I really liked the taste of this one. A dark amber liquid with a small lacing of head on it. Sweet with malt, leaving a caramel and brown sugar flavor. Slight aftertaste that makes you double gulp. Not bad for a cold night drink.

Brownish almost black pour from draft at Toefflers in new glarus. White creamy head. Sweet and malty scotchy flavor. Dank raisin aroma. Complex and very good

pours a rich ruby reddish brown with a frothy beige head. sweet aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is slightly sweet with a hint of bitter on the finish. A hint of strawberry? Tasty and easy drinking. Good beer!

Kind of tastes like puke, sour, and definitely not like any Scotch Ale I’ve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle at my buddy’s 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. I’m normally a little higher on Lake Louie stuff. This isn’t my favorite of their offerings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet for a scotch ale. Lots of hopping on the nose, but simply profiled as hop fruit, crystal malt, and a medium minerality.
