I’ve fallen a bit out of favor with most scotch ales but I ordered a pint of this because it’s SN .. . Dark purple .. Mild foam, spits if decent lacing .. . All the typical prune and dark malty flavors .. The mouth is perfect, easy going finish .. . . If I cry out, you’re gonna push it some more!?!

4/29/15. On draft at World of Beer Destin. Deep brown pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Surprisingly mild aroma, malty, caramel, definitely something toasty... bread, toast, toffee. Lightly sweet flavor, definitely not too much, hints at nuttiness, toffee, sweet caramel, green hop bitterness, lingers doughy. Not bad.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Brass Tap - Midtown - on tap. Deep, dark brown pour, sticky khaki colored head - plenty of lacing. Aroma has some peat, cherry, some nuttiness. Delectable flavor with some nice toffee accents, a hint of chocolate, some earthy peat notes in the back end. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Solid, as to be expected from Sierra Nevada.

On tap at Dutch’s. Keg is labeled 7.3%. Mostly clear dark red color. Thin off-white head. Awesome smoke up front, caramel, and some dark fruitiness. Touch of chocolate. Reminds me of the Tater Ridge scotch ale. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Mildly slick. Good full, kind of creamy body. Moderate sweet, lighter to moderate bitter, great balance overall. Some spiciness in the finish. Love it. Fantastic scotch ale. Great to enjoy with my short rib grilled cheese sandwich.
