Bomber bottle. Poured dark brown with an average off-white frothy head that diminished slowly. Moderate nutty sour citrus aroma. Medium body with sticky texture. Balanced medium sweet sour flavor with a medium duration finish. Stronger citrus flavor than I expected. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
The label does not lie, this beer is a meal. Clear brown pour with minimal tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and some nuts. Lots of earthy, peat-like flavor, as if the beer was finished in a scotch barrel. The caramel and nuttiness there throughout compliment it nicely. A really good beer, especially if you don’t plan on doing anything afterward. burpfrank (299) - carpinteria, California, USA - APR 29, 2006

A decent Scotch ale. Some caramel flavor, decent hops, and a heavy malt. A nice thick feel, decent flavor. Not bad. ABUSEDGOAT (2796) - California, USA - APR 22, 2006
Dark amber body, moderate head. Nuts, caramel and molasses. Flavor has these notes but doesn’t feel like a Scotch ale. Actually, I don’t know what this feels like. Whatever..

The aroma has some hints of caramel, hops, and light spice. The color is an amber with a light tan head. The maltiness comes through at the forefront and a finish has some hop flavor. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
22 oz’er from Bev Mo. poured a red/amber color, with a light tan/ oof white head. This beer put my grandpa and I on our asses!! 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 6, 2006
Bottle from DarkElf. Sadly, this disappoints. Pleasant, clear, garnet colored beer with a gigantic light tan head. Good lacing. Aroma has hints of sweet malt, perhaps a touch fruity. LIght bodied and far too carbonated to enjoy. Thin flavors, a bit winey. I am thinking that this is infected. Nothing to look at folks, move along.

Bottle, from Julio’s. Ok nose. Malty. Peaty, Kalamta olive, black tea, latex paint, maybe a little cherry. Clean brownish orange color, small head that faded quickly, no lacing. Malty aroma, like aroma. Medium body, lite creamy oily mouthfeel, nutty sweet finish. Huh, don’t know about this one. I didn’t like it’s mix of aroma’s and flavors. Oh well.

Big hiss as the cap comes off, pouring a translucent cherry-brass color with an audibly fizzing and booming foamy tan head. Liquefied brown sugar, golden raisins, soggy Honey Bunches of Oats, cinnamon apple sauce, whicker baskets and beachwood smattered with honey do little to excite the mouth’s chance at deciphering this aromatic train wreck. Brown sugar sweetness comes in first for flavor, recessing with caramel dipped apples that are stamped with cheap chopped peanuts. Surprisingly, the flavor overcomes a few aromatic obstacles. Maple syrup pancakes borderline a confounded McGriddles approach. Along with the most dormant hint of peat, a curt hop bite and dactylic alcohol hang around post sip each time, eventually becoming quite cumbersome and the unavoidable downfall. Creamy, fizzy, percussive sweetness across the palate, with a maple syrup delima, and overcarbonated from the get-go. Maple nut fudge and caramel drizzles comprise the finish. "Scotch" ale is a stretch. "Big Brown" might be more in line with what we’ve got here.
