Draft served in thistle glass at restaurant. Orange-amber color with small tan head. Aroma of sweet roasty malts and light fruit. Taste is rich malt sweetness and some hints of vanilla and nuts. Fully body, creamy mouth-feel, didn’t taste the alcohol at all (nicely hidden). Pretty tasty.
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden brownish orange with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, citrus. Tastes of caramel, tropical fruit, malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Weird fruitiness for a scotch ale. OnTheTrail (507) - Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2016

2014 best scotch Ale, ever!! ... Thank you Tom!
Great flavor without the over-the-top Scotch barrel taste. Nice lacing and more than adequate alcohol warmth. snoworsummer (5694) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Cask at Brewer’s Alley. Pours hazy brown with a creamy white head. Tastes very smooth and creamy, like toffee, malt, caramel, banana, apple. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells sour, malty, and like apples. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2013

Great nutty aroma and hearty, robust flavor. I enjoyed this beer and would try it again. popdoggy (100) - USA - JAN 13, 2008
Nice sweetness. I didnt get any warming sensation, and like most b.a. beers almost no head and soda mouthfeel. 2nd best of the night.
