Hazy amber color. Scotch Ale? It’s just a powerful Amber Ale, with sweetish caramel and malt flavor and too much alcohol feeling.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good sized head form a vigorous pour. Nice and thick and creamy. One of the better heads I have seen in a long time. Strange aroma with some berries, toffee and pomegranite. Very fruity aroma for a scotch ale without much peat or smokiness. Color is a bright mahagony red. Somewhat thin palate with roasted grains, bready malts, a bit of peat and some dark fruit. Finishes clean and kind of weak flavored with a bit of lingering toasted bread. Not a very good scotch ale.

Bomber. Clear, darkish copper with a small ring of bubbles. Nose of alcohol, toffee and dusty grain. Flavor is caramel and plum with some light earthiness, minty alcohol, and peppery spice. Medium-heavy body is smoothly carbonated and slightly sticky.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours a chill hazed copper body with a medium sized beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is malty toffee and caramel, with a hint of spicy rye. Taste has a malty dominance,as expected. A hint of pine hop bitterness. The rye is very prominent, adding a spicy earthiness. No smokiness. I love rye malt in beer, but it seems out of place in a Scotch style. Still, a very tasty and enjoyable ale.

Big thanks to Brigadier. Pours a clear red-amber with a frothy beige head, quickly dissipating to a ring, only temporary lace. Aroma is mostly caramel with a very hot alcohol element to the nose. Flavorwise a delicious malt bomb, starts off with the dark fruits, fig and prune, then the backbone is bittersweet toffee, pumpernickel bread, a bit of smoke. I like this. Full body, a bit sticky on the palate after the fact.
