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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 heís had this bottle but itís 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.

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 Iíve had, and considering how Scotch ales are my least favorite, this beer still holds its grounds.

Bottle from Russellís Liquors. Pours brown with a small head that leaves no lacing. Lots of malt on the nose. Sweet on the tongue with a touch of peat. Finishes clean. Solid but I should have drunk it last year.
