Bottle shared by shig, poured a dark cloudy orange, aromas of feint smoke, roasted malt, and caramel. Flavors are the same, solid beer that was very sessionable.

DarkElf (3028) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 6, 2008
22-Jan-08 (Draft: Kassik’s Kenai Brew Stop in Nikiski, AK) Moderately hazy, amber-brown body is capped by a half inch of pale-tan head that settles to a wide ring, leaving plenty of patchy and stringy lacing on the glass. Medium sweet-smelling and caramely nose is only lightly aromatic, but these tiny taster glasses aren’t exactly ideal for appreciating the bouquet. Very fruity and caramely on the palate with medium sweetness, but a gentle hop flavor and light bitterness for nice balance. Medium "plus" body thins a bit in the finish and could use a bit more weight in general. Overall, for what "strong scotch" ale implies to me, the beer isn’t quite as rich or full-bodied as I expected, but it’s still a very enjoyable beer. (Note: this won a bronze medal at the 2008 World Beer Cup for the Strong Scotch Ale category, so that shows you what I know! A warm, heart-felt congrats to you, Frank and Debara!)

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 25, 2011
22 oz bottle. Clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, bread dough and light smoke. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, more bread dough and a slight acidic smoke. Medium body with average to mild carbonation and an oily, coating mouth feel. This is a nice Scotch ale, alcohol is fairly well hidden and it’s got good drinkability.

MikeJslc (687) - USA - JAN 25, 2013
Amber, clear, off white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malt, some caramel, a little buttery note. Flavor is crystal malt sweet with some grainy dryness in finish, and again a buttery note. A little on the light side for a wee heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer kicks you in the shorts. Not my favorite type of beer but very flavorful and easy to drink. A little rich for me to drink on a regular basis. It is a fun beer to add to a sauna for a nice buzz.
