COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The life of an old-time cutter? Well, it wasn’t always long but it could be just long enough to benefit generations. Floyd McCoy is a fine example. He cut around central Indiana until injured by a limestone slab in 1959. And while he finally succumbed to his wounds, it wasn’t before starting a fine legacy of his own, by grandfathering one of the founders of Cutters Brewing Co. Our salute is a Scotch Ale worthy of his name. Floyd’s Folly pours a nice amber color with a light tan head and boasts of full-roasted malt and caramel flavors. One taste and you’ll be thanking old Floyd, too.

Purchased a growler at the brewery. Pours a deep amber with good clarity. The off-white head slowly disipates to a thin ring. The aroma is earthy with malt, cola, peat, and a mild fruitiness. Malty flavor with a low hop bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation. The finish is fairly dry. Very nice Scottish ale.

Dark red pour with frothy light tan head that dissipated quickly. Sweet with hint of chocolate and caramel with a slightly bitter malty aftertaste. Decent scottish ale.

16oz can, from Big Red in Indianapolis. Canned on 4/18/14. Mostly clear very dark red color. Finger of khaki head. Leaves good, thicker sheets of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Good full mouthfeel, with a creamy texture. Lightly dry finish. Good vanilla, caramel, dark fruit aromas. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet, kind of earthy. Just a light bit of alcohol warmth. Good chocolate aromas. Impressive scotch ale. Good to enjoy with my dinner.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy with a frothy top finely sized tan colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-hazy dark cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty bready and dough. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of bitter sweet hops malt and bread dough. An OK brew just nothing special.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2014
Clear brown color with a thin beige head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, sweet caramel and mild floral hops. The finish is sweet with a short grainy malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

12oz bottle. Pretty sure there is an infection setting in. Aroma has a faint acetic twang, a loss of other elements and a light musk. Flavor not as bad. Still lots of caramel coming out but it’s more like sweetness and emptiness after that. Would like to retry a fresh better bottle.

tap at Three Fires Sep 13, 2013 - Pours dark amber with minimal head and a malty aroma with some alcohol and a touch of fruit. The flavor is sweet with caramel and some mild hops bitterness that carries into the finish. It’s medium bodied. Pretty good.

wlajwl (3764) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Aroma is fruit, spices and a rather odd tangy twang. The flavor is fruit, garden vegetables/salad, spices and a tangy/tart/sourish finish.

Bottle. Poured a dark mahogany with ruby highlights and little to no head. Peat dominates the aroma, with some fruitiness in the background. Predominant flavors are chocolate, toffee, and brown sugar. These give way to a peated, almost acrid aftertaste, which I am not much a fan of. Thin body, but pretty smooth for such a high alcohol beer. Overall impression is that this is a pretty good beer and hews close to style, but nothing overwhelmingly impressive.

12oz bottle pours a medium brown with off white head. Mildly sweet aroma of malts. Body is a bit thin. Flavor I get that same sweet malt. Very smooth but for me a bit thin. Overall decent but not the best.
