Thanks to Jaaaaarspaaaaaggggg in sunny cali for this baby. Bottle less than a year old. Have another that I will age for at least one more year before retrying. Pours a dark nut brown with thin tan head that dissipates quickly to an ever so small ring around the glass, no lacing. Aroma of toasted to slightly roasted malts, alcohol, whiskey, raisins, and chocolate. Flavor matches well, alcohol dominates and a bit more bitterness than expected. Mouthfeel is thin, slick, and surprisingly lively in carbonation. Finishes dry, bitter, lots of chocolate, and a bit metallic. Overall very nice, but might do better with some age.
Dark brown to black in color, foamy beige head... Aroma of peated malts, caramel, smoke... Flavor of dark fruits, peat, caramel, toffee, light smoke, nuts... solid wee heavy

Drank from a glass, poured from a bottle,
this beer was dark brown in the glass, and gave a off-white / light tan cover of bubbles, it left nice spots and fingers of lacing on the glass,
when I first popped the cap, I got a nice mix of caramel and chocolate mixed with big malty notes,
it had aromas of dark and intense toasted malt, caramel, toffee, dark candy, a little horehound in the background, faint dark fruit (similar to raisin and date),
faint earthy and smokey aromas on the nose, faint alcohol esters, and brown sugar sweetness,
the flavors were malty, dark intense malt, caramel, dark candy, brown sugar,
the finish had a bit of a alcohol spice bitterness to give some balance to the malt and sweetness, the malt layers and coats the tongue,
faint chocolate in the background, caramel and dark candy hung around,
this beer leaned towards the full side in the mouth, there was soft to average carbonation, and it was creamy and coated the mouth with each drink,
the nose was great with a generous malt notes, the flavors were just as nice as the aromas,
a very nice Scotch from AleSmith. wekker84 (2360) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2017

From a bomber. Pours a dark brown and makes a thin beige head. Not much lacing. I recommend letting this ale warm up a bit if you have it stored in a fridge. (I would cellar). Aroma is of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and booze. Tastes of dark fruits (plum, raisin, currant), cherries, roasted malts, complex yeasts, and molasses. This is a beautiful interpretation of the scotch ale style. One of the best.

Sporo suszonych, ciemnych owoców, karmel, troche toffi, czekolady. Dymionych aromatów jest tutaj jak na lekarstwo. W smaku słodkie - poziom słodyczy raczej stabilny przez całą degustację. Wysoce pijalne, lekko ulepkowate, takie lekko śliwkowe rzekłbym. NIe zaskakuje, nie powala. tryemallonce (27) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Beautiful scotch aroma. Nice rich head of small tan bubbles. I get lots of caramel, toffee and malt right away on the taste. Full, creamy texture. One of, if not the best Scotch Ale I’ve had. SG111 (1786) - New York, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Tap at Rochester Tap House. Pours deep mahogany, beige head. Aroma is lots of caramel, fig, toffee plums, dark fruit, really nice nose. Flavor is caramel, fig, toffee, sweet dark fruit nose. Body is kinda nitro-ish. A bit thin. Nose is great. DeliriumT (537) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2017
Pours almost black with little to no head. Aroma of rich toffee, caramel, toast and treacle. Very faint hints of Christmas fruit, raisin and rum. The flavour is an impressively rich toffee explosion. This is seriously good beer!

Dark ruby brown color with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel, toffee, subtle raisin, and soft florals. Flavors are layers of smooth caramel, prune, and a dry toffee and smoke malt undertone.
