Dark Brown Coloring with Sandy Tan Head. Light Smokey Malt Aroma...Light Roasts. Dark Malt, Light Caramel and Chocolate. Alot of Smoked Malt Flavor...Light Bittered Dry Ending. Medium Mouthfeel. Impressive For a Can. To Enjoy Fully, You Must Enjoy Smoked Flavor, but A Very Nice Scotch Ale!

ITS rich malty and it will fill your mouth with cream just like me, smooth like caramel and very good brew id like a steak and a blowjob and wash her down a little hoppy?

Its about time that the Can gets some respect. Strong notes of Caramel, toasty coffee, mild cocoa, and lots of malty flavor. It hits you hard. perfect for a night cap.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours black with an off white head. Very dark, strong aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Aroma is the best thing going for this. The taste is slightly bitter with some chocolate and malts but tastes a bit flat. It lacks oomph. Or carbonation. Something there is missing that makes the taste as good as the smell. It’s still good but could be better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can - I’ve had this one a few times as samples and in other odd servings while out and about - time for a real rating. Deep, dark brown pour with a whitish-tan head. Smokey aroma with lots of roasted malts and peat. Taste is a well-blended mix of roasted malts with just enough sweetness, but not too much. Well done.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can poured clear brown with lasting creamy light brown head. It has a sweet aroma of malt, roasted malt, chocolate malt and smoked malts. The flavor doesn’t hint at the smokiness but embraces it. It isn’t too crazy though. Seems to be a mild smoke malt. It hits up front and toward the finish. Around the mild smokiness I taste roasted malts, sweet caramelized malts and chocolate malts. Refreshing brew. Around the periphery of the mainly malt flavor profile I get hints of hop bitterness. Just a hint though. The more I consume the more the sweet caramel and chocolate peek out behind the mild smokiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours brown, the appearance makes it look quite thick. Aroma is strong smoky caramel, rich malts, oak, and chocolate. All the bases of a good scotch ale are covered here. The flavor is pretty nice, the elements of the aroma come through more or less in full form. The mouthfeel is not as thick as I thought it would be, but not thin by any means.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This has notes of caramel, coffee, and maple. It is a nice mid weight scottish ale. The notes I mentioned at the beginning increase throughh the palate into the finish. Only issue is that at 8% you have to be careful.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma has lots of toasted malts, coffee, chocolate and brown sugar. The appearance is dark brown with a 4 finger tan,foamy head that evaporates to nothing while leaving quite a bit of tan lace. The flavor is like the aroma but more bitter than I expected. The palate is smooth with a bitter aftertaste. A darn good beer. Keep’em commin’.
