This beer was poured out of a bottle and into a pint glass. It had a dark amber colour to it; almost caramel. Ale had a sweet malt nose with hints of oak and scotch. It also had a slight scotch taste to it, along with malts and a very slight roasted taste, but not by much. No significant lingering flavours or after tastes.

Would I buy this beer again? Maybe.

A- Very pretty dark copper brown. 2 finger bright white head. Excellent lacing and head retention.

S- Smell is just a malt nose explosion. Smells very sweet and sticky actually.

T- Taste is just full of so many different malts. Caramel, toffee, a hint of chocolate and coffee. i don't detect hops, not even on the finish.

M- Super big body on the beer. I feel like I have to chew this thing instead of drink it.

O-I didn't care a whole lot for this beer. It was alot bigger than I would have liked.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a Tulip Glass.

A - Pours a hazy mahogany with a thin white head that recedes to some wispy haze and a slight ring.
S - Big chocolate aromas here, followed by caramel, malt, a touch of smoke, and a bit of burnt orange peel hops.
T - Obviously a malt-heavy brew, with lots of caramel, toffee, and chocolate flavors accented by more smoke and citrus hops. Not exactly bursting with flavors, I'm finding this to a be a bit lacking in "oomph". Kinda bland, if I'm being honest.
M - Pretty smooth, perhaps a bit sticky, with a medium body and moderate carbonation. ABV is mostly undetectable, not bad for an almost 8% brew.
O - A decent Scotch Ale, but this is no Dirty Bastard. Sorry.

Got one of these when the wife went down and got me a pick six. 12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A- Pours dark copper in color. Off white head with good retention. Sticky lace left on the glass.

S- Sweet carmale malts dominate the nose. Roasted aroma hidden below. Smells like a Wee Heavy.

T- Sweet flavors up front on this one. Caramel flavors throughout. Maybe some toffee/coffee flavors blended in at the end of the drink. Very smooth drink.

M- Medium body, light carbonation.

D- Good, easy to drink beer. Could have a couple of these, but would probably get a little bored with it. Still good beer, just not my favorite here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance -- pours a ruddy cupric hue with a slim creamy beige head.

Smell -- Husky grain, whole wheat toast, earthy hops. Not a whole lot going on.

Taste -- Toasted bread, cracker, plum-like esters, burnt sugar, molasses, floral and spicy hops. Lingering flavors of golden toast and plum.

Mouthfeel -- On the heavier side of medium with moderate fluffy carbonation. Pretty good, actually.

Drinkability -- A good beer, but not one of my favorites, either for the style or for Tyranena. Came off more as a robust amber ale as it was lacking some rich caramelized malt flavor.
