Bottle. Poured a thick white head, dark brown and opaque liquid. Good aroma, but taste was a bit a bit sour. A little syrupy, not unpleasant, but the aftertaste was not good at all.

Not much aroma, which isn't necessarily bad. It least it didn't smell horrible! Excellent taste and mouthfeel. Beautiful dark coffee color with a nice tan/brown head.

Picked up a bottle in a mix six in WI. Average beer - light on complexity and nothing noteworthy to remember after finishing the bottle.

rondphoto (4227) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2014
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Opaque dark brown color, 2" tan head that slowly drops, bubbly curtain of lace. Taste is rich roasted caramel malt that stays true to itself, the flavor intensifying as it moves through the palate to a lightly bittered finish with the malt lingering for a long time. Really big and fantastic for 5.2%, a terrificly executed brew.

Reddish, rusty scotch ale with lots of malt, sharp yeast and hops. Some bitterness in fine tuned balance with the roasted chocolate malt.

AWISLguy (2706) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from Sonoma Cellars, picking up at 6 for my other brother. Pours a root beer color with a bit of a brown head. No lacing. Aroma has sweet caramelly malts, brown sugar, some peat and some cherry. Taste is of sweet caramel, some light sweet berries - mostly cherry - and peat. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly and somewhat sticky. Reasonable for style; not terrific overall.
