3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mahogany brown in color... Aroma of peated malts, smoke, tobacco, humidor... Flavor is fairly thin initially, smoke, peated malts and tobacco, would be pretty bland if it weren't for the barrel aging... Lots of peat on finish... Minimal carbonation, almost like drinking scotch...Decent

"nice use of peat, along with a tobacco aspect to the aroma and flavor that i really dug. if it weren’t for those things, this would be uninspired, but it turned out a nice malt bomb if a little thin."

12oz bottle -
Aroma and flavor had some oxidation and while sometimes I think oxidation can be nice in certain styles (including scotch ales), because this was an ale of what thought was on the "delicate" side, the oxidation didn’t help it. But, still a really nice beer.

September 8th, 2012 - Also on display at Green Flash’s fair weather festival was a collaborative scotch ale - strangely dark for the drinking environment, but a sticky, boozy addition nonetheless. It has all the smells and scents of a good scotch ale: dark malt, brown sugar, caramel, apple and pumpkin spice, and a heavy whiff of alcohol. And the flavor has it too, with a heavy emphasis on burnt caramel and cacao nibs, giving this brew a whole spectrum of sweet flavors that it can play on: dark fruits to chocolate and back again. At this point in my craft beer drinking career, this is a new and novel approach to the scotch ale, with a nicely balanced level of alcohol that satisfies the drinkers and keeps excessive sugars at bay.

A- Pours a deep mahogany with a thin, off white head.
S- Caramel, fig, dark fruit, raisin.
T- Lots of fig and raisin, grainy undertones, more of a bitter finish than i am used to with scotch ales but it rounds the sweetness out nicely.
M- Thick with medium carbonation.
D- I enjoyed this beer a lot. Usually i’m not a fan of scotch ales (although I can definitely appreciate them) but I think this was one of the better ones in recent memory.
