3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is dark brown with basically no head. Aroma is very rich malts, both dark and caramel. There is also the scent of dark stone fruits, like plum. The taste is very similar to the aroma. There is a bit of alcohol taste present the whole way down. It feels pretty crisp, though a bit heavy. Overall, itís not too bad, though not the best scotch ale Iíve had.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a light brown color with a small tan head and little lacing. The aroma wasnít very strong. It was caramel, nutty, and booze. The taste was nutty, caramel, and booze. It was creamy. It hid the alcohol well at first. As it warmed, it became much more pronounced.

Poured from bottle and everything just seemed ok to me. My go to scotch ale is Founders Dirty Bastard, and I'd rather have that than this. I'd drink this though if Founders wasn't available.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Lightly hazed deep amber brown color. One finger of frothy tan head. Retention is a tad below average and a thin ring of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Caramel, toffee, and peat right from the start. Then an almost mineral rustic outdoors. Sweet, yet manageable. Hints of tobacco, raisin, and dates.
3.5 T: Wow, thereís a lot of flavor in here. Big peat component with layers of caramel and toffee. More fruity than the nose with plum joining tobacco, raisin, and date. Mineral and a touch of metal. Itís not dry or sweet, but somewhere in the middle. Viscous neutral maltiness however.
3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a little bite to it. Light creaminess with a little more chewiness.
3.5 D: Good enough all around. Give it a try if you havenít already.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Every beer in this 6 pack was infected. No body left to the beer at all with a bunch of fruity notes. Horrible!! Not a wee heavy in any way. No one should ever buy a bottled beer from this company. This is the second 6 pack of a different beer that was infected. Over $20 and down the drain it went
