brokensail (9940) - 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 isn’t much better. Acidic apple with a weird mushroom earthiness. Peat, soap, and harsh whiskey. Mild roasted malt, some caramel, and cocoa dust. Scroll past.

GT2 (7895) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
[ 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.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 19, 2013
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 it’s something like Brewdog Paradox. Tho perhaps lighter. Another challenging ale from Stone.

Ferris (2026) - 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 (5368) - 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.

Shooter42 (124) - California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
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!!

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 27, 2013
