bullfrog beers Ive had.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown color with an average rocky off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy caramel, nuts and woody alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of average to long duration. Very enjoyable brew

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 6, 2010
A: The pour is a clear dark amber color with a thin off-white head. S: The nose is pretty much alcohol and fruity sweetness. Perhaps a touch of toasted malt. T: The flavors arent really any better. A lot of fruit sweetness with some mild citrus, a bit of toasted malt, and again, some alcohol. M: This is a medium bodied beer with low carbonation and some definite heat. D: Another "meh" offering from Bullfrog. This wasnt really anything like other Scottish Ales Ive had, and it just wasnt very good, either.
