Deep brown pour. A bit of light woodiness, but it basically just smells like sweet, wet malt. Flavour has a touch of weird chewy roastiness that I’m not a fan of at all. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 22, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Cask version. Pours a very dark brown with a large bubbled off-white head. Served at cellar temperature. Has a pronounced bourbon flavor and is very malty. The flavor is quickly fleeting and has a very low hop profile. A delicious beer but it deceptively feels like it is bigger in alcohol than it really is.

On tap at Wynkoop poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of light tan foam. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness and light peat smoke. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, dried fruit, peat smoke and toffee with a smooth lingering peaty finish. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Cask - a fairly sweet scotch ale, with a bit of plumy character, some earthy/dms/boiled vegetable character (which is covered by the sweetness fairly well), and a peaty finish, followed by some alcohol warmth - a bit of vanilla, some toasted malt - sweetness washes out a lot of the other characteristics - okay.

Malt aroma. Dark red coloured strong in alcohol and rich on the palate with a slightly dry crisp whisky malt finish.

Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a dark brown color with a thin and rocky white head that burns away pretty quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel and candied fruit as well as some malt. Flavors of caramel malt and toffee along with some sweet fruit. The finish is smooth and sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste, along with a touch of hops. Overall this is a unique take on the style, and it is a pretty good beer.

Now we are talking. This beer has a bold caramel aroma and flavor. Body is full and rich. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. Very nice and balanced beer with lots of flavor. norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2007
On cask at Wynkoop. Pours dark brown with tan head. Dissipates quickly. Malt forward. Sweet with caramel and chocolate notes. No hop presence. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - MAY 28, 2007
tap at the brewpub. dark red brown body with a decent head of white. sweet caramel nose with a light hint of butter. flavor was outstanding. fruity with a big dose of toffee. light cherry flavor(or something similar) lingered in the finish.

Draft at Wynkoop. Coppery shimmer to this. Nose is malty, caramel, light spice notes and toffee. Taste is malt, fruits, light hops, and caramel. Body is light-medium with relaxed carbonation. Bit of dryness in spots. Finishes with more sweet maltiness, caramel, light hops and fruit notes.
