Draft. Gentle aromas of soap, peaty malts, a little sharp on the palate but descending to malty sweetness.

jrodooo5 (804) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Has a very good copper pour with a big fluffy head that slowly becomes a nice ring of lacing. The aroma is of soft caramel malt. The taste is quite similar. Iím typically a huge scotch fan but there seems to be something lacking here. There isnít much sweetness and the finish is slightly harsh. Itís ok but there are far better scotch ales out there!

devilben02 (265) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Pours from the bottle with a rich, reddish-amber color that is not unlike a brown ale, and it is topped by a fizzy tan head. Light, sweat, bready malts are most pronounced in the aroma, but there is also some earthy, almost metallic character. The bread and light caramel sweetness is likewise prominent in the flavor, but the finish is loaded with the earthy/metallic/spice hop character, which isnít pleasant. The medium body and fine carbonation donít distract from the flavors, which is unfortunate in this case. Overall, the beer doesnít showcase the malts well, and the unpleasant finish makes me not want to come back for more.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the brewery. The menu claimed this as an 110/-Scotch Ale. But the name is identical. Beautiful clear amber pour with decent ring of offwhite head. Malty sweetness with just a slight twinge of alcohol heat on the nose. A slight peatyness plays very well with the biscuity maltiness. Enjoyed quite a bit.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Emeister84 (752) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Aromas of cocoa, roasted coffee, nuts, toffee, toast, earth, and slight citrus fruit. Clear, very dark brown with red highlights, the head is khaki and retains moderately. Light sweetness, complemented by perceptible strength, and some bitter roastiness and smoke; great balance. Medium body, low carbonation, and a dry, toasty finish with some lingering fruity and nutty flavors.
