Condensed review: ----- Appearance. Full Boar has a deep dark amber color with a tan-colored head remained which didn’t last long. ----- Smell. This beer has a very dark malty aroma with a nice strong roasty sensation. ----- Taste. Full Boar has a warm roasted flavor and with a hint of toasted malts. It is very malty and slightly sweetFull Boar has a great Scotch ale taste. ----- Mouthfeel. A creamy sensation from the carbonation manifests nicely as a medium-bodied beer that is full of flavor. ----- Drinkability. This is a pleasant and easy to drink scotch ale that gives you a nice warm feeling on a chilly evening. ----- Full review: http://beer47.com/2009/02/devils-canyon-f type: on-tap

Holy foam-over, Batman!! This thing burst from the bottle when I opened it and foamed up like crazy when I poured it. Sometimes that's a bad sign, but not in this case. Deep, dark brown body with a (wait for it) *very* foamy tan head. Loads of cocoa, molasses and brown sugar in the aroma. More molasses and dark brown sugar in the taste with a bit of dark roast coffee and toasted wood. A bit of smoky wood peaks out after this but not in a campfire way. Some more cocoa powder and a little root beer come later. Finishes with a milk and dark chocolate flavor and a creamy body. Excellent Scotch ale!

Tastes like rich chocolate, dark chocolate, smoke and all are present through a long, smooth finish. Very strong nutty/roasted nut flavor. There is some sweetness, more fruity than sugary. I like the flavor profile quite a bit. Herbal bitter hops to balance, maybe stronger than I would have liked. This reminds me more of an imperial stout than a scotch ale. Dark brown/red, clear, tan head that dissipates. Moderate to thin palate.

A solid scotch ale. Some thickness and sweetness but a good balance. Not really my style but nice nonetheless.

Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Nutty aroma, malty, some grain, faint smoky notes and wood. Flavor is also malty with caramel and sugary sweetness, grain, bread and subtle chocolaty notes. A bit high carbonation, decent.

(22oz. bottle) - Big rocky off-white head, which collapses. Dark reddish body when held up to a light. Malty aroma. Flavors of grain and a bit of light brown sugar. A tad of bitterness on the tail end for balance. Very nice job!

Jyrsa (963) - - MAR 19, 2016
Pours brown with hints of red and a small white head. A complex nose malt, dust and peat. Peat with smoke and just a hint of coffee. Smooth with medium body. Sweet and just a bit salty. Very nice.
