My friends are getting worried, because my favorite beers are from a brewery that cans its beers. What a ballbuster of a beer! Pours dark and thick with minimal head. Smoky peat in the nose, very dry. If you like single malt scotch, you will like this beer. Wonderful complex flavor with nice malt to smooth things out. While the pale ale from this brewery is the more popular beer, this is a really tasty alternative. Prost!!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
12 oz can. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep mahogany color, with a thick, creamy, tan head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with lots of big sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and light smokey aroma. The palate is rich and full, with lots of good sweet and caramel malt flavors, paired with light, peat smoked malt flavor. This beer finishes with more excellent sweet and caramel malt flavors up front, then ends with a warming, soothing, burn that lingers. Excellent example of Scotch Ale. A wonderful after work or diner beer, and a great beer to just sip and savor.

12oz can. Deep auburn brown with an initiallt thick head. Aroma of malt, toffy, tootsie roll and light smokiness.Medium bodied with medium to low carbonation. Very malty and sweet. Chocolate malt stands out. Overall not a classic Scotch Ale but a decent brew anyway. Especially from a can.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 $7.99 for a six pack of 12 oz cans at Total Wine. Mild malty aroma, but intensely flavorful beer. Very malty and roasty with caramel and chocolate malts, a faint hint of smoke, and an earthy hop bitterness to finish. Nice alcohol hit at 8%. Pretty good stuff. I didn’t like it so much at first, but it grew on me toward the bottom of the can. (3.5).. .. 6/22/07 .. .. on tap at the Mello Mushroom in Jacksonville. Really hit the spot after a long day at work. Chocolate really comes through. Tasty and delicious on tap. A great scotch ale. (3.7)

12 oz. can. A surprising find in Florida on the Gulf. Poured a cloudy dark brown cola color with gewy tan head. Aroma of intense chocolate malt from an icecream shop. Toffee chocolate caramel and more malt breaks down the flavor. thick,silky heavy body and finishes smooth. A tasty brew.

Canned. MALTY! I would go into my own thoughts on the malt, but the can tells you the story: three kinds of malt. Makes for a rich-ass beer.
