Almost 10% scotch ale? Well alright. Dark amber pour with thinnish light tan head. Smell is sweet super malty, caramel, some fruits, hints of cocoa. Taste is cocoa, caramel malty, rich, cherry fruity, alcohol. I really dig this.

Pours a real murky brown coloring with very little aroma. Is pretty tasty but scotch ales are not my favorite

This is my new favorite beer, which says a lot, since I am an Eliot Ness/Yuengling Amber Lager type guy.

Aroma of red malt, candy sugar, and grape. Dark copper-rubbyish brown with white foam and lace. Rich roast caramel malt flavor with a european hop bitterness that immitates oak charachteristics found in scotch. High viscosity palate, very thick. Overall, extremely solid, very very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brown, light hazy. Brown malty, dry raisin sweetness, some leather, old coffin on nose. Med full bodied, nicely balanced. Sweets (sort of dried plums, some figs..), but enough soft bitters to wipe the palate clean. Round, light oily, abv amazingly hidden (guessed it around 6 before checking the bottle). Light doughy, some soft herbs. Pretty nice scotch ale. Good flavours, deceptively easy. Luckily had just one bottle at hand, could’ve easily ruined tomorow with a bunch of these.

12 oz bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Dark hazy brown, clove and heather aroma. Sweet, not over powered by alcohol, though a bit flat in flavour compared to what I expected. Smokiness is nice
