look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a chalice.

Pours a medium ruddy brown with a thin head receding to a cap with decent stick. Pretty clear.

Aroma is of bready malt and slight peat.

Flavor is sourdough bread and sour yeast. Slightly roasty with a small amount of smokiness.

Mouthfeel is thin and actively carbonated.

Overall a pretty weak flavored beer for the ABV. Thin mouthfeel and low flavor along with the sour lacto infection flavor I noticed in another of their beers. Not great.

poured into Belgian ale glass

A - transparent body of deep ruby brown under 2 fingers of khaki foam

S - caramel sweetness, peat

T - caramel sweetness, peat, hint of chocolate, touch of spice

M - medium/full body, high carbonation

O - Something is slightly off in the taste; can't quite put my finger on it, but it may be the yeast. Other than that, this is an enjoyable scotch ale.

Tap beer at brewpub stored in can two days before drinking.

Pours dark copper with a thin head that becomes a wide island. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of caramel/nougat and peat. It has a rich malt character aroma.

The taste is of caramel/toffee/nougat (hint of chocolate?). Peat smoke balances sweetness without overwhelming. Pretty long finish. Alcohol very well-covered.

It hits full-bodied. Carbonation a bit aggressive at the start, but soon relaxes.

A rich, malty brew with a nice touch of peat smoke character. Enjoyable!

At their Wausau pub. Although the look and feel are good, it's about the taste. There is an odd back smell/taste to the smell and taste, as if the grains aren't stored properly. Thus picking up punky woody taste. But this could be the yeast. If so and it may be since their s-bahn (Munich lager)was similar, they need to restart their yeast program.
