Thanks to GhostFace for this one as an extra. Cheers, Neal! Pours dark cola brown with some red highlights. Nose is slight smoke, dark malt, hint of vinegar and maybe some oxidation. Flavor is similar- dark malts, some dark fruit, a hint of smoke, and some tartness. Finish is somewhat tart in this light-bodied scotch ale.

Bottle pours amber/brown with a tan head. Aroma shows notes of buttered toffee, light to moderate roast, and what seems like rye. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of peanut shells, milk chocolate, and anise.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Poured a dark reddish-amber with a light head that faded quickly to lace. Aroma was primarily of malts witha sweet twinge and a slight pear hue. Taste was carmally malts with a light burnt hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall, a nice, smooth scotch ale by Lake Louie.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish amber with a huge tan head. Nose is of malt. Rich and creamy on the palate, the taste is chock full of dark roasted malt, smoked peat, and nutty caramel. Finishes dry but not hoppy. A very flavorful beer that pairs well with hearty fate such as lamb or split pea soup with ham.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reviewed from notes.
Served in a tulip glass. Pours a moderate brown-red color with a slight head and no lacing. The nose is some light dark fruits, caramel, toffee, and a slight sour scent. The taste is definitely of an infected batch, though it hasn’t set in too much yet. Slight acetic character plus some toffee. Sourness pops up in the feel with a bit of sweetness. This is a problem I’ve encountered with several of their beers, unfortunately.

On tap. Pretty solid brew. A nice full bodied ale permeated with roasted malt and caramel flavors and a slightly sweet finish. A little thin in the mouth, but nothing too off about this one. Solid brew.
