3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Rightcross55. Pours very dark ruby red with a small foamy head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is thick caramel candy and dark fruit mixed with some light chocolate and peat smoke. Taste only slight sweet with a dry finish. Caramel and dark fruit mostly and a very light smokiness in the finish. Medium body with a nice chewy mouthfeel. Solid scotch ale. Nice and smooth.

Draft - Caramel and light grains. Dark clear amber with a beige head. Light and sweet whiskey notes, with grains and a bit of sweet caramel. Nice and spot on for style.

On draught at Ginger Man Dallas. Dark ruby-brown color with a medium foamy light beige head that recedes gradually. Dark fruit, malt and hops in the nose. Medium body and slightly chewy with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit and earthy hops. The finish is subtly smoky with a malt and fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nutty and roasted malt taste with caramel notes. Medium bitterness. The palate lacks thickness, slightly watery mouthfeel. Dry, burnt, bready aftertaste. Great scotch ale with great roasted malt notes.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a dark beer with creamy tan head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate and dark fruits. The body seems thin for the style. Finish is bitter but the overall sweetness makes this hard to drink a second in one sitting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent scotch ale. Mild sweet malty aroma. Dark brown color with an average head. Lighter palate than most of this style and higher carbonation. Blend of sweet malt with raisin and molasses flavors with a slight smokiness. I also noticed a hops bitterness on the finish. Good effort.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice deep brown with a tan head. A little grainy aroma. Malty palate with toast, nuts, grain, a hint of cocoa. Not much in the way of smokiness which I consider a positive but may disappoint some people who are fans of the scotch ale style with a smoky malt character.

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.
