Nitro. Pours like a Scotch on nitro. Aroma is fresh sweet malt with light earthiness. Flavor is a similar with a spicy bitter ride out. Feel is creamy and.lively. like it but don’t trust the nitro.

On tap on paddle at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A dark reddish brown beer with a bit of light coloured head. Sweet caramel on the nose. Sweet fruity caramel in the mouth. Compares very favourably with my go-to scotch ale, which is McEwan’s. Very nice.

My first scotch ale. Pours dark brown, with a thin tan head (yes, kind of like cola). Smells roasty; a bit of coffee aroma. First few sips definitely reminded me of scotch. Light to medium bodied, and decent carbonation. After a while that scotch flavor seemed to fade, and I dunno, for me it kind of lost some character. Still an enjoyable and easy beer to drink. Overall, pretty nice, malty, drinkable beer. But didn’t really amaze me.

Appearance: pours a 2" sudsy cream colored head, plenty of lacing left behind as it recedes. Color is a deep reddish-brown.
Aroma: very malt dominate. Smells of cocoa and coffee, whole wheat bread and some peaty, earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat syrupy with a drying finish.
Flavor: nice combination of cocoa, vanilla, yeasty bread, pungent earthy hops, some warming alcohol burn in the finish.
Overall: very nicely done and very much to the style.

Can from Garrett. This is fantastic beer in a can. Pours a brown color with the aroma of caramel malt. Tastes of caramel and other sweet malty goodness. Almost as good as Ten Fidy. I can't believe this comes in a can.

Superb example of a Scotch Ale. Not as sweet as some offerings in this style, it allows the malts to be showcased more effectively. Finishes with a hint of smokiness; though not from prayed malt, it works. I give this beer extra points for being in a can :)
