COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional scotch ale, caramel and malt sweetness dominates the palate. A full bodied ale that’s higher in alcohol content than most, making it a great after dinner sipper, but definitely not for the mild at heart.

From the 650 ml bottle. Milly’s/Stark Brewing has recently started bottling some of its regular brews like this one. The pour is dark reddish-brown with a short lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet vibrant malt and molasses. Medium body. The taste is a powerful barley malt flavor with a lasting bitter bite.

Draft at the source. Clear amber brown color, medium white head. Aroma of boozy molasses. Taste is sweet shoo fly pie.

BVery (6826) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Tap at Milly’s in Manchester, NH. Really nice brew - sweet caramel and fruit, and some alcohol heat to make it interesting. I enjoyed this one - probably the best one I tried this evening.

AirForceHops (3403) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Draft from brewpub. Deep amber color in the pint. Great retention. Nose is a nice malt and sugar. Excellent flavors of caramel, candy sugar and some fruity German hops. This really is worth a try if you are in this part of NH. The hops balance the sweetness. I don’t taste the ABV at all. Very nice blend. Peter does a great job with this style. Well done!

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2010
A dark clear reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light molasses and maple, some light dark fruits. In mouth, maple extract, woody notes, molasses, a bit of alcohol warmth, not bad, but more like a dunkelbock, with all these fruity esters. On tap at the brewpub, April 5, 2010.

Growler shared with oteyj. Pours a dark but clear brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma is greatly hindered due to me being sick, but seems sweet and fruity. Flavor is also sweet, but with some bitter malt. Palate is OK, but nothing too special. Tasty, but not amazing.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Growler shared with crafycarl21. Pours a beautiful ruby brown with smallish head. Aroma reminds me of cherry jello. Lots of fruity sweet malt. I’ve never smelled anything like it, and don’t really know what to make of it. Flavor is much more robust- lots of sweet malt and roast which finishes with a hint of malt bitterness. Very unique and somewhat appealing.

just as the description says, its a great after dinner sipper. Instead of desert, the beer fan at Milly’s can grab a Bos Scotch Ale and get a little extra out of it that a piece of cake cant match

20070120 Growler? Sampled at Paul’s. Brown color with pale head. Potent, boozy aroma with sugary notes, malta, distant notes of that fake plastic smoke. Body is thick, coating, brutal, like liquid caramel with even a touch of cloying. Flavor is hard to discern past all of the sweetness, but it’s less flavorful than expected given the immense malts. I guess I can see what they were getting at.

Pint glass on tap at Millys Tavern. Deep amber color with nice thick off white head. Nose was malty with notes of caramel and toffee. Nice thick palate with little carbonation. Smooth & creamy. This is a sweeeet brew. Liquid candy indeed. Taste is same as nose. Sweet caramel, some brown sugar, and toffee. Alcohol is well hidden and is not a distraction.
