22 oz Bottle-trade w/after4ever. Poured a dark ruby red color w/almost no head. Sweet, roasted, malty aroma. Sweet, caramel, malty, toffee, honey roasted, flavor. Even a little bit of a tangy, mustard flavor w/some smokey peat. Reminded me somewhat of a Nut Brown or Honey Brown Ale. Very nice brew, you do get a little kick from the alcohol.

beerabill (14) - Silverdale, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2006
On tap at the brewery, and in a grouler from the brewery. This one is a fine ale. Held up to the light, the color is brown diamond. Big tastey mouthfeel, with the taste of caramel honey malt. This is a strong scotch ale, but the aftertaste is smooth, and sweet. A regular friday night brew for me. Very good.

unclejedi (2) - Madison, Alabama, USA - SEP 4, 2006 does not count
Best Scotch Ale from my recent Seattle trip, sampled both on tap at the brewpub and from one of the bottles I brought home. Sweet caramal malt, pours with a light brown creamy head. Very smooth finish with a touch of alcohol.

IndianaRed (2316) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 9, 2007 Bottle Pours a clear, very dark redish brown with a small light tan head. Lacing is soptty. Woody, and fruity aroma. Raisons, pitted fruit, licorice. Flavor is similar, a bit vinous, lightly smokey, a bit sweet and of dark brown sugar, and plums. Some alcohol nets as well, but does not detract Thin but slick feel and fairly lively carbonation.
