Appearance - Dark reddish- brown color with a modest light beige head that slowly faded.

Smell Faint toffee-like aromas, with some raisins and bready notes.

Taste - Toffee and raisin-like malty notes typical of the style with a malty finish. At certain times when I was drinking this I got some root beer-like notes.

Mouth-feel -On the light side of medium- body with a moderate level of carbonation.

Overall - Decent Scotch ale from Beachwood.

Review from notes taken 7/14/13

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Appearance: Deep brown , with some garnet highlights - light tan, nicely creamy head - leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Very malty, with a lot of residual sugars - cooked, caramelized malts - caramel and toffee - touch of roast, smoke, and dirt - very sweet, sweeter than I would expect, even given the style - some dark fruits

Taste: Cooked, caramelized , very malty - sweet, sugary - a touch of smoke, roast, maybe some peat (might be imagining it) - minimal bitterness - some brown-ale like malts - some noticeable booze and sugary jelly

Mouthfeel: On the full side of medium, smooth, nicely carbonated, some residual sugar on the finish

Overall: I bet you could suck a malt ball through a garden hose!

So, so malty and sweet. This was probably not an ideal beer for a boiling hot summer day. Overall, not enough roastiness, way too much sweetness. Worth a try, but maybe this is worth sitting on for a few years.

On-tap at Beachwood Brewing

Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off-white head. Sweet and malty, rather substantial. Not terribly complex, but a nice nose. There is a bit of dark fruit character to it, maybe a hint of peat. The flavor is similarly simple, but enjoyable regardless. A solid flavor of caramel and toffee with a hint of earthy hops and peat. Sweet dark fruit notes are also there. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation.

Damn, this is a tasty beer. Not for hop heads but excellent if u want a flavor trip to days past. I always enjoyed barrel cersion but this was a tasty treat. Lots of flavor going on. Not sure if its true to style but had with 5 friends at Tovarish release and everybody thought it was fantastic. Too drunk for good notes, sorry.
