Draft sample at Knoxville Brew Jam. Poured a brown color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malt aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Smooth flavorful brew, my expectations where met.

"courtesy of bluesandbarbq - nice looking cloudy ruby brown ale. smoke in the aroma with some fruity maltiness. smooth body as well, but the flavor was a bit of a hybrid of styles, although id guess unintentionally. the fruitiness from the malt was cool, but there was the (sometimes present in scottish ales) lemony astringency that took away from the flavor of the peet and smoke. the aftertaste was both scottish ale and a weak attempt at a sour. possibly oxidized?? ive had occasional bottles of Sacsquatch & Kilt Lifters that had a similar aspect as well-but never on tap."

clear blood red, frothy tan head, nice sweet carmel malt aroma blended with earthy hops, light body, good carmel malt flavor and nice earthy hops and smoke to balance but lacking the depth that you cant get and be within the 6% limit, disappointing, touch of sweetness,

On tap (I think) at the Preservation Pub (I think - notes a bit of a mess), Knoxville on 9 July 2006. Have to say this didnt make too much of an impression on me. Unsurprisingly, sweet fruity malt and caramel dominate. Mouthfeel is mellow, tending towards soft, and quite thin. Not much hop in evidence. OK but unremarkable. Not a style Im too keen on anyway.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Dark brown, with thin tan head. Huge malty, bready, veggie aroma. Very smooth, rich palate. Hints of coffee in an earthy, smoky finish. Not bad. Sampled at the 2005 Music Ciry Brewers Fest.

decaturstevo (6198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2006
On tap at Barley Knoxville. A dark brown/amber pour. A taste of roasted malt and a slight warmness. A sweetness in the taste with a wisp of bitter. Good carbonation and palate. Maybe I enjoyed this beer because it was my first of the day, but I enjoyed it and was surprised at the difference in my rating and the score. What the hell I liked it.
