Condensed review: ----- Appearance. Full Boar has a deep dark amber color with a tan-colored head remained which didnít last long. ----- Smell. This beer has a very dark malty aroma with a nice strong roasty sensation. ----- Taste. Full Boar has a warm roasted flavor and with a hint of toasted malts. It is very malty and slightly sweetFull Boar has a great Scotch ale taste. ----- Mouthfeel. A creamy sensation from the carbonation manifests nicely as a medium-bodied beer that is full of flavor. ----- Drinkability. This is a pleasant and easy to drink scotch ale that gives you a nice warm feeling on a chilly evening. ----- Full review: http://beer47.com/2009/02/devils-canyon-f type: on-tap

badhack (534) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Tastes like rich chocolate, dark chocolate, smoke and all are present through a long, smooth finish. Very strong nutty/roasted nut flavor. There is some sweetness, more fruity than sugary. I like the flavor profile quite a bit. Herbal bitter hops to balance, maybe stronger than I would have liked. This reminds me more of an imperial stout than a scotch ale. Dark brown/red, clear, tan head that dissipates. Moderate to thin palate.

A solid scotch ale. Some thickness and sweetness but a good balance. Not really my style but nice nonetheless.

olio (9380) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
65 cl bottle (no label on the bottle).
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Nutty aroma, malty, some grain, faint smoky notes and wood. Flavor is also malty with caramel and sugary sweetness, grain, bread and subtle chocolaty notes. A bit high carbonation, decent.

robertjm (853) - Albany, California, USA - APR 18, 2016
(22oz. bottle) - Big rocky off-white head, which collapses. Dark reddish body when held up to a light. Malty aroma. Flavors of grain and a bit of light brown sugar. A tad of bitterness on the tail end for balance. Very nice job!

Pours brown with hints of red and a small white head. A complex nose malt, dust and peat. Peat with smoke and just a hint of coffee. Smooth with medium body. Sweet and just a bit salty. Very nice.

dambor (429) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
Pours dar brown with ruby reflexes. Aroma: bread crust dominating, dark malt, some coffee. Taste: the scotch taste unveils itself in the taste (not aroma), dark malt, nice happy palate.

ryecatcher (1354) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Can. Pours a deep ruddy brown, creamy tan head with solid retention. Nose is smoky, malt, iodine (like an Islay Scotch... go figure). Mouth is creamy and mildly sweet up front, nutty, caramel, smoke and some toasted oak. A little thinner and smokier than I like my wee heavy. But not bad.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
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.
