On June 25, 2015. At Pike Pub & Brewery in Seattle, Washington.painblanc (2) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015 does not count
Listed at 6.9% ABV.
Clear deep brown color, teal head. Caramel, malty, bread crust taste. Toasty aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Caramel, tosty scent.
Strong caramel taste and dry finish. It’s a good scotch ale but would benefit from a bit more body rosskyle (762) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Served on tap at Pike Brewing. Copper red color with a large dirty white head. Sweet malt aroma. Medium
Body. Flavor is a mix of scotch, grain and hops. None of which are overwhelming. Carbonation with a clean finish.

The aroma carries some malt and a hint of peat. Unfortunately that is all overpowered by a bitter, almost rancid flavor. Not good at all. VastActiv (7592) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Tap at Pike Brewing, Seattle. Colour is clear copper with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Sweetness, nuts and malts. WABeerFiend (426) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 06.13.14.
A: Very thin tan mess of a head. It recedes from splotches to nothing. Cloudy brown body.
S: Very faint caramel and earthiness.
T: Follows the nose.
M: It feels flat even though there are some bubbles on the tongue.
O: This looked and tasted like flavored water. I don’t have an idea of how old it was since they don’t date their bottles, but this is the 3rd Pike beer out of 3 that have been like this. They’re local, so this should not be a problem as much as it is. Drain pour. notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Tap at Pike - lighty hazy dark copper - rich maltiness (toffee) is complimented by some plumy sweetness, a bit of bread pudding - some balancing leafy bitterness - lingering toffee finish - nice. smallfry (169) - - DEC 13, 2014
(Bottle) Lots of intense malty sweetness. But some bitter astringency too. Not that good.
