Not an award winner but a solid beer to be sure. Good color and quite dark in appearance minimal head when poured and is gone fast. Roasty and flavorful. I enjoyed it very much.

Doesn’t seem to have a lot going for it. Not super malty, not super smokey, not too sweet or bitter... I mean you could say it is super balanced and easy to drink for 7.7%. Does get a nice tartness as it warms and you can get a touch of malt.

Nice deep color with ruby around the edges. Foam is quick to fade but leaves a nice residue. Not too strong peat and malt aroma. The taste is again peat and malt but but overpowering. Could be a bit more "peaty" for my tastes. Finished clean and smooth. Nice brew.

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.

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.
