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

andrewje41 (444) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle split pour. Pours really dark with a sweet, nutty aroma. Malt flavor up front, and really sweet. Some caramel and nutty flavor with a smooth finish. Flavorful. Pretty good beer.

gmellison (423) - Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap in la conner. Pours a dark reddish brown with a moderate white head. Aroma is nuts and chocolate. Flavor is rich malts, earth, chocolate and caramel. Kind of boring

Hanuta06 (327) - Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Serving: from tap at La Fiamma Wood Fire Pizza. Aroma: light malt and lemon. Appearance: small, creamy, light brown, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Murky, light-brown/dark-amber body. Taste: lightly sour and citrusy initial taste and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: light-to-medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Great palate and appearance. Unique flavor.

DuffMan (6749) - 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 I’d come back to.

maxwelldeux (3665) - 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. Doesn’t taste too complex. It’s fine.

two7offsuit (170) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pours brown with a thin head. Aromas of malt and caramel with a similar flavor profile.

KyotoLefty (6464) - 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 (770) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Peaty nose. Light flavours of roasted nut, caramel, toffee. Fairly tame, balanced.

Smurf2055 (1399) - 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 (2335) - 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.
