Pours brown with a tan head. Malt aroma with chocolate and caramel. Nice malt/hop bite and caramel in the finish. Pretty good Scotch ale.
Torn on this. Dark fruit and mystery but a faint metallic twang ruins the finish for me. trentejgordon (6) - - AUG 7, 2017 does not count
Not much aroma. Doesn't have the harsh aftertaste of some Scotch Ales. Not my favorite beer type.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 It’s good, but I’m also not really impressed by it. It’s more similar to Barley wines I’ve had then scotch ales honestly. DWestrick (765) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2017

12 oz bottle from in-laws. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with modest-sized light tan head. Aroma is roast, toast, light peat and dark fruitiness. Flavour is plum, prune, lightnpeat, toasted grains and light roasty chocolate. Slick mouthfeel. Nice.

Deep hazy dark copper hue with a ivory cap. Earthy toffee and boozy musty tones. Yummy sweet earthy bready malt flavors with a kiss of moss and dark malty Scotch tones. Smooth and nutty and earthy boozy sweet. Nice. bigtaster (991) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2016
From a bottle into pint glass. Nice one finger light brown head that sticks around for a while, dark brown beer with some light coming through on the edges. Brown sugar, yeast, caramelized sugars. Medium to high carbonation, sweet, medium body, hint of bitterness. Long finish of sweet brown sugar with a hint of burnt toast. JDBaker11058 (2254) - Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2016
