Gachupines' rating

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAY 4, 2011
Dark brown, almost black with a thin lacing of head. Aroma is slight, some roasted malt and a little musty. Flavor is a little sweet followed by a fairly strong bitterness though it doesn’t linger at all. Mouthfeel is very thin, it should have a fuller body. Overall, not bad but the lack of body really hurts this one.

Pours a dark copper, with tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is rich and sweet. This is a solid scotch ale. Thumbs up!

It pours brown with a light brown head. It has a sweet, malty fruity aroma. It has a heavy plum and sweet malt aroma. There are also toasty elements. The initial flavor is sweet. It has flavors of caramel, sweet grain, and heavy on the plum. It has a moderate body and a sweet finish that is highlight by fruit, especially plums. Overall. It has a sweet flavor from start to finish. The grains are sweet with sweet dark fruit.

Draft sample. The beer is a darker copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has malty caramel and some woody notes. Some spice as well. Medium sweetness in the taste. Bigger body and moderate carbonation.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Dark copper-amber pour with a 1" off-white head. Nose is dark fruit (this oddly reminds me of a little red dried fruit from Chinese groceries that I can’t recall the name of...) Fairly sweet and sticky body. A bit disappointing, though part of that may be that it’s August and I’m drinking a Scotch Ale.

a decent scotch ale, but nothing special. This beer is just ok. I’ve had a few by these guys and this one is up there pretty far. Hope to be able to purchase again sometime in the future. Definitely need to check out more.

Just your average scotch ale. Not a lot to brag home about. Tasty and smooth for 7% but just like all scotch ales... Missing something.

Big bottle into tulip. Dark ruby with minimal head. Oak resinous aroma. Sweet raisin malty oaky taste. Slightly astringent aftertaste. Ok but not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
