Rating #1388 13.12.2014 330mL Bottle #13 from the 2014 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Deep burnt sienna pour with a bubbly tan cap. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee. Taste is quite sweet at first, malt and toffee, full bodied. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Bold caramel sweetness that lingers, delicate bitterness. Lovely scotch ale. sulawang (1161) - - NOV 24, 2015
Visual: Pours murky root beer brown with virtually no head, barley any retention, way too much suspended floaties.
Nose: light boozy, toasted caramel malts, (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: slick-flat/micro fizzy
Mid-palate: bitter alcohol, (lvl-8)-sweetness, (MAIN) red apple, toasted caramel malts, brown sugar/molasses
Finish: soft tangy, malty sweet-light cola finish.
