pours a reddish color with a medium head. aroma is chocolate and flavor is the same. caramel maltiness is secondary. palate is a bit watery. this is ok. SpringsLicker (3692) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Deep mahogany with loads of ruby red.
Large thick head of off white cream on top. Wish it stayed a little longer.
Lots of malt in the aroma with some hop presence too.
Creamy rich and very smooth with sweet malt and caramel going from the beginning to the end. I don’t detect any peated malt so I don’t know about the style, but this is a very pleasant beer overall and a very easy one to drink. sixpackcharley (19) - barclay, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Sweet chocolate aroma and rich pleasant palate. A fresh ale with many promising attributes. The chocoloate color belies the definite sweet aroma. Smooth to the end, this ale is worth repeating. footy (348) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Bottled 12 oz. Dark brown. Sweet malty taste but very little peaty taste. Ok but not as good as skullsplitter. Zeswaft (1788) - Edmonds, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Nothing spectacular. Another solid Three Ffloyds brew but bottom of their line. Full body and tastes more like an average chocolate porter than a scotch ale.

Dark amber color,fresh full slightly hoppy aroma, a full nicely blended malt hop taste, a little heavy on the malt, very flavorful. Anothe 3F gem ploetzm (4) - Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2004 does not count
Fantastic nose of caramel and toffee. Rich aromas lead to a balanced sweetness. Not overly heavy. Very pleasant to drink. A nice representation of the style. I really enjoyed this beer. wildmanzero (12) - USA - OCT 30, 2004
Mahogany brew with moderate beiga head. Great sweet malt aroma. Taste is a little less sweet and a little more hoppy than the originals from Scotland. Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Ruby colored beer with a disappearing light brown head. Sweet yeasty and caramelly aroma with some spices. Distinctive Three Floyd aroma, could it be the yeast? Fruity tones and a bit of alcohol also. Flavor is rather sweet malty and fruity, mild with a thin finish. Toffee notes and hints of pepper. Nice and easy without beeing spectacular. Thanks Steve (wohlfs) for trading me this one. kane (111) - USA - OCT 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Dark caramel color with a thin off-white head. Sort of like a light spicy porter. Smooth and creamy with a good malt character. Not a session beer but good stuff.(3)
3/12/05 Had on cask and this did not work at all. The cask version had a definite alcohol aroma and taste that was distracting for this style. Also the grassy hops became overpowering for any malts to come through.(2.1)
