Nice malty aroma of caramel and toffee. Pill owing head and lively co2 malt dominated some pleated malt around. Some bitterness. A solid four brew.

joeneugs (3817) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
On tap at the Beer Baron. It pours a clear dark ruby color with a light tan head. The aroma has beautiful notes of chocolate covered cherries and rich, expressive maltiness. The flavor is the same. Lots of cherry, plum, fig and lightly spicy/menthol hops. A little cocoa and roasted malt underneath give some added depth. Medium bodied with a lightly acidic, fruity, toasted finish. Really great stuff.

Theydon_Bois (11571) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Keg at PP Solano Beach, 14/11/14. Chestnut brown with beige edgeing. Nose is perfumed, sweet malt, toffee, light smoke, sprinkle of hoppage, candied fruit peel. Taste comprises candied orange peel, sweet licks, floral, toasted brown sugar, red grapefruit, canfy bar. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok Scotch affair if a little overly sweet.

slowrunner77 (6580) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Not a standout within style, but its a pretty nice beer overall. Slight dark fruit, a good dose of maltiness, a slightly sticky medium-full body and very very slight peat.

kathouse (1197) - Nevada, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Magenta and clear with little foam. Malty aroma and sweet caramel body. More like a porter than a scotch ale but still good.

yngwie (14764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. A clear dark brown one, topped by a small dense light beige head. Dried fruits, tobacco, mocha notes and roasted malts in the aroma, really lovely. It’s super smooth on the palate, faintly warming, full body. Lots of flavors too, sweetness and some bitterness, as well as all the good stuff found in the flavor. Long finish with a good chocolate touch. Plain wonder malt forward beer. 130813
