Draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca. Pours a deep reddish brown nearly opaque. Veyr thin white head. Snifter pour. The aroma is scotch, malts, dark fruits and dark breads. The taste is very malty at first slowly transitioning to a scotch booziness. You also get the dark fruits, some spice, leather and nuts. Finish is clean and slight alcohol. Medium body. Decent carbonation. Overall a pretty good scotch ale.

Draft... Murky, toasted caramel pour generates a small, creamy, off-white head. Fruity and sweet the bouquet consists mainly of red apple and cotton candy.. Medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is an overly sweet intermingling of toffee, cotton candy and minerals. Finishes sticky-sweet, fairly flat, and bland - followed by a buttery toffee aftertaste. Meh.

My Bottom Line:
Caramel and candied berries seem to be pricked by fennel in this slick Scotch Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy dark brown.
-Malt flavors could be better polished.
-There is no sign of alcohol, which is a plus.
-This is probably the antithesis of their Lemon Meringue Berliner Weisse. I like brewpubs who can branch out to far ends of different flavor spectrums.
-This is not one of those portly Scotch Ales.
-The fennel-like herbaceousness is perhaps peat smoked malt, but it does come off as more herb-like than usual.

On tap at the brewpub.

On draft at the Buddha. Light brownish color, good carbonation with a nice fluffy head. Aroma has hints of roasted malts, caramel and the faintest hint of apples. Flavor is nice and creamy, and overly sweet. A really easy drinking scotch ale.
