3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle thanks to llcooldave. Cola colored body with tight, creamy tan head that’s lasting and leaves good lacing. Some stone fruits and a bit of alcohol on the nose. Flavor is some roasted malts, fruity, alcohol, a hint of smoke and a mild bitter finish. No peat and not very Scotch Ale like.

"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.

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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Pours a deep red/brown with thin off-white head that rapidly dissipates. Aroma of mesquite, raisins, a sweet smelling Scotch. A burst of flavor up front, rich malts, slight sweet smokiness, and a bit of alcohol. No detectible hop presence, but finishes a tad dry. A pretty serious Scotch Ale.
