Brigadier (3605) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2006
On tap at the Fitchburg Great Dane location. The bronze colored body had a very faint head and scents of roasted melts and cherries mingled with some light flowery tones. In the body there were cherry, caramel butter and oak flavors competing for my attention. Overall it was exceptionally creamy and smooth with a nice semi-sweet finish. At the very end I detected hints of bitterness to balance out the experience. Enjoyable and a great standy for those times when you cant make up your mind.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a thin-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of sweet earthy caramel malt with lightly smoky peaty complexity. Body starts with a viscous sweet dark caramel maltiness with some light fruity esters and a full, yet smooth finish with lingering seaweed and smoke. A very nice Scotch ale.

On tap at JPDIPSOs: Pours a dark copper with a thin, wispy, off-white head. Aroma has some dry, peaty and caramel malty notes. Body starts with some mildly sweet caramel malt and dry peaty flavor with a thin palate and finishes with a touch of English hops. A pretty average Scotch ale.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2005
On tap at Great Dane - Fitchburg. Pour was a clear ruby with a short beige head and some nice lacing. Crisp caramel, toasted nuts, and some flowery noble hoppage found the nose... very nice. Floral hops, butterscotch, and sweet caramel were there for the flavor... rather heavy malt backbone... and a hint of alcohol around the edges. Smooth on the palate, but a little tacky at the finish and the alcohol presence was a bit heavy at the end. Aroma and flavor both picked up some earth character as this warmed. Certainly enjoyable.

Very soft texture. Basic malt flavors. Mild hops. Had this candy -- hard caramel type candy - flavor, an almost gritty white chocolate flavor. The nice sot texture was a bonus.

From the tap @ Great Dane in Madison. Dark, nutty brown in color. Medium body. Smooth feel and taste. Not that much of a meal as some other dark beers are. Very good beer.

From a 1 hour old growler. Toasted caramel with a smoky-nutty twist. Dark ruby-brown iwth a thin, off-white head. Sweet butterscotch and brown sugar flavor with toasted caramel. I like this one, but it can be a little too sweet. Medium-light body with a watery feel.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Translucent amber brown with an edged head. Aroma is caramel malts, toffee and Fabreeze. Nice full mouth feel; some oiliness and wax. Flavors are caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Some maple syrup, like taking a bite of syrup covered pancakes that were kept on the griddle 30 seconds too long. Encompassing, but all over the place.

Poured a very dark amber that is almost brown. The head is off white and slightly yellow. The aroma is deep caramel and vanilla. The taste has milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. There is also a light hint of smoke. The body is a little thin.
