3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a dark, reddish chestnut body with a slender beige head. The aroma is rich and malty with a touch of toffee and hints of the strong alcohol content seeping through. A full bodied ale, the rich, lightly roasted malts continue into the flavor with a surge of caramel midway through. The alcohol is there throughout. Peat smoke enters the picture near the end and lingers well into the finish. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, via Zathrus13. Pours a hazy dark reddish brown under a creamy one finger beige head that fell to a thin film. Aroma is thickly malty, with noticable alcohol, toffee, sherry, light yeast, and a touch of oxidation. Flavor is heavy toffee malt, peated malt, lots of alcohol, light sherry oxidation, some tobacco, yeast and nougat. Mouthfeel is very full bodied but not nearly as sticky and cloying as I expected. A little syrupy, with moderate fine bubbled carbonation. Overall, this was pretty good, thought the hefty alcohol got to be a bit much for me by the end of the bottle. Iíve not been disappointed by this brewery before, but as good as this is, their various stouts that Iíve had from them are much better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color with rudy hints when held to the light. Moderate, but lasting, foamy tan head. Fairly strong toasted malt aroma with raisins, heavy port and dark chocolate in the background. Start of the flavors is again heavy with toasted malts, some dates and dark caramel follow in the middle. Some mild peat and black malt seems to be present in the finish and linger. Almost simple for a scotch ale, but the linger is long and enjoyable.

arbonation and a smooth texture. Slight sweetness in the taste, a hint of alcohol, some smoke and peat. One of the better Scotch ales Iíve had.
