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.

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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 A big session beer? Brown color, grainy aromas. Roasty, nutty, caramel sweetness. Lots of flavors masks what seems to be a fairly high abv.

Ordered the IPA but they had unfortunately run out. 2nd straight visit that this happened. Not being from Madison, this was of course a disappointment. I then ordered the ESB, but what I got was warm, flat and sour. I was told that it was a cask beer and that most people don't like it. I have a hard time believing it was supposed to be that way. Anyway, I do have positive things to say about Great Dane. Great place and definitely above average beer. Stone of Scone started off poorly with a stale, not pleasant aroma. Red body with head almost fully diminished. Flavor is rich with a relatively high alcohol presence. Despite the aesthetic shortcomings, a very solid and tasty brew.

It seems to be less harsh and nutty than other Scottish Ales Ive had. A nice surprise.
