12oz bottle.jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Pours a dark cherry/ruby-red with fizzy foam that quickly vanishes. Lovely aroma of dried dark fruits and slightly molasses-y malt. Flavor is dry and biscuity of light toasted grains at first. Malt starts to sweeten, then leafy hops add a clean, modest bitter touch. Notes of dark fruits are considerably less pronounced in the flavor as compared to the aroma; in fact the flavors on the whole were a bit muted. Thinnish, watery palate with bready, slightly dry aftertaste. Disappointed that the flavor didn’t quite deliver on the aroma’s promise.
Nice dark brown pour. Nose and taste is very sweet malt followed by more sweet malt followed by more sweet malt. Rated 7/1/02 Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours a copper toned body with a thin white head. Sweet woody and caramel notes, some light peat and smoke. A bit nutty and chewy with some caramel etoh tones. A nice scotch ale.

12oz bottle served in a stem glass. Pours dark ruby topped by a thin but lasting off-white head. Smells sweet and syrupy with a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is toffee, earth, and brown sugar. Very sweet, full bodied, low-medium carbonation. Finishes just as sweet as it starts, slightly cloying. Not really a fan of the style but I guess it is alright.

Rating #4300... Bottle... SMAACMSM O-Town Throwdown, Part Sept... Clear copper ale with a large, frothy, white head. Incredible retention. Metallic, meaty, vinous aroma with a note of toffee. Medium to full-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. A touch metallic, meaty and sweet. Lingering, lightly bitter, mostly sweet finish. Big THANKS to johnykat for shipping these bottles down from PA! mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a clear, amber maroon, with a small off white head. The smell is of big sweet malts, and alot of dark fruit. Apples and plums mostly, as I seemingly get in most scotch ales I try. The flavor is much the same, with the fruits being the most prominent, and gives it a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. It was a touch maybe overcarbonated wihich was a flaw, but overall not bad. Lothore (647) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a deep reddish brown with a small fizzy head that dissipates rather quickly.
S- Smells sweet, yeasty, with hints of lighter fruitiness.
T- Taste is much darker than expected, almost dubbelesque with strong tones of dark fruit throughout the middle, a hop bitterness at the end but with a bit of a weak beginning.
M- Thick and a bit too carbonated for my taste.
D- In my opinion this is a good brew that misses the mark a little. I like it but I couldn’t session it and it just seems like it doesn’t come together cohesively enough.
