Brewed in the classic Scotch Ale style dating back to the 1700ís, with a deep reddish brown color. Full of body, sweetness and flavor. Higher in alcohol content but possessing a smooth and lightly hopped finish. Best served at 45 degrees F in a room temperature pint glass. For the íBig Beerí drinkers among us.

Opaque dark, red brown color with an ample tan head. Smells of lightly spiced honey, some barnyard earthiness. Some light cereal, bready notes. Mainly sweet, but a lingering tinge of almost sourness, bitterness. Alcohol is reasonably present, medium to full bodied with some oiliness. Lighter carbonation. Pretty interesting beer, quite well done.

A big beer. Pours dark reddish brown with a lasting light tan head. Rich, malty, peaty flavor. Gets more flavorful as it warms up.

Shared bottle. Very solid beer. Candy sweetness and malty perhaps a little smoke or am I imagining? Brownish red in color. A bit thin but a very good beer nonetheless. Well done.

12 oz. bottle at my buddyís rehearsal dinner at The Madison Club. Pours a clear reddish-brown with a finger-plus of creamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor are both pretty sugary and sweet. Toffee, cookie, sweet bread, toasted sugar, nuts, and dried fruits. Light-bodied, with soft medium-high carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. Iím normally a little higher on Lake Louie stuff. This isnít my favorite of their offerings.

Sweet for a scotch ale. Lots of hopping on the nose, but simply profiled as hop fruit, crystal malt, and a medium minerality.

Tap by app Iíll keep it short because Iím using my phone. Pours a deep amber not much head but a good Scottish ale. This has been my local tap beer of choice for a couple of years now.

DLD 2013 Bottle Share. Deep brown with some red tinting on the sides, beige head. Aroma is of caramel, toast, wood, and cherries. Flavor is more earthy with notes of wood, oak, caramel, roast, herbal hops, and nuts. Body is on the lighter side.
