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.

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.

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.

Sampled at the 3rd Annual "Between the Bluffs" Beer and Cheese Festival in La Crosse, WI. Appearance: tan head, clear brown body. No carbonation. Aroma is mild oakiness, mild chocolate, kinda weak. Flavor is chocolate, mild peatiness, oak cask, light coffee. Palate is a little dry, sweet tangy finish. Moderate mouthfeel. Overall, I don’t usually like scotch-style ale but this is really well done.

This was my favorite of the day. It poured a dark amber that was almost brown. The aroma was deep caramel and vanilla. The flavor had milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Not a bad scoch ale

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

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.

From the tap @ Great Dane in Madison. Dark, nutty brown in color. Medium body. Smooth feel and taste. Not that much of a meal as some other dark beers are. Very good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a thin-lacing wispy off-white head. Aroma of sweet earthy caramel malt with lightly smoky peaty complexity. Body starts with a viscous sweet dark caramel maltiness with some light fruity esters and a full, yet smooth finish with lingering seaweed and smoke. A very nice Scotch ale.

On tap at JPDIPSO’s: Pours a dark copper with a thin, wispy, off-white head. Aroma has some dry, peaty and caramel malty notes. Body starts with some mildly sweet caramel malt and dry peaty flavor with a thin palate and finishes with a touch of English hops. A pretty average Scotch ale.
