UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Tap: ugly, woody brown color with an opaque center & moderately opaque edges. Small, almost-tan head is quick to fade, leaving almost no lacing behind. Aroma is underwhelming... sweet caramel, light apple skins & grapes, mild woodiness, touch of brashness from the rye. Almost like a more mild/timid Scotty. Taste is full of rye - very dry with lots of earthy spice to it. Lightly tart & sweet cherry skins, heavy wood flavors with some booziness & a little grape, faint caramel, & toast in the finish. Not an improvement over the original Scotty, in my opinion.

On tap at Ashley’s---this one has an identity crisis for sure--it pours almost opaque dark brown with a thin and quickly dissipating beige head---malty and bread are followed by a mild bitter earthy rye finish--was a bit disappointing

Tap at The Oak Cafe. Pours a deep red color with a thick creamy head that lingers a while. Very malty and spicy aroma, kinda nice. Taste is caramel malt mixed with rye bread. It sounds better than it tastes though. The flavors don’t seem to work together well here and I can’t really explain it. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a decent beer but it should be better. I wouldn’t order it again.

Dark brown, wondrous constant head, well-edged in the light. A very masked aroma, but a bit of nondescript spice. Underwhelming; Scotty with some upped spice and diminished booziness. The palate is filling, expansive, with just a bit of puckering. Was expecting a bit more, but it’s enjoyable.
