A Strong Scotch Ale. This is a very full-bodied, dark rich brew with a sweet malt character of much depth possessing the flavors of toffee, plums and currants. The hop varietal used in such small amount is English First Gold and can be barely discerned. The target gravity for this brew is 20 degrees Plato and hop bitterness of just 14 International Bittering Units, which is a measure of hop content.

GT2 (9408) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Cask at Mad Fox. Pours clear, deep ruby. Small tan foam. Nose is heavier cherry Twizzlers and milk chocolate. Taste is quite sweet to the point of cloying, lots of overly sweetened herbal tea. Palate is much too sticky and dense. Not my style. Ick.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2012
I didn’t like this one too much, way too boozy in the nose and palate. Pours a cloudy brown then you just smell booze all over this malt bomb. Not for me

blipp (7084) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft. Pours deep amber with an off white head. Peaty-ish malty aroma with some light sweetness. The flavor is a bit sweeter than average for a scotch ale, with toffee, some fruity notes, and light toasty and smokey notes. Not bad.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Dark reddish brown color. Sweet aroma and flavor with toffee and raisins. Smooth and very malty taste. Good dessert beer with nice raisiny character.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
On tap. Pours with a tan head over a clear brown hued body. Aromas are decently estery, plums, currants, figs with a strong caramel and brown sugar maltiness. Light melanoidins. Flavors are sweet, too sweet to be honest. Estery, caramel. Feels a bit out of balance. Thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
