Sampler at the brewpub. It poured a dark brown color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was of sweet plums and candy canes. The flavor was a rich, smokey, deep oakey flavor, with some earthiness. A very good Scotch Ale.

Really a comforting beer and it screams scotch ale to me except for a bitterness that appears at the end and more so as it warms. Dark clear brown with amber edges and disippating head and nice lacing. Smell at first is of delicate grassy field, light toffee a caramel malt. Taste immediately sweet, then fruity esters, and then a dry malt and familiar scotch ale something, the mouthfeel is really full, creamy and gentle corbonation. It ends with a little butterscotch then a bitterness that appears out of no where but calms down to a satisfying and complex linger.

This was my first beer enjoyed at this attractive brewpub on Washington Street. The ale was served in a 10 oz glass. The deep mahagoney color and small head were very inviting. The aroma was of burnt malts and some toasted chocolate. The toasted notes do not last. The ale has a thin body and no taste of hops. This was a fun drink to evaluate.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a tap into a pint at Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis, Minn. Color was malty and dark looking. About ¾-inch of head.
Smells included amber, malts, caramel and bitterness.
Tasted immediately like caramel or toffee. Malts came in there, too. Smooth taste.
Nice mouthfeel. Very low carbonation and a smooth finish.
So glad I picked this beer after being a bit disappointed with the West Bank Pub Ale. Check it out if you are in the Twin Cities area.
