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

Appearance: Brown/red color with one finger of head that fades slowly with a curtain of lace.

Aroma: Toasted malt with some fruit syrup sweetness mixing in, mostly cherry.

Taste: Nutty, husky toasted malt with ample sweetness, followed by some earthy bitterness towards the back end. The malt profile takes back over for the lingering finish and is mostly nutty with some mild warming that increases as you go.

The Rest: Full bodied, almost creamy and highly drinkable, this beer has gotten me in to trouble a few times. It really hides it's 7% well and is one of my go-to's around town.

Serving type: growler

I got this beer at a bar in the Rochester region without any prior knowledge of the Rohrbachs brewery.

Appearance - Dark and dense for a scotch ale with good carbonation. Poured from a pitcher into pint glasses and got good head with decent retention.

Smell - Burnt caramel and some earthiness.

Taste- Has a dense chewy mouthfeel that fits with the caramel flavors and lingers well after a short buildup to full flavor.

Serving type: on-tap
