Toffee, Chocolate aroma. No head on mine but might be because of the glass I'm using. Really great tasting. My first Scottish ale so not much experience to compare too but it's a keeper to me.

Smoke aroma with plum and raisins and dark chocolate. Taste is burnt caramel, char, plum/raisin, dark chocolate initially. In the middle of the mouth to the finish scotch flavor ramps up. A nice warming sensation travels from the chest up to the back of your tongue.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Date: June 21, 2015...Occasion: Father’s Day at The Draught House...Vessel: Dogfish Head oversized pint...Appearance: dark mahogany body, dense and imposing as a claymore might be in battle! Head retention seems absent, but the beer was poured by another on draft, so tough to comment on this...Aroma: subtle berry, darkened nuts, and then a malty roundhouse to the nose... Palate: Forceful, round and balanced, with a strong, lasting finish...Taste: plays like a porter, with soda and treacle pairing with a burning malt to produce a clean yet textured experience; nutty and dry at the finish...Overall: enough hops to build at the teeth, smooth and powerful for a 7.7% ABV...a very drinkable Scottish ale, with enough malt to spare...

Bottle in Baltimore. Clear dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is full of caramel, ripe fruits, some bready yeast, nuts and a hint of spices. Flavor is quite sweet, somewhat bitter, smooth and with a huge body. Decent brew.

Bottle@The Butcher’s Block, Sarasota, FL. My very first Scotch Ale and all i can say is, WOW! That was a great brew. Smooth, sweet, and delicious. Hard to describe the flavor but it seems there’s very little to no hops. Leaves a nice after-taste on the palate. Not as complex as a Doppelbock or Porter, but still a nice brew overall. So easily drinkable. Highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Great Divide. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma is heavy in caramel malt with some toast and cereal notes as well. Taste is moderately sweet throughout with a slight bitterness in the finish. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall a pretty good scotch ale.

Not one of Great Divide's best but satisfactory. Finish is almost burnt but packs a nice punch.

Aroma is Rusty metal. Alkali. Salt water. Appearance: black, but not deep. Some lacing, but no head.Taste: plum, charcoal, leather. Pepper. Very Malty. Almost a hint of a whiskey burn at the end. Warming. This beer is growing on me.Feel: carbonation "looks" medium-low ,but the is some nice sizzle. As Don Ho would say, "tiny bubbles".Nice rally, Great Divide.
