COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This malty and flavorful beer is deep copper red in color and has a remarkably smooth taste. Brown sugar augments the grain bill to add a sweet mouth-feel that blends exquisitely with ample Cascade hops. Enjoy! (OG 1.074, IBUís 28-30, Alc 6.5% a/v)

Pours a copper red color with a small tan head. Aroma of honey and caramel. Roasted and caramel malt gives a nice sweetness and a touch of bitterness.

[1668-20080906] Tap. Sweet honeyed malt aroma has a bit of caramel. Clear, dark brown red body with a quick bubbly light tan head. Caramel malt and roasted sweet leaves flavour. Medium-full body. A little rough but so was the man, I hear.

2008-09-06. Deep ruby tinged brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Flavour has a good sweet malt base with earth character and touches of sugar, alcohol. Surprisingly amount of bitterness is okay, but not what I look for in a scotch ale. (6+) Mild malt aroma has an earth character that foreshadows the same in the flavour. (6+) Average palate is adequate but thin for my preference. On tap at the brewpub.

On tap at the brewpub July 10. Gorgeous copper red color. Very malty, tasted of brown sugar and cascade hops, although the malt definitely overwhelmed the hops. Smooth and creamy, with sweetness on the front, yet finished kinda weak in my book. Can’t begin to compare to my favorite, Founder’s Dirty Bastard.

One of my absolute favorite beers of all times. Unfortunately I canít give the rating justice. I had this beer years & years ago. Iím transferring an old rating to my current account.

Stopped by the snow goose while in anchorage. Had the bravehart and it wasnt too bad, kinda safe for a scottish ale, didnít have too much flavor but was a good addition to the steak and halibut....

On tap at the 06 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Murky dark amber color with a foamy tan head that quickly dissapates to a ring. Roasted grain nose with some hints of something Iíll call leather. Malty beer with some ripe plum, dark sugar and an almost burnt grain roastiness.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2005
On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Brown beer. Smooth malt with an undertone of sweet sugar and sharp finish. Drinkable, but not a "scottish" to be sure.

I think they meant Scotch ale and not Scottish. There is a big difference. Irregardless my sample had an off butterscotch flavour which was distracting and was slighty cloudy as well. The Hop rate was appropiate to balance the malty/sweeness. But low score reflects the poor quality of the pint I had.

Garnet with a slight haze. Slight tingle hop aroma, caramel malts, bit of cookie flavor, very little smokiness.
