Sweeter and fruitier than the base, which at first whiff was a put off, but it opened up very nicely to the point I liked it a little more in the end.

A very good scotch ale. Pours a deep Amber with little head. Smells of dark fruit, green grapes, plum and whiskey. Taste has a oak and whiskey sweetness, with more dark fruit. Sweet finish. Had in the bottle.

8oz draft at Chuck’s CD. Caramel or light brown banana is most prominent aspect. Interesting for a Scotch ale. Lightly woodsy, no hoppiness, light bodied, no oak or wood aspects. I like it but I would never call it a Scotch Ale.

Delightful scotch. Excellent mouthfeel & deliciously flavored. This is one fine scotch & hides the 9% very well! The caramel really stands out as well as it’s smoothness! Very good!

Pours a deep mahogany color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is spicy vanilla, burnt sugar, some apple, molasses and composted fruit. Palate is super awkward, lots of banana, nilla wafers, cream soda, spicy raisins... Weird.
