Great stuff overall and very true to style. A nice bit of mellow smokiness in the aroma, somewhat medicinal, perhaps a bit of peatiness or I may just be picking up some of the alcohol whiffs. Rich and sweet caramel malt body, smooth on the palate, with just a hint of dry, hoppy bitterness as it closes out.

On tap @ Pumphouse poured a cloudy reddish brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of peat smoke and toasted malt. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of peat smoke roasted malt and carmel with a smooth lingering smokey finish.

On tap at the brewpub, 4/13/06: Reddish-copper (sound familiar?) with a decent film on top. Minor little caramel warming aspect. Bit of cooked sugar, but itís easy to drink.

Had this at the brewery. The beer poured a clear, dark-brown color with a small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishig head. The aroma was alright, not terribly engaging, though: Moderately malty with notes of roasted grain, lightly hoppy with a note of pine, moderately yeasty with a note of cellar and a trace miscellaneous notes of black tea and honey. The flavor was moderately sweet, liglhtly bitter with a long, moderately bitter finish. The body was medium-to-full, the texture was velvety and the carbonation was lively.

Growler after two days from pour date. The style is new to me so I do not have the best perspective. Carbonation is low but not the fault of the brewer. Not as malty as the only other Scotch Iíve had (Old Chub) and slightly more bitter. Dry finish takes the sweet away from the initial sweet taste. Good stuff.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Draught. Copper with a small creamy to frothy off-white head; creamy spotty lacing. Sweet brown sugar and caramel malt aromas with chocolate notes. Maple caramel flavor with spicy fruit hops and smoked and chocolate malts. Medium bodied and creamy palate.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Draft. Tasted much like an 8% Newcastle Brown Ale. It was sort of cloying. Not as smoky as I would have liked. Overall decent though.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Dark brown and a little cloudy. Very mild soap and pine aroma. Some nuts and raisins with a sharp scotch presence. Bitter and astringent, full bodied, with a nice nutty scotch finish.

Nice copper-red color with a decent head. Very smooth texture with excellent carbonation. Nippy notes of alcohol. Mild bitterness. Sweet smoke nuances.
