On tap at the brewery. Pours a murky, mahogany amber with one ring of white head. A little oily looking too. Nose has some fusel alcohol, raisin, orange, prune, some butterscotch. Flavors of butterscotch, prune, raisin, some chocolate, a little rum, some mild bitterness. Oily, boozy finish. Something a bit off. Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Pours a hazy reddish brown with a thin tan head, aroma has caramel and sweet malts, starts and ends lightly sweet, full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2011
On tap at the brewpub: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a small-bubbled froth of off-white head. Has a sweet toasty dark caramel nose with a touch of raisins. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark malty sweetness with some light fruity complexity and mild bitter hop balance before a semi-sweet dark caramel finish. Could use a little more peat character, but still pretty true to style and hides the alcohol quite well. Travlr (26067) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Draft. Clear dark brown color. Aroma of chocolate and butterscotch. Taste is very boozy chocolate.

Draft on 12/31/10. Arrived at the table a murky mahogany color with a thick khaki head. A fairly sweet aroma of caramel, toffee, vanilla extract, dark chocolate, and a touch of coffee. Medium to full-bodied and pretty smooth on the way down. No real surprises taste-wise - lots of caramel and toffee upfront, vanilla extract qualities and some dark chocolate in the middle, and a bittering coffee finish. Well-hidden alcohol. Very enjoyable. l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Served ruddy brown, soapy head, minimal carbonation. minimal aroma. Smooth and a bit thick on the tongue, super malty, caramel, peaty and sweet. Actually quite easy to drink though not as bold as I expected for a scotch ale. Tasty, nonetheless argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2010
