Poured into a tulip. Wonderful dark amber with very little head. Dissipates quickly to a ring around the glass. Nice malty smell. I get a little biscuit too. Taste is mostly malt with a little caramel and a clean finish. Well carbonated. Very easy to drink. It would be no problem to sit and work through a few of these.

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.

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.

From bottle. Dark copper color. Aroma is malty with notes like coffee. Flavor is caramel and fairly dry. Little to no hoppiness. This beer is understated and gets better toward the bottom of the glass. Delicious. I could drink this every day.

Pours a copper red with a small light tan head. Nose is malt and maple syrup. Extremely creamy on the palate- very pleasing taste of malt, caramel and maple syrup. Slightly sweet on the finish like a dopplebock. Pairs well with light snacks and Irish stew. Go figure.

This a nice BIG Malt Bomb of a brew. If you love a double bock like Salvator, or a beer like Three Floyds Robert the Bruce, Scottish Ale, your gonna love this brew.

Pours a nice copper/amber color with a medium creamy beige head.Wonderful caramel malt aromas that are backed by deep roasted malt aromas and a hint of peat in the background. Flavor is of roasted dark caramel malts that fades into a slight earthy/hop bite. Nice tingle on the tongue thats goes to a sweet malt finish.Very good brew!
