With a similar malt profile to its more famous cousin Scotch whisky, this smooth, strong beer is complex with a lingering hop finish.

5oz taster at the brewpub. Pretty dull scotch ale. Not a lot going on here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6163) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, and Faysal. Deep amber hue, low head that forms a persistent ring. Aroma is oaky with some peatiness and over-ripe apples. Lots of raw oak on the palate, with sweet malts underlying, sweetly peaty, again with an oxidized apple quality. Not bad, but not one Iíd come back to.

maxwelldeux (3070) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a smallish cream-colored head on it. Nose is very light, with just a bit of caramel in there. Taste is a tad sweet up front, but then settles into a moderately dry caramel flavor. Doesnít taste too complex. Itís fine.

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2013
Tap at Marciero. Dark brown almost black, low head. Scotch ale nose, caramel, lightly vineous. Light flavor, sweet and caramel, some raisins, but not really all that much malt flavor. OK.

RumRunner101 (676) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Peaty nose. Light flavours of roasted nut, caramel, toffee. Fairly tame, balanced.

Smurf2055 (1303) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Deep ruby with an off white head. Smell is fruity, heavy fruits, typical scotch ale smells. Taste heavy, sweet, smooth, creamy and spice. Thicker to medium bodied. Very well done.

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - APR 28, 2013
Another tough style to do well - again unfortunately BB come up short. Thin, malty biscuit and caramel. Its just there and never really develops in to something special. Elevator music in a glass.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours mid-to-dark brown, quite sweet, thin, a lot of caramel, some peatiness, wood... this style works for me when itís rich and smokey, but when thin I find it cloying, as I did here. Very simple Scotch ale.

Bookseeb (95) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Appearance pours a dark amber brown having a dissipating thin head leaving nill lace. Smell of mainly sweet caramel and light roasted malt and dark fruit with no peatiness. Taste again of the sweeter malt having a slight acrid from the roast with no or very little peat. Mouthfeel is medium with maybe a slightly high carbonation. Not much complexity to this beer, just a simple scotch.
