3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a clear ruby-amber color with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, earthy hops and a bit of dark fruit. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Moriartys. Poured black to my eyes (in a dark bar) but proved a hazy dark amber brown under bright light. Small off-white head that left a thin foamy ring. Not much lace. Medium body. Has some of the expected Scotch Ale flavors (vegimite, peat moss, rotted celery) but feels very mild for the style. Some toffee. Little black pepper. Little earthy truffles. A few acetic notes in the aroma. Has a very clean and shiney taste. Maybe too much so. Not bad - but does not come close to the true masters of the style.
