Pours an opaque brown with a medium tan head...lt sediment throughout. Aroma has roasty malt and a bit of spicy hops...some peaty notes. Flavor actually has some scotchy qualities...roasty with good bitterness and a woody note. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, earthy finish that has some tea notes.

blklab2007 (2062) - Connecticut, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottle poured a dark amber color with a thin coating of off white head. Aroma has caramel, dark fruit, malt, and sweetness. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation on the low side. Flavor has dark fruit, malt, dark sugar, medium bitterness, nuts, and a bit of a bite on the finish. Big and malty but with plenty of sweetness.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2012
Tasted on 4/4/12 from a 12oz bottle obtained in a recent BIF. Pours dark auburn with an average tan head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is bread malt with some green hops underlying, and maybe just a touch of raisin. The flavor is nicely malty with bread and some cereal up front, moving to the lightly bitter, but very green hops and the same lightly sweet touch of raisin. The body is nearly full with average carbonation and a medium finish that has some of the green hops and just a hint of raisin still.

Bottle split with Tim the Mullet. Pours a somewhat hazy brown color, medum head that dissipated quickly. Aromas of bread, cinnamon, caramel, fruit, and ginger. Taste is nutty with a smoky character but overall a fruity palate with mollases and rich plum. Warming.

Drake (9953) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle courtesy of GhostFace. Thanks! Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Earthy, peaty aroma with some toffee and mild hops. The taste is very earthy with tart berries as if it may be off. Some treacle and toffee notes as well. Medium bodied, high carbonation and pretty disappointing.

Chevami (2) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2012 does not count
Not a bad Scotch Ale. It seemed to lean toward a medium bodied average beer for this category. Lively carbonation. The high octane 9% a.b.v. has that going in it’s favor ;>} Paid almost $12.00 for a six pack. Would like to see Lake Louie Brewing provide brew date information on the bottle or label, but perhaps since it’s a seasonal brew it may not matter?

Travlr (14467) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you! Dark purple maroon color, thin beige head, delicate lacing. Aroma of intense caramel. Taste is smooth and sweet caramel with a bit of bitter chocolate and light spice. Not bad.
