COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the stone upon which Scottish kings were crowned, our Scoth Ale represents a tradition of brewing excellence. You will enjoy a hint of caramel sweetness, a well-rounded flavor, and superior drinkability.

Growler: decent, though bubbly off-white head over a clear plum coloured body. Rich malty nose, with hints of peat, dark caramel, red grapes, and mud. Uneven palate that has some grit and also seems smooth at times. Flavours boast a huge bit of malt, but do have a small hop companion. Toffee and caramel, along with a strage peat/smoke/malt flavour are okay, but nothing to amazing.

Dark Amber Coloring. Caramel.... Not too harsh and not too nutty as some scottish’es tend to be. Or maybe it’s my bad luck.

I can tell I was drunk when I got to this one. My quote stated "Scotch beer. Smells like scotch, taste like people".

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Clear dark ruby/whiskey color, off-white creamy lasting ring around the glass. Coffee/caramel aroma. Sweet coffee liquor taste with some toffee and a fruity sourness. Not bad, but I don’t like the seemingly awkward sourness.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Hard to choose between the Scone or the Black Earth as the Dane’s best beer on the many cold winter nights. The malt and alcohol hits you in the nose right off the bat. Nice deep mahogany/garnet brown. Big malty sweetness balanaced by alcohol bite. A Heath Bar in a glass. Highly quaffable.

MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2004
Good beer not as good as the black earth porter though... light chocolate flavor w/ a touch of bitter hoppy flavor.. mild flavor for a dark beer.. solid carbonation.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Sweet smoked fruitwood nose, malty and tangy, rather light for a scotch ale, but exceptionally drinkable.

I thought this beer was pretty weak, although drinking it in at the Great Dane made it better. Light flavor for a scotch ale. Went down well. Overall, it was OK.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2003
This beer had a purple color and very little head. Both smelled and tasted like grape soda, only smokier. Aftertaste was acidic and bitter. Some of the people I was with remarked on how much they enjoy this beer, but I thought it was awful.

really good. roasted, caramel, nutty, sweet. light flavor, but in the good sense that it's not over-the-top.
