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.

Had a glass on tap as part of a flight at Ashley’s. Big, but not boozy. Good bite to balance the malt. Nice winter sipper.
