500ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a small tan head that sticks around and laces nicely. Sweet malt aroma. I love scotch ales and this one doesnt disappoint. Just the right amount of sweetness. Caramel and malt flavor, dark fruits, and a bit of smoke and hops. Beatifully balanced. The only gripes I have is that its too expensive ($3.99 a bottle) and too hard to find to drink on a regular basis. Delicious.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2005
Clear mahogany body, small, tight tan head. Aroma of caramel malts and sweetness, somewhat smoky. Flavor is predominantly a rich, smoky maltiness, with a somewhat thin palate. Overall quite pleasing to drink.

Bottle. Pleasing deep chestnut color. Nice whitish head that fades to a ring and persists. Aroma is nicely reminiscent of scotch whiskey with smoked peat notes blended with sweet malt and a bit of fruity aromas as well. Flavor is nicely balanced, rich and malty up front with a pleasing hop balance towards the end. Bits of smoke throughout. Thin in body which is a dissappointment. Nicely done overall.

1 pint. Was expecting something more sweet to be honest. Aroma was a little burnt and taste was indistinguishable smoked coffee. Almost a smokehouse beer feel in the aroma and taste, minus the meats. Not nearly as thick and distinguishable though. A slight bitter end which was rather pleasant. A sipping beer as the bottle suggest. Malt, caramel, and some dried fruits hidden nicely. I wish they had this in the bars here.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Decent brew. Not my favorite style, but a nice change from the over-hopped west coast stuff around my area. Beautiful clear dull redish brown color. Head stays beady till the end.

Bottle. Reddish brown with a light tan head. Nose: burned caramel, wood smoke and vanilla. Taste: bread dough, caramel, molasses and scotch whisky.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Deep amber on the pour with a consistent off white head. Aromas of port wine, roastedness, breads, and a slight touch of citrus. Fairly thick consistancy with flavors of roasted malts balanced with some hops, day old coffee, and a smokey finish. This beer left a wonderful looking lacing on the glass.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 From the bottle it poured a brownish/red with a slight head. A fruit and spice aroma led to a caramel sweet tast that finished with a warming alc and a nutty finish.

frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2005
A hazy, dark mahogany/brown with an average tan head. Citrusy-sour aromas of apple with mild notes of coffee and scotch. Did not expect the overwhelming sugary-sweetness as I took a swig. Caramel flavors and a syrupy finish. Felt like I was drinking hard liquor... or a Jack and Coke. Too sweet.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Dark brown under a thick khaki head and a good amount of lacing. Slightly smokey aroma with roasted malt and coffee. Flavor followed the aroma but with the roasted malt taking the lead role well supported by bittersweet chocolate and dark coffee with just enough hop bitterness to make all of the flavors play nice together. Long, silky finish with a little warming alcohol and a spicy kick. If you can find this locally, dont pass it up.
