Full Boar Scotch Ale won First Place Gold in the English and Scottish Strong Ale Category at the 2003 California State Fair Commercial Craft Brewing Competition. This ale is deeply malted and caramel apparent with overtones of chocolate and a slight hint of a mild, smoky flavor.

Dangerously drinkable, but somewhat thin in comparison to other ’wee heavy’s’ I’ve had. The roast/chocolate malts are a little too noticeable for me. Very clean, probably down to American ale yeast. I would certainly try this again though, and would very much like to see it on cask... Overall a very clean American take on a wee heavy.

Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Dark red brown with an off white head. Dark toffee with smoke and nutty notes. Tart with funky yeast, not sure if this is intentional. Berries with whisky barrel. Decent but perhaps not in the best condition.

Tap at the Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Poured a clear medium brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is light sweet malt, creamy caramel. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth creamy malt, nutty palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation

Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark caramel amber. Nose is fishy yeast, odd oily leaves, vines, herbal,… Taste is fish guts, heavily herbal, too much soy sauce, burned herbs, smoke, leaves, caramel,… Way too much of these notes, like a burned mix of soy sauce & fish sauce with herbs almost,.. Body is herbal soy sauce,… Powdery,… Not a fan at all, not for me.

Bottle. Brownish red beer with a strong head. It has a sour aroma with a sour and fruity flavour, and hints of smokiness. Overall a reasonable scotch ale, which seems to mean sour or smokey flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gunnar (7123) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours almost clear deep mahogany with a small creamy beige head. Musty malty aroma, tobacco, sugars and some chocolate. Taste is more tobaccoish malty, dirty dark sugars, on the sweet side overall with a light smooth mouthfeel, nice enough.

Just an ok scotch ale, nothing memorable. Pours a deep red color with a tan head. Smells of malts, melon. Taste is pretty much just malty, with a hint of vanilla and melon. Had in the bottle.

On tap. Pours black, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee and dark malts. Taste of the same plus some light cinnamon and dried fruit. Like Christmas morning :)

Bottle (22oz $6): Dark brown with nice off white head that disappears fairly quickly. Aroma is roasted malts and some sweetness... Carmel. Taste is the same. Medium to full bodied. Good.
