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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours mid-to-dark brown, quite sweet, thin, a lot of caramel, some peatiness, wood... this style works for me when it’s rich and smokey, but when thin I find it cloying, as I did here. Very simple Scotch ale.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Head diminishes quickly, minimal nose. Nice dark copper color with a bit of haziness. I marked it down on palate due to a bit of startling fizziness on the tip of the tongue, but that fades to a full bodied softer texture overall. Dark toasty/roasted grain flavors that last. Strong, dark and enjoyable overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. This beer pours a clear dark copper color with a medium khaki head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with a peaty malt character and notes of caramel and dark fruit. The finish is slightly medicinal with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft - Heavy toffee malts on the nose, with some bourbon and red fruit. Cloudy dark amber with a minimal head. By far one of the better Scotch Ales. Bourbon more than scotch, but lots of caramel and toffee, along with enough wood and a light bitterness to add complexity.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with medium head. Aromas of roasted malts and cereal. Flavors of lightly smoked roasted malts. A bit thin and overly bitter.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hideous. There’s is just nothing here to make me want to drink this. Thin, lacking in everything....a step above Bud. Maybe.
