Sampled on tap at Square One on 01/12. Pours a deep red-brown color with off white head. Malty, caramel flavors. This beer doesn’t quite match your typical scotch style.

Tap @ Square One. Pours a dark orangish brown appearance with a disappearing white head. Caramel, toasted malty, herbal, a bit smoky aroma. Fairly herbal, smoked, burnt caramel, a bit earthy flavor. Really just not my style, but I had a hard time drinking it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
October 30, 2012 on tap at brewpub. Clear light brown pour with head that faded quickly. Aroma was malty and caramel . Taste was consistent with a slight spicy bitterness in the finish but almost too sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap at brewpub Good coloring. Not sweet at all. A definite spike in the bittering, doughy, peaty, quick crisp finish, although some tannic qualities linger on. Not ale-y enough, but well-balanced and very drinkable., I expected it to get a little bit more caramel as it warmed, but it didn’t. This almost reminds me of an alt. Good, drinkable, but just mildly Scottish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly sweet aroma with amber appearance and thin head. Malty taste with caramel finish. Notes of scotch with subtle woody flavor. Smooth finish. Overall a delicious beer and goes very well with the Square One on-site distilled whiskey served neat on the side.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the brewpub. The pour is a dark brown with a tan head. Flavor is again more malty but not any smokiness or toffee. Just a heavy malted brew. Not bad if you like Scotch Ales.
