Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc and tupalev at the hotel after the MBG Summer Festival - blankboy’s bottle. Murky ruby-brown with a moderate off-white head. Big, sweet aroma of rich malt and smoky whisky. Average body. Quite flavourful - very malty, with some dark sugar notes, and a fair amount of booziness as it warms. Not bad.
Dark malt amber with an imbued hue of dark red producing a creamy head. Aromas hay, caramel, light toffee, candy sugar/brown sugar and some toasty/nutty. Flavors light brown sugar, light toffee/caramel, lightly nutty. Lightly sweet with just a slight roasty aftertaste. Has some subtle complexities to it that make the style. rougeau13 (3311) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, metal, toast and soap. Tastes sweet and toasty and a little bitter. Medium bodied but thinnish. neroaga (58) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2017
Dark ale with no head and little carbonation. It has a light malty taste with some smokey notes dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2017
Torn on this. Dark fruit and mystery but a faint metallic twang ruins the finish for me. trentejgordon (10) - - AUG 7, 2017
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 (864) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2017
