3/20/2011: Green Flash / Pizza Port Carlsbad / Stone Highway 78 Scotch Ale... Aroma: Really nice caramelized maltiness with undertones of coffee, cacao nibs, and milk chocolate; just a touch smoky, too. Appearance: Burnished deep red-orange color with a large, frothy beige-colored head that quickly gathers from the generous carbonation; nearly opaque with nice, shiny highlihgts. Flavor: Sweet, syrupy maltiness infused with heavily caramelized goodness along with some roasted malts, molasses, tobacco, and chocolate nibs; rum-bourbony booze in the finish with just a splash of bitterness to round everything out and keep the sweetness in check. Palate: Medium-full body; smooth texture; slightly syrupy body; really nice mouthfeel with some heft to it. Overall: Delicious! This is an impressive Scotch Ale that definitely fits what I like and expect from a good one!

12 fl. oz. bottle (8.8% Alc/Vol) from Dutchs in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #392 for this beer.

Forgot I even had this. 2011 collab bottle. Nutty and sweet with a bit of booze and a range of toasted caramel and toffee flavors. Very nice. Never had a chance to try it when it was younger, though.

Pours a cloudy brown amber with a small short lived beige head. Aroma and Taste of sweet dark caramel malt, raisins, a bit of dry dark fruit figs, plums with some yeast, brown sugar, mild bitterness and sweet alcohol esters. Palate is medium to full body, smooth and a sweet sticky mouth feel. Finishes with sweet caramel malt, raisins, dark fruit, plums, sweet sour flavor, yeast, ending is mildly bitter with a dry alcohol. Lingering notes of caramel and raisin sweetness. Overall I found this to be a very well made and tasty brew.

12oz bottle shared by my buddy Ryan. Not sure how long hes had this bottle but its definitely mellowed out. The beer as a whole is great and I actually prefer a mellowed out scotch ale.

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish/deep caramel color. Little head. The aroma is full of dark fruits and toffee. The taste is a little thin. Has some toffee follow in the taste. An average scotch ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Really solid for the style. Warm ruby amber in color, caramel sweetness, nice hoppy spice to balance, rich body, sweet finish. Excellent collabo.

Really solid scotch ale. In fact, this is what I think of when I am told "scotch-ale." Malty, sweet, rich, right on point for the style. Good collaboration.

Bottle from Stone Brewing store: Appeared as a dark mahogany amber hue with minimum layer of film for a head. Aroma is well balanced with lightly toasted caramel malts being the main attraction while a note of coffee lingers in the faint background. The taste is intensely sweet with a thick and heavy base of caramel malts that give off tastes of sugar, but there is a nice usage of hops and yeast that focuses all the energy on the malt of this Scotch ale. One of the best Scotch ales Ive had, and considering how Scotch ales are my least favorite, this beer still holds its grounds.
