I could drink it forever, and never really get bored.... and now that its become available in the Great State of Vermont, I probably will! Had my first one about 8 years ago in Brooklyn visiting my brother & fell in love instantly, so much that when I visited him again in WI last summer, I brought a whole 12pack home with me. This beer sets the bar really high for quality canned suds, and for American Scotch ales in general. Heavenly.

Can. Rich brown mahogany color, beige head. Not too aromatic. Complex maltiness, but overpowered by alcohol in my opinion.

March madness 2015. Slight aroma of roasted malt. The taste is very nice with the dark roasted malt well balanced with hops and other malt.

March Madness 2015 - Dark, caramel, really tasty. Smooth but full bodied. Not my absolute favorite scotch ale, but a solid offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber-brown with one fat finger of dense tan head, excellent retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is mild toffee malt, dark chocolate, very mild smoke. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium bodied and creamy texture, low residual carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
One of the better scotch ales I’ve tried. Not only does the nitro charge give it a smooth texture, it smooths out the flavours. Even the little smokiness doesn’t feel peaty. Worth trying. (15/20)

Not a strong aroma. Appearance is nice.. Dark red with a tan head. Taste is dark dark chocolate and malts galore. Not a huge fan but above average for sure

Look: pours a dark brown. Slightly clear. White creamy head, I assume is from the nitro.
Smell: big malt forward. Very sweet smelling. Slight hop aroma.
Taste: malt forward. Nice sweetness. Toasted bread. Sweet caramel.
Feel: very creamy mouth feel. Medium low almost low carbonation feel.
Overall: nice beer on nitro. Very easy to drink nicely balanced beer. Better than other scotch ales I've had.
