Another tasty brew from Oskar Blues. The sweet caramel notes in this go well with the light smokiness. The Alcohol is well hidden.

Can, received as bonuses from both alexsdad06 and hopson, thanks guys! Pours a brown with amber highlights, with a sizable dense pillowy tan head, good lacing. Aroma has the light presence of nuts, caramel malts, and some cola. Flavor is lots of malts, gentle caramel and light smoke and sweetness. Not a bad scotch ale.

Very dark, opaque solid brown color with a bubbly fluffy off white head that retains well. Chocolate, caramel malt and nutty sweet aroma. Taste is very smooth scottish style obviously. Rich nutty malty taste. Little heavy body. Toasted, light smoke and some chocolate taste as well.

This has got to be one of my favorite scotch ales. I know everyone says this but WOW! This came from a CAN? Aroma of strong malt and caramel. Pour was a nice dark brown with a nice 1 finger off white head. Taste was HUGE. Easily drinkable with huge caramel malt flavors and a decent light hop aftertaste. Can pick up some woody and roasty flavors in the back of the tongue. After I hit 1000 I will buy a lot more of this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice smoky, chocolatey ber. Very malty, yet nicely warm on the palate. I really like that it’s in the can, adds an air of informality to what’s in fact a serious brew. Some dark fruits definitely present.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Impressive complexity is my first impression. Big smoky, woody flavor up front. Oak and cedar. Fruit all over the palate as well. Cherry, plum and perhaps even strawberry. All of that then is drizzled in rich dark chocolate. The rich flavors are complimented by a monstrous chewy, yet smooth and silky mouthfeel. A bit of a brandy like alcohol flavor seeps into the back. Just about as good as it could be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned. Dark reddish brown coloured. Huge dense light brown head. Caramel, brown sugar, molasses, light notes of ripe fruits and some spice. Flavour is sweet and full of brown sugar. Has some alcoholnotes, a light herbal note. Some ripe fruits and a very light note of liqourice. Is quite full bodied. A light dryness. Is slightly bitter maybe from the alcohol. Quite quite easy to drink, but gives a least me a light buzz. Not used to these high octane US beers no more, but I still like.
