3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: caramel and toffee, tons of malts, fairly sweet. Pours a dark brown/burgundy, somewhat hazy, off-white head with fair retention. Huge malt flavor, packed with caramel, dextrinous and chewy, malty sweetness, toasty and bready. Full body and low-medium carbonation, smooth, creamy, heavy on the palate. Great brew.

Thanks to northernbrews for sharing this. Pours a nice dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark dried fruit, bread, and spices. Flavor is quite nice with a bit of sweetness and chocolate to top it off. Mouthfeel is slick, but finishes dry. Very nice and looking forward to the bottle I have in the cellar.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Killer Scotch Ale. pours a deep amber/brown with some good lacing. Aroma is great, lots of burnt notes, toffee, vanilla, chocolate, and alcohol. Flavor is a great mix of dark and sweet chocolate, with lots of toffee notes as well. Some nice touches of sour cherry and caramel. Super rich, with a slight alcohol burn. I liked this one a lot. Another winner from Cigar City.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is primarily of sweet malts & cherries. The taste is very good. The malts are delicious. They are sweet but not too sweet. I taste a little yeast but the cherry flavor over powers the yeast in the finish. That balances things out and doesn?t make the Big Sound real bitter. I really enjoyed this drink. I would gladly have it again.

75cl bottle, thistle glass.
Pours a dark brown, with a dissipating off-white head.
Smells of sweet malts, toffee and cherry.
Tastes of sweet roasted malt, cherries and coffee. Finishes with a slightly bitter funk.
I think I’m in love with this rather complex beauty.

Tasted from draft. Pours a dark brown with off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel, biscuits and syrup. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet. Dark fruits of raisins and plums, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, figs, biscuits, earthy flavors. Definitely one of the best scotch ales I've had.
