3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at ACAT 2010. This was a highlight for me at the festival not due to any sort of wacked out technique or oak aging but just for a solid to style scotch ale. Quality scotch ales are hard to find. Floral, fruity aroma with a bit of sugar. Flavor has a lot of toasted grain and bread. Caramelized onion sort of sweetness in the flavor adds an interesting texture and character.

The only new thing they had when I dropped by this week - the hoppy beer wasn’t ready quite yet. Pours a deep reddish amber, nice tan head. Aroma was caramel and dark fruits. Flavor matched - rather sweet and fruity. Hint of smokiness was very, very faint. Some earthy hops were rather clear on the finish as well. A bit too hoppy and fruity for my preference, but not a bad brew.

Cask @ 2010 ATL Cask Ale Tasting. Poured copper with a thin tan head. Nose was somewhat fruity, with big caramel notes and some more subtle peat smoked malts and some earthy hops. Medium body with soft carbonation. Flavor is malty with a good bit of caramel sweetness, there’s also an earthy nuttiness that I like and mild to medium peat smokiness. The smoke became more apparent the more I drank. Good stuff.

This beer is extremely woody in all aspects. It has a very distinct cedar-like must to it that was slightly overpowering but not overly unpleasant (maybe due to the addition of some smoked peat). There are also some sweet caramel flavors in play that help to round off this 9% ale. Not bad I just prefer a little less musty peat flavor and more of a smoky sweet malt character in a scotch ale.
