Bomber from Cardinal-Niles. Pours dark hazy brown with tan head. Nice looking for style. Aromas of vanilla, smokey malts, caramel, toffee, and some dark fruits. Flavors of rich dark malts, toffee, vanilla, light smoke, and a bit of raisin. Would love it to be a little sweeter, but that is just a personal preference. Nice wee heavy.

Tan head. Maple, vanilla, molasses on nose. Deep brown in color. Nice body. Well carbonated. Sweet. Maple til the cows come home. Molasses. Roastiness. Toasty. Great Scotch Ale. More carbonated than most. Slight booze burn. Definitely a sipper. Though dangerously easy to put back.

Another great brew from a recently aquired Chicago shipment. As much as I love big IPAs ive always been partial to dark malt forward beers and this one is no exception. Pours a deep mahogany with a creamy head. Aroma of rich dark fruit and molasses (as one might expect seeing as it is brewed with it). Great rich heavy mouth feel, the molasses is rich and decadent with a hint of smoke. An awesome after dinner beer to share aroud the holidays.

22 oz bottle from Binnys SL (Chicago, IL). Finally caught up on Pipeworks rates after this one here. Pours a rich deep brownish hue, darker body, firm haze, middle is brownish as the edges show more deep reddish copper and rusty glow. Some pretty hues, a small frothy offwhite close to tan head sits atop, laces small and sticks around as a ring. Aromas are deeper caramel and toffee aromas, darker sweetness and carmelization. Some Twizzlers, gentle red fruit, toastiness, and kiss of cocoa. Caramel sweetness, darker slant with vanilla, smooth sticky malts, and touch of strawberry, red fruit. Fuller nose. Initial offers a medium bodied, a bit more heavy on the palate with toasty and carmelized malts, caramel, red fruit, Twizzlers, and toast. Some vanilla, gentle spice into the middle with dryness, more toast. A bit of ABV related heat with carmeloized malts. A touch of cola, faint waft of brown sugar, darker malts grow a bit more into the backend. Less sweet at this point, more toasty and dry elements, finish leaves some sticky reminders and carmelized malt elements. Some toast, dryness. Lingering gentle sweetness sticks on the middle of the palate. Touches of Tootsie Rolls at times, especially after it warms (that mellow cocoa dark fruit taste). Pretty solid beer, not necessarily my style but it earns some good marks for a good flavor, balance, firm body, good representation of the style. Nice.

22oz bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Batch #47. Pours a deep, glowing brown colored body with a bit of a ruby-black hue. Finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is molasses with touches of smoke, some earth, rich and deep caramels and toffees, and a few dark fruit esters. The flavor is similar. Rich and malt forward with lots of caramels, deep toffees, a hint of smoke and tobacco, a light earthy spice, nuts, and a few dark fruit esters. Molasses really comes on nicely towards the end as this finishes rich and sweet with a light spicy and earthy bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste with lots of molasses and a slight alcohol warmth following a very smooth, mostly full body and a soft, light carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid Scotch Ale. Very rich, deep, and fairly sweet with a light earthy, slightly smoky, and spicy balance. Enjoyable beer.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours deep brown with sweet notes if raisins. A sweet note showing sweetness that drives into a bit if a mealy dry finish. Barely wine style is what I get here.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle from Binny’s. Pours a deep brown, near black, light haze and a thin tannish head. Nose is earthy and lightly sweet. Apple skin and faint cocoa. Caramel. No hops noted. On tasting, big and sweet with a hint of maple syrup and cocoa. Drying finish. No roast here, not sure where that porter comparison came in. Some earthy notes with a toasty quality. Drinks closer to an English Barleywine or Old Ale to me but still solid. Minimal yeast influence. Just a touch underattenuated. Full body and low carbonation. Solid.
