Pours deep amber into the glass, with a diminishing eggshell head that reduces to sparse lacing, almost no ring of bubbles. The nose is of chocolates and malt. The flavors are similar, light toast, caramel, toffee, milk chocolate and a definitive Yoo-Hoo Chocolate Drink essence. The body is light, active on the palate, not seriously "substantive" nor complex, but it’s by far the best mass-produced offering from the brewery I’ve had in a long line of trial offerings. It finishes a bit doughy (as is the predominance of many Appalachian brews), but has enough Scotch Ale contingencies to at least be considered an attempt. amild (4) - - FEB 22, 2013 does not count
Don’t like the beer at all. Just tasted awful. I hope that you don’t try it. Ok appearance but don’t like it. radio_nowhere (1474) - Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12oz bottle from variety pack. Poured into pint glass, very deep clear amber-copper color with creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, toast and some chocolate notes. Taste is very creamy, roasty sweetness dominating, notes of toffee with the slightest of earthy hops. Medium body, malty and sweet. My first Scottish ale, maybe a few other examples can win me over for this style. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Draft at gettysburg location. Red clear pour, with a short, off white head. Caramel, light hop bitterness, malty, and somewhat watery. I’m not a fan of this style really. jcos (1855) - Maryland, USA - NOV 10, 2012

Appearance: Poure a nice dark maroon.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel malt, some faint smoke.
Taste: Faint bitterness, caramel, hint of grapefruit.
Palate:Medium light body, shirt aftertaste.
Summary: Solid scotch ale, a slightly under appreciated style. Solid beer.
Nice reddish, coppery color with a nice foamy head. It had a light coffee aroma with a light bitter taste. Nicely pleasing on the palate with a robust coffee, caramel hit. Dunkelstar (19) - Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours red copper color with minimal head. Smell is sweet with hints of caramel. Smooth, cream like initial taste with caramel. Low hop medium malt. Good body. Smooth finish with a hint of bitterness. Overall a good beer. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Draft. No head, cloudy light brown to caramel. Full body, some carbonation, moderate flavors not a mossy scotch at all . Different for style but I like.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber-copper pour with white head. Aroma of slightly smokey, rich english malt with a hint of english hops. Taste is sweet, but also very roasty, lots of toffee, dark toasted malt. Palate is light, a tad watery. Good. Travlr (26268) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Draft at the source. Hazy amber color. Aroma of caramel and toast. Taste is slightly burnt butterscotch.
