Keg @ Boscos, LR. Deep amber pour with a small head. The aroma thankfully isn’t as badly afflicted by diacetyl as other Boscos beers are. Some nutty peanut butter, roasted malt, chocolate. The flavor is similarly nutty and sweet. Light bitterness on the finish. Mediocre.

One of my favourites at Boscos. My goto if the special beers are more hoppy. Fav here is the Oatmeal stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark nutty amber with a thin spotty head. The aroma is dark malty and peaty though not necessarily sweet, though there is a bit of raisin in there. The taste is clean and light with a sweet light molasses-like maltiness, a touch of peat, a touch of raisin, and an oddly dry dusty finish. It’s just not assertive enough, nor big enough. Needs more of ’something’ and not to be so ’middle of the road’, though I guess that’s hard to do with a scotch ale as it is...

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 On tap at Boscos in Memphis, TN. Poured a dark brown with white to off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and nuts, maybe some smoke. Taste is very smooth with caramels and nuts. This is actually one of my favorite Scottish Ales. Almost like an Imperial or Porter. Very good.
