Bottled from Valley Farm. Sweet roasty nose with some toasted maltiness. Roasted malts up front. Some sweetness and more maltiness. Pretty well balanced. Roasted finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Honestly I don't get much aroma (but I'd have a hard time smelling a fart in a porta john lol) the color is a deep amber to almost brown, head is a light tan. I don't get as much Scotch as I was wanting, but this beer is very smooth and has hints of vanilla. It finishes as smooth as a baby bottom with no bitterness at all. Over all this is an easy drinker but leaves a little more to be desired from a scotch ale.

Bottle, provided by Travlr, thanks Gene! Poured a clear nutty amber color with a light tan head. Aroma was some sweet, toasted caramel notes, some earthy notes to it too. Caramel taste, sweet notes. Pretty drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Best part of this beer is the aroma and appearance. Has good flavor, sweet and malty. Kind of heavy, and lacks a little of the bitterness and/or alcohol burn of some of the better Scotch Ales. But, very good nonetheless.

Bottle pour thanks to jake65. Pours a translucent amber with a velvety head of beige foam. The aroma has notes of toffee and walnuts. Some grainy qualities as well. Taste is mostly sweet with a continuing sweet finish. Medium bodied and light carbonation.
