By far the best canned beer I’ve ever had. Although I haven’t had their Pale Ale yet..... Slightly smokey smell, and a great balanced malty flavor. Perfectly balanced from start to finish.

On sale under 7 bucks, why not lift some up from HEB, at 8% ABV super V.A.L.U.E., before even heralding in multi bagpipe salute to supreme malt riches and cherished stash of smoke, seems natural they’d want to build a third location here in Austin. Very readily available round these parts, maybe it’s the cheap flights to Denver, or the abundant reasons to travel between the vastly different yet intertwined cities. A river floating classic, I still remember one, warming at bottom of nearly empty cooler, scratched and shaken, too much for the situation needed dilution with Guadalupe River, flattening the craft, memorable, but not quite the ideal situation for this interpretation of an ale from a land perhaps similarly caught in the current, dragging it downstream helplessly away from its place. Smells a bit like wood varnished in decades of smokiness and boisterousness which somehow twisted “wee” from an imperial shit ton by most other standards. Balanced somehow on three axes – extra sweet malt fattened with roastiness, stand up hops leaning against wobbly alcohol at a tingly convergence; similar to way burly enough men playing ridiculous looking musical instruments in skirts somehow works. Makes me want to chase something down the street repeatedly.

Malt dominates the hops in the nose. Roasted, caramel and maybe some chocolate richness. The hopsare citrus and balance well. Deep red / brown pour with thick foam. Taste is stout, rich, malty. Heavy caramel / chocolate sweetness up front with a longish bitter finish.

12 ounce can. Mahagony color topped by a big foamy beige head. Rich toasted malt nose, redolent of caramel and toasted nuts. Sweet roasted malt flavor has smoky notes. Sticky mouthfeel with roasty notes. Finishes with sweet cocoa and cola notes. A real winner. Worth seeking out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with ruby reflexes, medium head. Aroma: molasses, malty sweetness, candy sugar-similar to a doppelbock. Taste: sweet but nicely counterbalanced with hops, bready. ABV well hidden. Good but to my taste more a doppelbock than scotch ale.

"Can @ Barnacle Bills - Pours a reddish-brown with medium head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of bittersweet cocoa, caramel, malts, figs, nuts, dates, anise, nutmeg, and allspice. Taste the same. Palate of sweetness and chocolate and plums. Thick, choco deliciousness! Mmmm, yum! Loved every drop."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml can from BrewDog online. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Rich malty aroma, caramel, dark chocolate, roast. Taste is also really malty, caramel and some dark fruit flavours, quite sweet with a bitter end. Really smooth mouthfeel. Not a big fan of this style of beer to be honest but it’s a good strong brew, and speaking of strong: I thought the alcohol was really noticeable in the taste, more so than other beers of similar strength.

Pours very dark brown to black with a slight aroma of oak and chocolate. Tastes of caramel and malt with moderate carbonation and a mild bitter sweet finish. Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch!

Nitro is beautiful and dark. It is so fluffy on the mouth and light on the palate.
