Bottle. Brownish red beer with a strong head. It has a sour aroma with a sour and fruity flavour, and hints of smokiness. Overall a reasonable scotch ale, which seems to mean sour or smokey flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at The Counter in Palo Alto. Pretty average for the style. Deep dark brown color with a small tan head. Sweet malt dominates the aroma, some roastiness. Flavor is really malty with caramel and a little smoke. Pretty average palate for the style - medium-to-full body.

Blairgus (4472) - California, USA - NOV 20, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 20 nov 2011, tap. Really dark ruby. Nose is def strong coffee grounds. Def not what I think of with a scotch ale. Med body and fizzy. Soft sugary chocolate ovaltine, slightly meaty, lots of coffee. Actually nice, but Iíd never call this a Scottish ale. More of a slightly sweet, meaty, coffee stout.

The aroma is sweet and rich with butterscotch caramel and grassy hops. The appearance is deep amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a slight butter finish. The palate is oily. The beer is good overall.

Red brown w/ a small white head. Roasty nose and flavor. Very mild w/ a big, malty taste. Drinkable w/ mild carbonation and not too sweet.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 29, 2012
On tap at Jasperís Corner Tap, SF. Dark copper to dark brown pour, very lively and well carbonated. Nose was deep caramel malts and a healthy dose of peat, with some smoke in there for good measure. Mouthfeel a bit odd, seeming watery at one moments and fullish the next. Taste was heavy on chocolate and cola, with peat and smoke more understated than in the nose. Decent.

hawthorne00 (3848) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2013
Can. Clear dark brown with a modest beige head that nevev quite disappears. Aroma of toffee, toast, prunes, mild spices, a whiff of smoke. Taste is sweet with dried and stewed fruits, toffee, pepper, burnt toast. No real depth in the malty flavours, which at 7%+ makes me wonder. A bit astringent as well as peppery at the end.
