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

[At GABF 2004] A brown beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is very sweet and fruity with a slight note of alcohol. A nice Scotch ale.

(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear, reddish brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma of wood and dried fruit. Very soft mouthfeel. Medium body with lots of sweetness and roasted malts, some dried fruit and some wood. Very pleasant indeed. 061006

omhper (23017) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
Bottled. Clear nut brown. Appley toffee aroma. Sweet and mellow with medium body and sticky mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Warming perhaps, but it’s too cloying.

fiulijn (18598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Draught at Seattle Tap Room (Sea-Tac Airport)
Brown color, dark and clean, with small creamy head. Nutty beer, full bodied: good caramel component, with moderate sweetness; the aroma is too simple, the flavor quite nice; light fruity esters complete the picture in a pleasant way; correct bitterness. Could be mistaken for a Doppelbock as it’s very clean.

Draught@Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle
"Fat Bastard Scotch Ale". Dark ruby, nut brown color, small beige head. Caramel, berries (red currant, strawberry) in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish, caramelly, fudge, some berries. Lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. Quite well in style: strong and toffeish.

brokensail (15642) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Dark brown pour with a white head. Nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and toffee. Some butterscotch, vanilla, alcohol, and maybe a light nuttiness. There’s a lot of malty sweetness to the flavor. Plenty of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. Notes of vanilla, dark fruit, and chocolate. Toasted nuts, light alcohol, and a nice toast character.

Oakes (15358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Very dark chestnut colour. Slightly toffeeish, slightly minty aroma. Chewy malt flavours. Some flowery accents amidst all the toffee lend character. Earthy maltiness in the finish.

bhensonb (13862) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Bomber from Suzy Greenberg. Thanks Ben. Pours dark ruby with a fine foamy tan head. Smells like malt. Medium body with fine carbonation. Flavor is smooth malt with some smoke and vanilla. There’s enough bitter to help sooth the malt. Drinks very well.
