A big bastard of an award winning brew. Exceptionally smooth with rich maltiness and a touch of smoky peat character.

Rating #1913 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 12 - Bottleshare. Pours a really dark brown with a bubbly tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is earthy, molasses, toffee, mild peat. Taste is quite sweet at first, malt and toffee, full bodied. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Great peat notes make this phenomenal.

SeaTac, Wa - on tap at the Seattle Taproom in the Seattle Airport. Murky, dark amber pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma has some peat, toffee, some nuttiness . Delectable flavor with some nice toffee accents, a hint of chocolate, some earthy peat notes in the back end. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Final and Rating #51 of my 2016 vacation. It was a helluva trip!

Everything I like in a scotch ale - not perfected, but there. Malty, big in body, fruity and slightly smoky. Smooth going down.

Not as flavorful as some other Scotch Ales that I have had but this one is really smooth with rich maltiness & a touch of smoky peat character. Silver City is becoming one of my favorite Washington breweries!

Woah. Love this. It's hard. Tastes like a scrap of leather. In a good way. Smells like alcohol. Very scotchy, I can almost taste scotch whiskey..peaty.

Draught at CBM. Starts off nicely with a silky body, pleasant scotch and smokey notes, then peat and tobacco kind of take over and finish is on the boozy side. Not the smoothest scotch ale, kind of struggled towards the end of the glass.

Tons of caramel and sweet malt here. Pours dark brown with ok head. Syrupy and sweet. Doesnt come together well, a bit of a sweet mess. Tap at Seattle Taproom.

Draft. Mahogany brown pour, thin beige head. Aroma of toffee, brown sugar, a little booze. Fairly sweet taste, not overly. Slightly syrupy body.

Pours a deep brown with a very minimal light beige head. Lots of malt along with some caramel, tootsie roll and booze on the nose. Taste is fairly similar, but something weird is going on on the finish. The nose is great, but the taste doesnt live up to it. Light peat on the palate as well as a slightly boozy finish that lingers.

Purchased at a bar at the Seattle airport. Pours a very dark brown with a lot of creamy off white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of scotch, malts and something sweet. First sip is amazing. Good hint of scotch and very smooth taste. Has a good balance between the richness of heavy malts and the sweet flavors along with the peat scotch flavor.
