Bottle; poured a dark brown/black. Aroma of cocoa, molasses,smoke. Flavor molasses, smoke; overall malty; dark fruit/fig.
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Could almost mistaken it for a cola in appearance, aroma and taste! Brown/black with very little head. Some sweet. biscuit malts in aroma. Toffee scotch taste, quite sweet. Not too much scotch though, not overpowering. Very decent. J_man (1025) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Holy foam-over, Batman!! This thing burst from the bottle when I opened it and foamed up like crazy when I poured it. Sometimes that's a bad sign, but not in this case. Deep, dark brown body with a (wait for it) *very* foamy tan head. Loads of cocoa, molasses and brown sugar in the aroma. More molasses and dark brown sugar in the taste with a bit of dark roast coffee and toasted wood. A bit of smoky wood peaks out after this but not in a campfire way. Some more cocoa powder and a little root beer come later. Finishes with a milk and dark chocolate flavor and a creamy body. Excellent Scotch ale! sebsky (389) - ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2017

Tastes like rich chocolate, dark chocolate, smoke and all are present through a long, smooth finish. Very strong nutty/roasted nut flavor. There is some sweetness, more fruity than sugary. I like the flavor profile quite a bit. Herbal bitter hops to balance, maybe stronger than I would have liked. This reminds me more of an imperial stout than a scotch ale. Dark brown/red, clear, tan head that dissipates. Moderate to thin palate. dwyerpg (6494) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 6, 2016
A solid scotch ale. Some thickness and sweetness but a good balance. Not really my style but nice nonetheless. olio (10672) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 29, 2016

(22oz. bottle) - Big rocky off-white head, which collapses. Dark reddish body when held up to a light. Malty aroma. Flavors of grain and a bit of light brown sugar. A tad of bitterness on the tail end for balance. Very nice job!
