rbrazell (1576) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Deep ruby brown with a soapy white head that has nice lacing. Nose is sweet toffee, candi sugars, baked bread and a touch of smokiness. SLightly sweet entry with toffee malts, candi sugars, bread with some underlying dark fruits and smoke. Medium bodied with a peaty, slightly alcoholic finish. Not bad.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear deep amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, toasted bread, toffee. Some overripe fruit and alcohol also in the nose. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium, watery texture, lively carbonation. Big alcohol finish. Thin body for a Scotch ale of this abv.

@Basunen:ingen större doft. Ek heller någon större smak. Lite lätt malt, annars inget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

jrodooo5 (925) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Good deep copper pour w/ a tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. The aroma is primarily dominated by sweet caramel. The taste is quite different from the aroma. It’s smoky & dry w/ the caramel kind of a soft undertone. A little bit different than the previous scotch’s I’ve had before but still a good beer!

HonusWagner (1328) - Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2014
2 year aged bottle, consumed while watching "The Naked Spur". Sweet toffee malt notes, light peat smoke character, mild bitterness in finish. Somewhat dull and plain, though not bad.

HULK777 (328) - - JUN 10, 2014
Caramelized sugar and alcohol aroma. Dry taste of coffee and dark bread. Hints of smoke in a mild and dry palate, with very moderate fruits/hops aftertaste.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et stort flot skumhoved. Ekstrem maltet duft med en stor maltsmag. Fin øl men lidt ensformig i længden.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
8.2% ABV
Brown color, clean, with compact head. Light aroma, some caramel and an impression of bread. Correct body strength; lean mouthfeel; some caramel flavor and correct bitterness.
Just a boring Imperial Amber Ale. This beer didn’t capture the essence of anything.
