When poured, this beer's appearance was that of a small sized tan head with fine-large bubbles that mostly dissipated.The body was clear and uncarbonated with a reddish-brown hue.The nose was lightly malty and sweet along with a light malt and sweet flavor.This beer was smooth on the palate and light bodied.It left a fair amount of lacing on the sides of my glass.

A very heavy Scoth ale that is velvety smooth and wickedly strong. This beer has a very dark brown to mahogany body with virtually no head and virtually no lacing. The nose is very heavily malt with nice roasted aromas and an almost warm feeling. The flavor is very heavy malt with the noted roasting taste. The feel is quite full, almost to the level of syrup, but quite smooth and thick. The beer warms the senses from its obviously high ABV and full body.

Dark amber with a slight head that was short lived. I could smell roasted almonds and molasses. Down the gullet it went very smooth with a touch of that alcohol bite. I really liked this beer! Sweet but not a dessert......bit of a barley wine flavor. Once the Tap Room opens and I have to visit St. Louis for "business" I hope to try this on tap.

12 oz brown bottle. Basic label. Deep burgundy tinged color. Head was fluffy soft, bubbly and beige. Lots of hop bubbles break though. Initial aromas were spot on for the style. Very earthy, some robust peat and smoke aromas. Slight alcohol presence.
First taste was sweetly malty, with lots of earthy grains to it. Nearly burnt toast taste. Very rich flavors. Nice alcohol presence, even if it's only percieved. A belly warming effect to it. Only detriment to taste was a slightly slick almost medicinal cherry robutussin flavor and feel to the finish. Doesn't linger long enough to bother though. Good flavors and another quality beer from the MJR blockbuster deal.

Dark Amber color with a fairly thin head. Very aromatic though, with a prominent roasty component matched by a fresh oatmeal bready quality.

When first on the palate the toasted chocolate toffee notes dominate, but are a little tame for this style. Some oatmeal stout qualities are present. Hops are definitely there to balance things out, but the main virtue of this beer is the maltiness for sure.

Light to medium bodied mouthfeel which gives this beer very nice drinkability.
