deyholla (7454) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread, dark sweet grains, toffee and a touch of grass. Flavor has notes of dark breads with dark cookie, biscuit and some toffee coming through.

high_on_hops (728) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours a solid black with a tan head and lacing. It has a rich, malty aroma with plum and some brown sugar. The flavor is rich, sweet malt up front with some dark fruit and a hint of chocolate leading to a sweet, smooth finish over a medium-heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ttoadee (812) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Dark amber pour, thin off white head. Candy sugar and malt in the nose. Middle is toasted malt and thin molasses. Finish is well balanced malt. Seems a little light in the mouth feel for the style, but very drinkable.

Hiero (129) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Drank this a week ago, so I canít remember all the details. This had a complex, dark flavor with a medium body. Not much bitterness which made it very drinkable.

jsquire (3637) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Dark brown amber color with only the barest of beige heads. Big malty, molasses and dried fruit nose. This is a very smooth beer with big malty sweetness, caramel, molasses, raisin, prune, faint smoke and rich peat. There is some sweetened chocolate in the finish, with a nice warming alcohol sensation to it. This is a very sweet, accessible Scotch ale.

Sweet malty aroma with scents of molasses and prunes. Pours a very dark almost black amber with a thick light tan head. Sweet dark fruits. Medium bodied. Very smooth and sweet with just a hint of crisp earthy bitterness on the finish. Well balanced. Very nice drinking beer.

DocJitsu (1125) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber color with a 1/2 inch taupe colored head. Nice aroma of milk chocolate liqueur. The moutfheel is not adequate for the style. Not watery, but not all the way creamy either. The flavors are nice. A lot of chocolate and some Christmas pull candy. I really enjoy this beer. Not true to style, but good nonetheless.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2013
This is a great-looking beer. With a deep, dark brown color and a light brown head that leaves behind some really sexy lacing, it looks thick, with carbonation forming on the sides of the glass, rising slowly to the surface with every movement. It smells malty, but not roasted, not sweet, and not dry - more slightly smoky, reminiscent but not strong of peat. Itís really neat on the palate, with a cool, chocolate-like spiciness with a touch of smoke that persists into the finish. Again, itís not sweet, but the peatiness spices things up really well and keeps it from feeling too cloying. This is a beer thatís full, but light-palated and offers a body thatís supple, but doesnít muddy up your taste buds. All-around, itís a modest, but well-brewed and well-balanced Scotch Ale thatís smooth, easy to drink, and flavorful.
