Poured from a bottle with a brown color and a very light white head. Has a scotch aroma. Taste is also strongly scotch and sweet. Has a nice full body flavor and goes down smooth. I enjoy scotch ales and this is a very enjoyable one.

On tap at the abbey. Ours dark brown with a thin lasting head. Flavor is nicely rich and hoppy, with a real smooth smoke taste.

pours an opaque brown with a medium tan head. aroma is caramel malt and a little bread. Taste is really good. A hint of burnt toast, a hint of chocolate. creamy mouth feel. long slightly bitter finish. The alcohol is not obtrusive considering the high percentage. Really well done. Good beer!

Pours clear dark amber with a medium sized beige head and sticky lacing. Aroma toasted malts, molasses and toffee. Taste is sweet caramel, smokey, chocolate and woody
One of my least favorite styles, but I like this and could drink it everyday. Easy drinking, no noted alcohols.

Dark Horse is one of my favorite breweries; Scotch ale is one of my favorite styles. How the hell have I not picked this up until now!?! This thing has all the appreciable aspects one would want from a scotch: peat, caramel, chocolate, rum, and raisin. Warming alcohol is subdued. Excellent offering.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Everything here is quite nice and properly balanced for a scotch ale. A bit of McEwan’s classic comes through on the nose and the finish. A nice level of sweetness throughout.
