Not bad. Better than the ipa. Pours a copy colour. Aromas are at first metallic...then warm up to bubblegum, vanilla and molasses. Very similar flavours with a wet dog like finish. Decent...but quite forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange/amber clear body with lasting foaming off white head and nice lacing. Aroma of sweet grains, maybe some dried fruit, butterscotch. Taste is sweet and malty, the faintest touch of roast, but too subtle and watery. Overall, not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear, reddish amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is fairly sweet and sugary, some caramel and brown sugar, toasty malts. Flavour is also sweet and sugary, a little thin for the sweetness, caramel and brown sugar, a touch of dried fruit. Not a bad flavour, but zero bitterness for balance and pretty boring.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear brownish amber with a huge frothy tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, smoke, vanilla, light coconut, light chocolate and nuts. Taste is caramel, toffee, some bitter cocoa/chocolate, some smoke and campfire and a bit of an off metallic taste. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a prickly carbonation but the body seems a touch light. Overall a nice scotch ale with alot of flavor just needs a tad more body.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a good head with excellent lacing right to the bottom. The colour is dark copper. Starts off with sweet caramel malts, herbal taste and light citrus. Perhaps too much bitterness in the after taste. It’s a good beer but maybe the balance is off for a scotch ale.

Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Tawny amber, gold-tinted head. Sweet caramel, a touch of overripe apple, bready malts. Nice enough.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with two fingers of slowing fading foam. Aroma of caramel and a bit of roast. Way too sweet. Aftertaste is bitter but it doesn’t blend with the sweetness in a pleasant way. It’s just sweet until you swallow, then bitter until taking another swig.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Overly sweet, loads of burnt sugars, and deep burnt malt aromas. Light wood, some dark fruit. Man, is this sweet! No hops to speak of, just a mess of burnt, sugary, overly sweet malts. This was a drain pour.

On tap at Prohibition, pours a hay amber with a medium beige head. Aroma and flavour of bready caramel malts, light dark fruitiness, and toffee. Decent scotch - acceptable.
