Bright dark amber colour. Big caramel aroma with hints of earth. Chewy, earthy body, with plenty of caramel and a hoppy accent in the finish. The malts arent as bright as Id like them to be - the beer plods its way across the palate.

22 oz. bottle. My first and only Moylans. I like Scotch Ales, so I naturally compare this with the few Ive had, like Skull Splitter and McEwans. The first thing is that the full malty aroma wasnt there. The nice dark brown (a tint of red) color was there, nice mouthfeel. A tad overcarbonated. The flavor was good, but not top-notch. I certainly think Moylans is onto something here, though - the deficiencies are pretty minor overall - a step away from being great. Bottom line is I got this in a corner store in SF while visiting, and if I lived there Id probably buy it on the regular.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2006 On cask @ Moylans poured a clear dark brown with a small amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, and bread. Flavors of toffee, bread, hint of dark fruit, and a wee bit vinous.

Bottle. Pours a deep deep red with a brownish tint, off white head, clear with a few bubbles. Aroma is malty, kind of a bready smell to it, a hint of ethanol hanging in there too. Strong malt flavor, very rich with bourbony notes, a little bit of alcohol bite, hop bitterness peeks through as it finishes. Full bodied, carbonation was a bit heavy I thought, coats my mouth very smoothly, rich but not oily at all. It stacks up with the other Moylans beers that Ive had, good stuff.

Had an aroma of fruit paticularly apples. Ruby red body with tan head that settled on top of beer till finish. Some lacing left on glass. Flavor at first gulp was of alcohol. Alcohol flavor gave way to a sweet malt flavor. Was good with my breakfast burritos.

This isnt as strong a brew as the name might imply. It pours out as a brown brew with an aroma of nuts and sweet fruit. The taste has a sweet malt flavor. I was hoping for a bit more from this brew.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Bottle: Very nice aroma of caramel, toffee, and light chocolate. Pours a dark transparent reddish-brown with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Flavor is buttery caramel, brown sugar, and light toffee. Flavors are not as strong as the great aroma would indicate. A light nuttiness comes in the finish a lingers a little in the aftertaste. Good but not great like I was hoping after the aroma.

Dark and has a small head. The aroma has that lovely fruit feel to it, and the opening flavor is a nice burnt trace to it. I think I drank it too fast though...

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of light yellow brown colored fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a very cloudy brown colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lace. The aroma was nice with notes of apricot malts and caramel. The mouth feel was malty and mild from start to finish. The flavor contained notes of nice caramel malts. Rather enjoyable.
