Our Scotch Ale starts with a beautiful off-white head above an intense amber body. A faint peaty aroma compliments a light caramel sweet entrance that gives way to a hint of smokiness and a dry finish. This is an ultra clean, malty beer that will get your bagpipes blazing!

Draft taster at the brewpub. Medium brown with small lite tan head. Smoke, caramel malt, peat, as expected for the style. Not particularly well executed.

Tap at MBC. Amber caramel brown body. Thin off-white/beige head. Light to medium bodied. The UK yeast sort of takes over. Not so impressive.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a clear, very dark copper color. There was a small off white head that didn’t linger or leave any lacing. It has a nice nose. Caramel malts, some peat and smokiness. The taste is also good. A good malt body, but no real sweeetness. A somewhat dry finish. Some peat and smokey notes. A good solid beer!

Smooth and malty with sugary notes of caramel and toffee. Subtle aspects of roast, toast, peat and light smoke follow. Good, but a little too sweet for my buds.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear brown color with a medium tan head. A light smoky and sweet malty nose. The flavor is nutty, light but noticeable smoke, some berries, caramel and toffee. Very nice.

Barely any smell. Nice dark brown color. Feels a little watery on the palate. Has a barn like taste in this one, in a barn animal kind of way. Unique fer sure. Overall, quite interesting.

tmongoose (1867) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Draft on location poured a medium to dark amber with white head. Aroma was of peat mild smoke and some dark malts. The flavor was a nice malty flavor with some sweet from caramel. The peat and smoke were nicely balanced. Decent and drinkable.

A good scotch ale. Light and toasty with some pleasant caramel flavoring. Not much in the way of hops. Tried at the brewery in 2014.

Just recently found the notes on this. As I was passing through West Virginia on my way to Alaska last Summer, my family and I stopped in a hotel in Charleston where they gave me a free beer ticket at their bar downstairs. Lo and behold, this was the beer I decided to try that night. I had this in a pint glass. The appearance was a nice dark hazy brown color with a normal bar pour thin little white head that once it died, there was barely any lacing. The smell had the peaty/smokey aromas playing nicely with a nice roasty sort of quality. The taste was there as it had the normal qualities of a Scotch ale such as a nice peaty/smokiness surrounded by the roasty qualities of a malty sweetness running all about. Skillfully, the aftertaste was fairly artful as it seemed to locate everything I just mentioned and wrap it all up nicely and lead into the finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body and had a mediocre sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the Scotch Ale style and for me as it was actually fairly smooth. Overall, not a bad Scotch Ale, I think I could see myself having this again and would recommend if you see it.
