COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bohica (36) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Nice aroma, somewhat sweet. Very little head, low carbonation, which fits the style. Deep reddish brown with a coppery tint. Full bodied, somewhat sweet, very lightly hopped, just enough to mask some of the alcohol. Slight esther/phenolic flavor at the finish. Overall, a nice take on a traditional Scotch Strong Ale

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2004
Bottle. Yipes, super sweet and sticky. Kahlua, peat, with a hit of soy. Malty and very sweet.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Bottle. Dark ruby brown with almost no head. Sweet malt/caramel aroma. Rich caramel/tofee/brown sugar flavor. This is easy to drink and hides its alcohol well. Low carbonation. It’s not an intense beer, but it’s well put together - like a real scotch ale and not your typical American overdone take.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Very slight hop bite, but it is present, very malty, brown sugar and caramel, almost like a brown, very little carbination, color like most scotch ales, nice on the palate, no head on the pour.

omhper (19654) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2004
Bottled, thanks hopsrus! Deep copper colour, huge, lively head. Flowery toffee aroma with notes of raspberries. Sweet, fruity and full bodied. Thick and syrupy rather than firm. Grassy bitter finish. A bit raw.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 25, 2004
Very nice dark ruby brown color with a small off white head. Malt, spice and earthy aroma. Mildly sweet malt, with tea and earthy flavors. Very interesting.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - APR 25, 2004
Glowing dark ruby color, clear, with a small off-white head. The aroma was fruity...herbal tea, and a little medicinal. The flavor was very sweet...sugary, fruity, herbal tea. The feel was very soft...not a lot of carbonation here.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
Clear garnet body, creamy medium tan head. The aroma is not very aggressive, some caramel and malt and that is about it. Flavor is medium malt and some caramel. Not much going on here. As is typical with Moylan's this beer is just OK and needs some serious work to to impress me.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Pours a reddish brown with a small tan head. Nose is sweetened malts and caramel. Some alcohol and perhaps chocolate. Hint of toffee as well. Nice aroma! Of course, I let this warm up alot. The taste is a weakened version of the aroma. Thinner chocolate, alcohol and sweetened malts along with more caramel. The body is a little thin. I would have liked it to be as rich as the aroma, but, oh well. Finishes with some sugray and alcoholic notes. Not too bad!

frankR (145) - Davis, California, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Pours with a small completely diminishing head. Liquid is dark red. Nose is alcohol and carmel malts. Initial flavor is very sweet. Body is carmel, burnt and alcohol. Finish is warm alcohol, like scotch. Palate is bit light, watery, may be a characteristic of the style. Overall, not bad, drinkable sweet ale.
