Draft from the Brewery. Served in a pint glass. Scotch ales are usually hit or miss for me, but I liked this one because it was more on the mild side; I can’t stand overpowering scotch ales. A sweet, malty beer with bread notes and a medium body. Enjoyable and not overwhelming.

Draft. Pours brownish amber with a beige head. Malty sweet aroma with a light roast and toasted bread. The flavor has toasty and sweet malts, lightly roasted malts, earthy notes, and just a touch of peaty smoke. Solid.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 Beer pours a charcoal color, dark, with an off-white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, slightly toasted caramel with a malty sort of smell as well. Attack is slightly sweet malt with a coffee overtone, but the maltyness minimizes any bitterness - no alcohol overtone here, surprising for such a high-octane winter ale. But make no mistake, it’s high-octane! Smooth mouthfeel and delicate on the palate, again surprising for 8.4% ABV, and a clean finish. Very unique Scotch Ale, worth a trip to Port 44 by itself.
