3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pros: Aroma has some malt depth, showcasing notes of peat, maple, caramel and coffee. Nice looking beer, with ample foam. Mouth feel has a nice density. Well extracted malt notes, with lots of vibrancy.
Cons: Way too sweet, nearly ruining the overall feeling of the beer. Overbearing sweetness.
C+. Pours a black color with khaki head. Kinda bitter after taste, cookie aroma higgsbison (261) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2017
March 2014. Plenty of what makes A scotch ale a scotch ale. Full-bodied, robust,smoky and acidic. Notes of chocolate and toffee. Lots of malts and it hides the high alcohol well. And in-your-face take it or leave it brew. A slightly bitter acidic and long-lasting aftertaste. A fine brew. I enjoyed it and would drink it on tap or at a friends house,but considering it has the same number of calories as a Belgian quad I would have to pass in in favor of the quad

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2017 Pleasantly rich aroma, with a nice deep red color. Oaky taste with a nice coating mouthfeel. Finish is a bit dry and lacks the complexity of the rest of the beer, but still nice. Would drink on occasions, is cool. kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - APR 24, 2017

Clear dark amber to purple brown beer, creamy yellowish beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet, lots of dried fruits, caramel, butter scotch, soft roast, bit of banana. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: soft roast, sweet, caramel, lots of dried fruits, bit sugary. Aftertaste: slightly bitter, hoppy touch, some caramel, banana, bit malty, sweet, some alcoohol but mainly it’s pretty well hidden for a 10% ABV.
A very nice scotch ale, unique flavors. Pours a deep Amber-brown with a thin tan head. Smells of lemon squares, plums, caramel. Taste has lots of lemon, caramel, sea salt and plums. Light finish. Had in the bottle.
