3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a murky dark brown, almost opaque. No head, mild carbonation. Aroma is molassis, floral tones, sweetness. Taste is big molassis, some brown sugar, alcohol. A very light bitter hopping. Caramel sweetness. Finish is alcoholic with just a touch of burnt malt, nice. Body is just a touch too thin for the style. Certainly not a traditional American porter, as the roasted and chocolate malts are subdued. More of a hearty winter ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma have some maillard products. There are also aromas of roast, wheat, low levels of dark fruit, and a hint of smoke. The flavors are highlighted by roast and wheat with a low level of chocolate. There are also flavors of dark fruit. It has a moderate feel to it with the roast and chocolate more prominent in the aftertaste. It has a slight alcohol warming effect. Overall, this is a wheat and roast driven beer with some fruit and other flavors in the background.

dark brown with very little head; light malty aroma; weak roasted malt flavor; for a fairly high gravity beer it comes across as light and watered down

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut brown color with chocolate hints; head of 2 fingers which diminishes quickly; no lace to speak of
Almost nothing on the nose; maybe some faint malts and twig; slight cocoa.
A weird collaboration of cocoa powder, liquid smoke, toasted barley malts, slight bubble gum, and a flavor of antiseptic alcohol. Meh.
The feel is the best part. Creamy, medium bodied, highly carbonated, dry parched w/ cocoa finish.
I really like Scuttlebutt as a PNW brewery. This was easily their weakest offering. I’d pass on it again if I were up in the area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with chocolate and with hints of citrus. Taste is a big dark fruit and malty sweetness with a light citrus and grass hop bitterness. Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Overall, a little hoppier than most dunkels, but still suits the style well and I recommend this to others.
