look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Batch #47, shared at a tasting (thanks to whomever brought this one along). Pours a deep brown with some light ruby highlights, a dark-beige, nearly tan head forms and settles to a thin skin atop the brew for at least half of the pour. Aroma is packed with deep, sweet, dark fruits; apple skins, red grapes, plums - almost as much on a bitter "rind and pith" side as it was on the sweet and candied side. Some light spice on the nose, although it's a bit too faint for me to start calling out actual spice names. Something's definitely in there, though.

The taste is full of a blast of sugar-coated plums and more red grapes. Nice sweetness and a smooth maltiness with a bit of toasted caramel and toffee. That damn spiciness is back again and still ambigious to me as to what exactly it may be, but it certain provides a different flavor. Halfway though, I start tasting a sweet and sugary flavor, very similar to "sugar in the raw" (that brown, granulated stuff). Lots of dry, dark malts everywhere. Some light booziness throughout, with a very faint hint of smoky flavors, most noticeable near the tail end. Finish is sweet apple skins and plums. Medium body with average carbonation.

Decent wee heavy, lots of flavors althought the sweetness was a touch unbalanced. Still pretty drinkable and overall easy-going for a 9.5%-er.

A- Pours a very dark brown with a little head but not a ton.

S- A lot of molasses and cinnamon and some other spices. You get that burn from the spices and alcohol in your nose.

T/M- Very nice malt front with a very sweetness that comes through. Then you get the molasses and all the spice that work so great together. It is so smooth you can not even taste the 9.5% very thick and it coats your mouth.

O- A great beer from Pipeworks, this is a style I usually do not drink but this is very good. It is amazingly smooth.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky brown, but not quite pond water. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Buttery scotch ale aroma with caramel and molasses. Spicy, though. CInnamon, I think.

Taste - Again, scotch ale buttery caramel. Very intense molasses. Deep molasses. Even bitter. Very spicy in the finish, which seems a touch out of place.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Spicy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Tasty combination of flavors. Took me a while to get used to the spices.

Used to hate this style. Can't imagine why.

I picked this up at a Binny's in Naperville.

Served in an Elysian tulip.

A: Poured a dark, dark brown, not too thick, and with a head, which is unusual for a Scotch Ale.

S: Sort of black cherry with added caramel + molasses.

T: Ahhhh. How refreshing. I never thought I would say that about this particular style. Not too spicy, and I could definitely tell it was in the style Pipeworks stated it was. Molasses in spades!

M: Molasses even permeated the mouthfeel on this one. Chewy, like a Tootsie Roll, but with a greater fruit component.

O: This brew is just flat out awesome. I've had some great Pipeworks brews now, and this one ranks up there with the best of them!
