4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I'm not one to make a professionally written review, so I'll keep this simple. I admit I bought this initially because of the name, but I've always been a Scotch Ale fan. This is one of the best, richest beers I've ever had. Great mouthfeel and a fantastic taste across the board. Rich, chocolately and a nice caramel finish, this beer is going to be a staple in my fridge for the foreseeable future.

Pours a medium amber with some lacy white head. Aroma is malty with lots of caramel. Not too much roasted notes though. Taste is sweet with a crisp bitter finish. Overall very balanced and canít really taste the alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer after a hard night.

Pours a muddy brown with a small off white head and aroma of toasty malt and caramel. Taste is of toasted malt, caramel, fruit notes, and chocolate with a dry, medium finish. Very drinkable for a scotch ale and nice flavors

Pours a thick and murky soft brown with a thin sandy yellow tan had. Bready/buiscuity malts in the nose, herbal and earthy malts. Earthy and vinous malt notes in the flavor. Raisiny bready. Coffee. Muddled and weird. Coffee-ish sweetness on the finish. Full bodied with a slight carbonation.
