JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Light fruit and malty nose with some caramel. Malty and caramelly flavor with a bit of fruit before a sweet finish. Didn’t taste overly boozy for a big beer.

Draft: Red-brown with a creamy tan head. Toffee, dark fruit scent...... Alcohol is noticeable in scent and taste. Berry, prunes, toffee malt. Strong, but very smooth.

Johnsense (858) - - MAY 21, 2014
Brown pour, huge head. Big beer - not boozy but overly sweet! Toffee and smoke aroma. Malty, toffee candy sweetness, a bit fruity. Medium body. It’s good, but not what you’d exepct from a scottish style ale - I prefer to stay on the happy side of diabetes.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
sweet as much as smoke, smoke in butterscotch and caramel. So-so drinkability.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Sampler from bottle at 2014 Price Hill Beer Fest, tasted on February 16, 2014. Dark mahogany hue, strong boozy nose, smooth but flavorful bourbon/vanilla/malt flavor. The abv is quite noticeable. Very enjoyable beer.

obguthr (4084) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Mild treacle and currant nose. Clear ruby brown, enormous tan head. I totally misjudged the pour and it overflowed a bit. Medium body, warm. Currant and plum on a malty, cereal base. Well rounded, balanced, and multi-dimensional. More fruity than most scottish/scotch ales, but that isn’t so bad. A couple bombers of this tasty brew will set you right.

burg326 (3885) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color with aromas of nuts, dark pitted fruit, booze, light wood and some earth. Flavors were caramelized dark fruit with some nut dipped in booze,a solid beer overall.

Chudwick (2215) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Tap sample - pours deep amber with no head. Sweet and woody nose. Boozy to say the least. Love it. Almost dry on the finish. Malty.

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Government shutdown beer day 2. Draft. Retry much black, brown head. Aroma of chocolate syrup. Taste is whiskey, vanilla, cocoa. Coffee. Very nice.

phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft sample at Listermann. Pours a cloudy dark brown-amber with a small off-white head that sticks around for a while. Notes of dark fruits (berries, dates, raisins), caramel, brown sugar, candied nuts, and booze. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel that warms the palate. Moderate carbonation. Big, strong Scotch ale.
