Good beer. The hops are quite sticky but the malts stand out. Leaves a nice mouthfeel. There are hints of vanilla.

Draft/Nitro: Poured a dark brown black with a tan color head. The aroma is strong malts. Taste was rich toffee malts, very smooth from the nitro and sweet boozy finish.

Nitro tap. Mild sweetness and woody flavor finishes with prune flavors bit bad. Not amazing

Bottle pour. Very dark reddish brown with a large creamy tan head. Very nice lacing. Aroma is very malty with caramel, toffee, and some chocolate. Full creamy body. Nice sweet taste with a little salt and very little bitter. Very good beer.

Just an incredibly impressive beer. It’s distinct from other scotch ales I’ve had in the past. Great appearance and the taste and aftertaste are exactly what I was looking for in this type of beer. Full-bodied without being interfering as one other reviewer noted.

Good, good, good, good, good, good, good, yadayadauadayadaydada. It’s a solid scotch ale, with slightly less flavor due to the nitro widget.

Tasted from a Nitro can.
Beautiful creamy white frothy head (almost egg white color).
Nose - malty red fruits
Taste - light to medium viscosity with floral bright red fruits but it doesn't envelop the mouth. It finishes light and clean with the malt and fruits lightly whipping in and out. To me this would be a great beer to accompany any food entree. It's just big enough to be enjoyable, but not big enough to interfere with anything.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big nitro can to English pint glass. Pours deep red/brown, big billowy khaki head, nice lacing and great retention. Aroma of smoked malt. Taste is malty sweet, lightly bitter. Medium/full bodied, ample nitro carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bitter sweet. Tasting notes of smoked malt, tree nuts, caramel, a little chocolate and cola nuts. A very tasty Scotch ale!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml can [took obviously an odyssey lacking traceability except the final FR-BI stage marshalled by bartlebier, thank you very much!]. Opaque, Caribbean cherry wood colour with small, cremay, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Caramel malty aroma, notes of toffee, nuts, hints of milk chocolate, vanilla. Taste has cola like notes, chocolately and nuttily interludes, liquorice in the last third, some warming alcohol; soft, slightly sticky palate. Unbalanced, inharmonious, no leitmotif.

I really like Dale’s Pale Ale, so decided to give this a try. I prefer Dale’s better, but I knew this would be different since it’s a Scottish Ale. Darker, heavier, stronger, definitely more bitter! Not a bad ale, just think I prefer some other types of ales over this. For canned beer, I’ll stick to Dale’s, but glad I tried. This was only the 2nd flavor that I tried from Oskar Blues, and looking forward to tying more. Seems like a good brewery so far.
