Overall I like this brew. Dark coppery color, little in the way of head, not too carbonated. Aroma s weak in general. Some Hons f sweetness and malt, little hops. Flavor is smooth and sweet, some caramelized malt character. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. A little bitterness reminds me of tea. Tasty and a go to when I am in Madison. On tap at the downtown pub.

Kind of a by the numbers homebrewish scotch ale. Too sweet. Sorta one dimensional. Dark brown. Medium to large off white creamy frothy head. A little thin.

From a growler filled at the brewpub. Brown pour with an off white head that lingers. Smells of caramel, toffee and slight sour. Taste follows. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Tap at the downtown location. Unfiltered amber-brown. Thick off-white head. Sweet buttery homebrew shab aroma. Hollow medium body, odd peat smoke. True to style, if the style was a bottom of the barrel budget Scottish beer.

Tap at the brewpub. Orange amber pour with a small clingy head. Lots of caramel sweetness. Some bread. Quite tasty - and very drinkable.

Imperial pint at the downtown Dane. Dark red-brown color, bubbles, practically no foam on top. The flavor and texture are the best part of Stone of Scone. The flavor is sweet caramel and still not overpowering. The body is medium and refreshing, extraordinarily drinkable and balanced out with just the right amount of carbonation. I really like this beer and it would get even higher marks if it had a more detectable aroma.

Big enough to take a bite out of. Distinctive caramel on the aroma and sweet taste. A very full body. Could enjoy multiples of this one if I didn’t have several sampler glasses in front of me.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is copper/brown with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of burnt caramel and earth. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of toasted nuts, vanilla, and light brown sugar. Overall body is moderate and finishes with extremely light bitterness.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
A mahogany copper ale with almost no head. In aroma, sweet butterscotch with light boiled veggies. In mouth, a smooth sweet caramel, scotch, light herbal hops, a bit light. On tap at Madison airport location, Jan 22 2012.

An excellent beer. Was pleasantly surprised by the malting complexity of this brew. Had it at the Wausau Great Dane on tap. The aroma was inviting but not overly chocolate. Taste was a good array of malts and caramels, not overly chocolate by any means. A very nice easy drinking ale. Seems to have high ABV as well.
