HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2003 Very sweet nose that reminds me of butterscotch and toffee. This beer looks really great in the glass and has a long lasting head. The palate is malty sweet with a touch maple. The finish is long and sugary, which is correct for the style. I do suspect that this beer has been flash pasteurized, but it is not a huge detractor in the beers overall quality.

I hated the Taste of this beer. Almost like drinking Mollasses Taffy. Too sweet and under carbonated. Had a nice appearance and head with a good mouth feel, but that's about it. I'll never get this one again, and it may have shyed me away from trying other Scotch Ales.

fiulijn (16931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2003
Ruby color, creamy head. Nice malt aroma. Good body structure, pretty good malt, caramalt, very light roasted; not so common for commercial British bottles. Everything sustained by a pretty strong bitterness. Light pleasant fruity notes.

legion242 (2343) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Deep garnet colored; dense light khaki head; nose was good earthy malt. Excellent smoky moss. Nice alcohol presence. Good depth. Very slight tinniness at the back. Becomes slightly cloyingly sweet at the end. Didn't retain that awesome smokiness.

Deep cherry-wood color. Fair tan head. Nice malt aroma with hints of coffee. Rich malt flavor with hints of smokey peat. Warm finish with a bit of bitterness.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2003
This one pours a clear, dark reddish brown color with a medium sized, off-white head that lingers. The aroma is all malty sweetness. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is malty, with a hint of smokiness and caramel in the finish.

Nice malty aroma. Body is slightly sweet with a good amount of malt flavor. The finish leaves you wanting another sip. A good example of the style.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2003 A really lovely color and good light tan head start off this scots brew. Aroma is nicely malted, but a bit too light. Flavor is full and rich, with a nice malt character, as well.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2003
This mahogany ale has very little white head. The nose is rich and malty with lightly spicy cinnamon and golden raisin. The palate continues the rich maltiness and finishes with a bit of peat and caramel.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Fantastic. Rosewood color, with a beige head that dissipates quickly but sticks to the sides of the glass. Fairly dry yet fruity and caramelly, with an almost complete lack of hops which is compensated for by a robust and complex mixture of woodiness and peatiness. Very full-bodied and creamy.
