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

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. Doesn’t 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.

willisread (1896) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2015
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 doesn’t live up to it. Light peat on the palate as well as a slightly boozy finish that lingers.

dslam (101) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
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.

Capa (2556) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Medium dark red with a beige head. Smoke right up front with a big chunk of caramel malt in the back. The smoke kind if kills most the other flavors. If you like em smokey this is for you.

andrewje41 (2405) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a really dark brown color with a creamy head. Sweet candy caramel aroma. Flavor has a touch of smokiness up front. Very sweet flavor though. Very nice addition to the style. Enjoyed this.

An interesting scotch ale, almost more like boozy apple juice then beer. Pours a beautiful deep clear red with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of Apple, malt, and cedar. Taste is very much apple juice, less carbonated than cider. Tasty, but a bit one note.
