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 (6942) - 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 (413) - - 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 (5866) - Denver, 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.

(Bottle) Lots of intense malty sweetness. But some bitter astringency too. Not that good. gregwilsonstl (2466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Nice. Dark amber. Well done. Easy to drink. Kind of sweet. Candy like. Not terribly malty. Thx carter. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is large maltiness, earthy hops, and a toucho smoke. Large malt flavor a very pleasant floral bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation. I really like this beer. @bp slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"ok. it’s a little too sweet, and not quite full enough, but it was a pleasant enough beer. there are better out there, so i probably won’t have it again. 8/09-better on tap at the source, but what isn’t? more smoke, especially in the flavor, which is nice, but still a touch thin and sweet. upgrade to a 3.3 though (3.1 bottle, 3.4 tap)."

On tap at brewery....really good do not know why bottles do not do so well here. I loved it big scotch peat aroma, thick rich so good and balanced to style. Loved it with fish n chips with vinegar!!!!
