UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Looks great, smells great, big juicy, fruity, chocolatey, roasty, toasty malts balanced by assertive yet mild hops. This is great stuff!

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - MAY 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2004 Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor is that of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Oh man I love this brew. It tastes better the second time I sampled it than the first. 3 Floyds have out done themselves with this brew!!

pivo (2672) - GERMANY - MAY 23, 2004
Light malty nose, hazy deep amber, fomay head. Very warm, fruity malt body. Some caramel. Something very Old World about this - like a British ale (only thicker and good). Even got a little butterscotch coming through, but not too much. Dainty spiced end (pepper). Oily mouth feel and not thin at all.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Bottle. Dark brown and ruby, very little head. Aroma has caramel, chocolate, whiskey barrels, tamari, very nice. Medium body, lots of roasted malts, chocolate, hints of smoke, earth. Very quick finish, some sweet stickiness, metallic. Alcohol well masked. More mellow than I expected, but good, especially for a style that is hit or miss for me.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Deep copper pour with a smidgeon of head. Big spots of lace here and there. Toffee and warm biscuits come out first. Traces of alcohol, hops and malts also in the nose. The flavors show the chocolate and roasted malts from the description. Small pepper as well. Bitter end to this one. Tangy palate.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Bronze amber color with light head and some carbonation, moderate lacing for the comparable carbonation. The aroma is malty with some brown sugar sweetness and a very dry, hop note coming through. The flavor is very balanced between the sweet and the hops. The impact of the sweetness is very large but the hops ride it down the palate perfectly, never letting one or the other take center stage. The finish is dry and dusty too with some darker malt notes rounding it out. Very unique scottish, good. Thanks Falconseye!

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Overall it was a pretty good beer. It was on my list of beers to buy this weekend but ended up finding it on tap at a local restaurant. Was a nice amber color, with a small white head. Taste was filled with malt, caramel and very light coffee. Not bad overall, probably wont pursue buying in bottle though anymore.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Medium brown orange color, medium frothy head. Butterscotch toffee and malt nose - very light though. Also the flavor is light, malt, raisons and pepper - kind of weak.

First 3 Floyds I tried, and I liked it. Nice bitter taste, very beautiful reddish brown color. Head was large but seemed to dissipate quickly. It warmed up quickly and the taste malty but still had a nice hop flavor to it.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 8, 2004
In the bottle. Dark reddish brown in color. Thick creamy head of substance. Tiny bubbles. Aroma of malt, possibly a little wine-like. Slightly buttery up front, but a little disappointing in the mouth-feel body category. Head disappeared rapidly. Subtle raisin flavor. Back of the tongue bitterness. As this warms up, I get a better feel for the maltiness. This one really should be slurped at room temperature. I guess I expected more from my first 3 Floyds ale.
