A strong ale that starts out sweet and malty with an alcoholic warming in the finish. Very smooth going down but it packs quite a kick.

Sample at the brewpub on 7/1/13. Pours a clear amber color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and slight peat; kinda faint. Malty and caramelly nose with light fruit and a bit of peat before a sweet finish.

Red-brown, small tan head. Aroma is ok although underwhelming, sweet malts and bourbon-like. Medium body, little bit sweet and sticky. Flavor is mostly on the sweet side, buttery-malt flavors typical of scotch ale but somehow despite that is a little on the thin side. Some warm alcohol in finish. Not bad, nothing special.

From a growler at BotW. Clear brown pour, little to no head. Smells pretty good, sweet caramel. Feels quite thin after expecting some heft from the label. Ok taste, got the hallmark scotch flavours, but not as big as I?d hoped, and tinged with a soapy vibe. Defo not a repeater, but I live 100s of miles away so the chances aren?t good anyway. There are far better scotches out there, including one from honeyoye falls just down the road.

On tap at rohrbach's pub. Pours mahogany amber with small off white head. Nose is sweet with additions of raisin and toffee. Taste follows with a plum and faint stone fruit. Well balanced and a strong body. Solid.

Draft. Pours a clear amber with a large head. Aromas of toffee, caramel and plastic cup. Taste is malty, slightly peaty with a sweet finish. Average.

My favorite from Rohrbach. Great aroma and great taste. Best Scotch Ale out there. Thankfully they’re local.
