red. Aroma wood chocolate. Tastes toffee, raisins, choco. strange very out of style for a scotch ale. Well balanced and less sweet that typical

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft 12 oz pour at the brewery. Pours a nice dark amber color with a patchy tan head. Has a very nutty aroma and flavor. Dry up front, malty, and a creamy body to it. Light vanilla and heavy caramel. Pretty standard scotch ale for me, but good overall. Would love to find the fun versions of this some day.

An interesting beer, but strange tastes throughout. Pours a deep red with a thin grey head. Smells of sea salt, scallops, smokiness and caramel. Taste seems like it tries too hard, some caramel, and like an earlier reviewer said, Dr. Pepper. Empty finish. Had in the bottle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours strawberry/copper with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma of deeply roasted malts - almost like meat. Near full bodied. Flavor is fruity/roasty malt. A bit, woody is not the word, but itís close. Thereís an almost strawberry note to go with the very rich malts. Despite all the malt itís not all that sweet. Tho certainly not dry. Hops dance around in the background. Maybe thereís a chocolate hint. Itís very "fresh", fruit wise. Really good, if youíre in a malty mood.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly cloudy reddish brown color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is bready with a bit of toast coming through and just a hint of burnt caramel. Taste is a bit spicy and toasted, with a nice little bite to it. Not bad.

all in all, very disappointing. thereís a little hop edge (which is intriguing), but this is not what a scotch ale ought to taste like. plus, the selection of malts doesnít seem right--this almost seems like a brown ale. too watery/thin. with apologies to black raven, whose beer i usually LOVE, this is a misfire, even if itís the only misfire iíve tried from them.
