From the bottle, peaty malt aroma with some nice caramel malts in the flavor and a damn good taste. A big fan of this scotch ale.

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.

Bottle. Light cherry, caramel malt, and alcohol aroma. Hazy orange-brown with small head. Sweet caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Nice body. Solid, tasty beer.

Love this beer. Very malty and enjoyable. Good color, aroma, and palate. I hope my scotch ale that I’m brewing turns out as good.

Phenols dominate the nose. Color is spot on for a Scotch Ale. A bit too chocolately for my tastes, but I’m not complaining. Good balance of malt sweetness that hits you for a second up front followed by the abundance of chocolate.

Earthy, spicy. Pretty standard. Watery but sticky. It’s tasty enough but doesn’t swing for the fences.
