Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a dark golden appearance with a tan head. Boozy, scotch, peaty, cloying fruity aroma. Rich orange citrusy, huge Scotch, very boogy/peaty, boozy flavor. Kind of hard to drink and cloying.

On tap at Schlafly Taproom. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Strong scotch aroma and flavor. Not a fan of this one, too much like hard alcohol.

750ml->stem. Hazy orange/amber with faint white head. Aroma: Scotch whisky (no "e") and peat. Taste: peat, earth, malt, whisky. Tastes like a watered-down Scotch and soda, which is generally a good thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from cool-looking big brown bottle into tulip glass. It poured a medium copper color with chill haze and a weak white head. Aromas of Scotch whiskey, woodsy tannins, peat, freshly-baked bread, light toast, lots of caramelized sugars, faint ale fruitiness, no noticeable hops. Flavor was caramelly, strong toffee, fruit leather, too sweet for my taste. Medium body. Low carbonation. Some nice oxidized wood-aging nuances. Very alcoholic, a bit too hot for me, too. I feel it is exactly what they were going for, exactly what they describe, so well-crafted in that sense, but not a really great beer overall.

750 ml bottle. Pours orange/amber. Taste is bready, cookie, and then the whiskey aroma with peat and a bit of smoke. Slight apple sweetness. Whiskey stands out. Pretty complex and a nice shift for Schlalfy.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 The beer is light copper with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma brings yeast, fruit, malt, sweetness, booze. The flavor imparts booze and mediocrity. Eh...Iím just not sure this whole scotch beer relationship thingy is working out. Itís not you - itís me. I gotta go.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is dates, pear and apple esters with cookie and caramel malt, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruity esters, brown sugar, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Golden in color, slight haze with a thin white head. Big scotch whiskey aroma. Good malt backing and nice hops. This was a great beer to start the New Year with .

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dirty yellow-orange color with a huge, very creamy white head that is about 2-inches high with modest carbonation. Aroma has a STRONG scotch nose, very light smoky note late, lots of liquor alcohol presence very late. Flavor tastes like your drinking a frothy carbonated glass of scotch. The flavor is really one dimensional in my opinion as almost no other flavors come through than scotch. Body is modest with a ton of carbonation, light alcohol heat late. Let me preface this with I love scotch. Itís one of my favorite non-beer alcoholic drinks but this brew was more scotch than beer. The beer characteristics were completely lost to my nose and taste buds. Overall a very "meh" beer in my opinion.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is malts and strongly refers to scotch. The flavor is scotch infused, with a mild fruitiness and malts in it. Can appreciate it but just donít care for scotch.
