On tap at Carlsbad on 6/30/06: Clear dark amber mahogany pour has a thin ring of off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and peaty malt has good authenticity. Body starts with a nice, viscous sweet caramel maltiness and a smooth, authentic finish. A well-done, mildly warming Scotch ale. ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 16, 2006

Mahogany in color with a thin head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some nice smokiness. Full-bodied malt flavor profile with caramel, toffee, and a touch of roast, with well balanced bitterness and alcohol. Full on the palate without being too heavy and a surprisingly clean, lasting finish. burpfrank (299) - carpinteria, California, USA - AUG 5, 2006
This had a big ,thick head.biting aroma .fairly heavy bodied.color a dark red-brown.This was easier to drink than other heavy beers.I didn’t really care for it much because I like the IPA’s better,but this is a good beer for those of you who like this style.Had to try it.On tap at the source.
