Maddog (392) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle purchased in San Diego. Ive waited over a year to try this beer and it does not disappoint. A strange and different beer. Big, malty, smoky with even a sourness to it. Aromas of whiskey barrel and the pour is cloudy, dark amber. Not sure where the tartness is coming from, but Im liking it especially as it warms.

brokensail (10841) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle @ Brewbies 2014. Dark brown pour with a small khaki head. Smells of roasted malt, apple, peat, and mushrooms. Sharp alcohol, some caramel, and old, dusty chocolate. Not a terribly pleasant aroma and the flavor isnt much better. Acidic apple with a weird mushroom earthiness. Peat, soap, and harsh whiskey. Mild roasted malt, some caramel, and cocoa dust. Scroll past.

[ Keg ][ Brewbies 2014 ][ 4oz ][ Brewbies Flared Mini Pint ][ Free ][ 3/1/14 ]
>> Clear deep red pour, low foam. Nose is really intense Scotch barrel, brown sugar, tomato, mildew, mushrooms. Taste is ash, mildew, uncooked mushrooms, formaldehyde. Chemical, dizzying.

500 c&c from CraftShack. Pours dark clear copper (strong light) with a transient, slight beige head. Aroma is rather expended fireworks than scotch! Near full bodied. Flavor is charcoal/sulpher, with oak and peat. Which sort of explains the fireworks aroma. Certainly not what was expected, but explains the relatively low rating. With time I think the Islay is dominating, so its something like Brewdog Paradox. Tho perhaps lighter. Another challenging ale from Stone.

Ferris (3926) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle - Malty, oaky, fruity and oh so complex. Clear amber with a beige head. Lots of wood, bit of smoke and long oaky finish.

mcberko (6333) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber / mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of whiskey barrels upfront and a little caramel. Flavour brings out loads of smoked whiskey notes -- very bacony -- without any peaty notes. Very smoky, islay dominated and dry, without any residual sweetness at first, but some sweetness comes through later. I thought this was better at first, but it gets tiresome after a while. Okay, but not that great.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Delicious, smooth, and very drinkable for 12.5% ABV with an amazingly rich whiskey aroma and taste. I really enjoyed this Scotch Ale!!
