Robust and strapping, our Scotch Ale takes BIG Beers to a whole new level. Rich malt balances perfectly with delicate hops to provide a concentrated and intense flavor; an ideal companion for hearty foods, or as a meal unto itself. Allow this ale to warm slightly in your glass to enhance its truly bold character. Sharing is encouraged, as this is one beer that lives up to its name! Hey! No peeking! Slainté!

Ugh. This smelled like copper pennies in moss covered well water. the flavor was slightly better but still had a lot of that pennies and copper stuff. The hops felt drowned and the only true beer-type flavor was the carmel malt that almost saved this beer from being completely bad.

Rich aroma and mouthfeel. Smoky, not too sweet, but not because it is balanced with hops, rather a malty thick sipper. Many complex sugary tastes showing the glory of the grain.

22 oz. bottle, from BevMo. Wow, can’t believe that I haven’t rated this one yet! Pours a clear deep mahogany color with a small beige head that diminishes quickly to nothing. Aroma is sweet and malty, rich with dark fruits, maple, faint floral notes, and a bit of molasses. Flavor is also predominantly sweet, with more rich dark fruitiness, clover honey, dark brown sugar, a bitter roastiness, alcohol and an interesting astringent finish. Full body and extremely modest carbonation on the tongue. Enjoyable.

Deep ruby/amber with light tan head. The malt is big, but the smoke and peat are not. They are there but half muted. I love Islay scotch, so I’m always looking for a scotch ale that will reach up out of the glass a punch me with smokey, peaty, scorched earth flavors. Not this one. Brew is lightly sweet, also. Some caramel and nuts. All malt. Full, smooth palate. A nice after dinner drink. Solid, but not aggressive enough on the scotch part for my taste.

Bomber bottle. Poured dark brown with an average off-white frothy head that diminished slowly. Moderate nutty sour citrus aroma. Medium body with sticky texture. Balanced medium sweet sour flavor with a medium duration finish. Stronger citrus flavor than I expected.

The label does not lie, this beer is a meal. Clear brown pour with minimal tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and some nuts. Lots of earthy, peat-like flavor, as if the beer was finished in a scotch barrel. The caramel and nuttiness there throughout compliment it nicely. A really good beer, especially if you don’t plan on doing anything afterward.

A decent Scotch ale. Some caramel flavor, decent hops, and a heavy malt. A nice thick feel, decent flavor. Not bad.

Dark amber body, moderate head. Nuts, caramel and molasses. Flavor has these notes but doesn’t feel like a Scotch ale. Actually, I don’t know what this feels like. Whatever..
