Peat smoke and rich English malts highlight our full bodied rendition of a Scotch ale. Created in the mind of our wacky brewer, and delivered to you in freestyle fashion.

(Rating #4,800) Bottle... GSRARO Throwdown... Dark, murky ale (burnt orange when held up to bright light) with a small, creamy, lightly tanned head. Decent retention. The nose provides caramel, dark fruits and light molasses. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy. Well-balanced... too much so, for the style. Lightly sweet, modestly bitter and mildly tangy. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter. Thanks to juiceisloose for sharing this bottle!

Deep brown. Rich brown sugar molasses nose, appealing. Nice chocolatey malt flavors, leading to a semi dry finish and just a kiss of a spicy hop.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Chestnut color with a moderate, stable light tan head. Grainy aromas. Some toasted and roasted malt, hint of peat and still a bit of silage in the background. Fairly thin in feel. LIghtly roasted malts in the front. Some brown sugar and floral hops in the middle. Just a bit of peat and hint of iodine in the finish. Need to be slightly thicker in feel, which I think would also aid the depth in this one. Drinkable black ale.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2008
On draught and in six pack bottles at the brewery in Plover, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy dark brown brew with a thick and creamy off-white/light beige head that has some excellent retention and nice lacing. Aroma of smoked dry caramel malt, a touch of peat, tropical fruit, a touch of flowery hops and some toffee. Taste is medium bodied, creamy, with continued flavor of roasted and smoked caramel malt with peat character, some light dark pitted fruits, and a touch of toffee. Finish slightly semi-sweet fruity aftertaste with smoked peat and then turns in to a semi-dry smoked malt flavor that lingers after the finish.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Pours a nice dark brownish black with darker head. Light smokey peat and toffee aroma. Flavor starts off well enough, but fades quickly, too quickly to a watery finish. Per my Father: "It has a finish reminiscent of that first step into a warm, steaming barn in Winter."
