An amber brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fruit and roasted bread. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking, but very style sure.The flavor is also very complex with caramel, roasted bread, and a OK bitter end, though not quite enough to compensate for the sweetness. The mouthfeel is very smooth. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Dark brown color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is malty, nutty and sweet, with a touch of peat. A medium bodied scotch ale. Malts are nutty and sweet with a touch of peatiness. It’s very hoppy for a scotch ale, yet it’s not at all bitter. Extremely smooth with a nice sweet finish. Hides the 7.2% alcohol very well. An eminently drinkable ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Thanks TAR jamdead (8) - Ashland, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2004 does not count
An alltime favorite, but for deceptive reasons, it is just too damn smooth, a medium bodied malty beer with a small amount of hops. Yet the flavour is great for kicking back and enjoying life. flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Beautiful mahogany color with a medium off-white head. Nice malty aroma. Very sweet malty caramel flavor with a light hoppy bite in the finish. Very enjoyable! biermensch (64) - USA - JAN 25, 2004
I enjoyed the heavy malt, accented with chocolate and molasses, and did not notice an offensive aftertaste. I enjoyed this ale. I think that I will have another.

Deep deep red color, basically black. Short-lived tan head. Sweet cream aroma with a hint of spiced rum. How to describe all this malt? Black licorice and milky caramel stand out the most to me. Finishes with a bitter anise flavor. Has an unsubstantially creamy mouthfeel. I like everything about this beer except for the aftertaste - the bitterness doesn't encourage me to take another sip. temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Ah, Bob the Bruce. What a great beer. Light roast, deeply malty, but not overly sweet or cloying at all. Clear hop presence. I love this brew. elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Pours a very dark brown with almost no head, though what is there laces nicely. A full bodied, malty brew with a bit of hops, seems to fit the style very well and is quite enjoyable. If you're in a malty mood, go for it. TChrome (1481) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Beer pours nice amber brown with nice off white head that is retained. Lacing is obvious before any consumptin takes place. Aroma is almost all malt, with caramel and light smoke being present. Flavor is incredible. Mostly malty, however, one of the nicest uses of malt I have ever come across. Some hoppiness in the finish just seems to accentuate the malt flavor for me. Can't wait for another. TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2004
This is an interesting beer. It has the hoppyness of a scottish ale along with the taste of a stout. Those crazy brewmasters, what will they think of next?
