Opaque black - brown beer with a good size tan head. Nice mildly salted caramel in the head. Softish palate with a little fine carbonation. Smooth malt, soft and sweet with a nice creamy vibe. Interesting fruity things going on underneath. Touches of toffee, marmite and licorice. Whisper of bubblegum before the smooth finish. Mild minerals. Dont think I have had a better Scotch Ale than this. Unexpected cracker.

Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige top. Dark toast, caramel, toffee, cocoa in the aroma. Flavor is very sweet with toffee, candy, light chocolate, alcohol-soaked leaves and berries. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm, fairly sticky finish, lots of candied sugar, sweet toast, brown sugar, alcohol, caramel. Nicely nuanced beer. Certainly sweet, so it helps if you like that.

The color is almost back, with creamy brownish head. The aroma of dark malts is mild but subtle, interesting, with light bread and light smoke. Its full bodied, with round and smooth mouthfeel; the flavor is a succession of waves: malt, chocolate, molasses; there is a moderate sweetness and some light smoke; some bitterness just in the final, that gets just slightly dry.
Great balanced beer, that can be sipped for long, and enjoyed with cheese.

Scopey (13766) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog Online. It pours very, very dark brown, with a beige head. The nose is roasted malt, wood, chocolate, honey and liquorice. The taste is liquorice, roasted malt, dark fruit, wood, tar, coffee, burnt malt and a little alcohol warmth, with a dry roasted finish. Medium to full body, moderate body and velvety mouth-feel. Not as hoppy as the usual Brewdog offerings, but for this style thats not necessarily a bad thing. A well made Scottish Scotch Ale.

jmgreenuk (8673) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 9, 2013
Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a very dark chesnut brown with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is malt with a little yeast thrown into the mix. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, nutty and with lots of roasted malt on the palate. The aftertaste is big nutty and sticks around forever!
