3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half growler. Deep copper-brown and clear. Thin film of creamy bubbles on top. Nose is earthy toffee with hints of coffee and ash. Tastes of rich dark toffee, smoldering hay, peppery green herb and a touch of over-ripe apple. Medium-heavy body has medium carbonation and a nice balance. Not a stickler for style categories, but this really seems to have quite a bit of peat-smoked malt, so Iím guessing it should be a "Scottish" and not a "Scotch" as currently listed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Whole Foods in Vienna, VA. Clear, dark rusty orange with light khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of sweet heavy malt--caramel, toffee and bread. Taste of caramel, toffee an alcohol. Sweet, even for a Scotch ale. Full/medium body and medium/low carbonation. Not the best Scotch ale; not very complex and lacking dark fruit characteristics. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
