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.

A bit sweet and malty for this type but alcohol was there. It was a good tasting beer.

A nice example of the style. Pleasantly sweet but definite alcohol. I enjoyed the beer, but not something I can drink a lot of. This is an occasional beer - something reserved for a special night.

Always like this one. Rich caramel color and flavor characterize this ale. Nice alcohol presence with the sweet malt. Smooth finish that lingers well.

tap at Brewpub-Fitchburg, WI-pours a copper hue with a small whtie head around glass edge. Malty sweet aroma-I didn’t get any peat, but i did get the dark caramel. i got maple surup also in the aroma. Big malty flavors consisting of maple surup, sliglty vineous, and caramelly. Big beer and was a little hot on the alchohol. Not a bad rendition of this style

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".

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.

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.

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.
