Be wary of this sweet, roasty, full-bodied behemoth. If you’re not careful, this strong Scotch-style ale will gobble you up. Imported malt, hops, and yeast provide authentic highland flavor.

blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. Sweetish malty aroma with some lighter earthy notes. The flavor has sweet malts, candy sweetness, and some earthy notes. Tasty and well balanced.

adrian910ss (2594) - Doylestown, PA, USA - AUG 11, 2010
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark yet clear rusty orange amber with a small off white head. Aroma of buttery notes, barley, and candied malts. Taste of buttery notes, candied malt, tangy hops, earth and grains.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Malty aroma on this brown pour. Taste sweet, like sugar and fruit. Too sweet for my liking, most scotches are a little more on the robust side than this one. Smooth and tasty nonetheless.

Slipstream (2702) - USA - MAY 12, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pretty flat, dark brown pour. Butter, caramel, prune, and some hoppy nip. This Nessie is an average scotch ale.

Dorwart (2609) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Thin head of dense and creamy bubbles. Light carbonation. Awesome aroma loaded with sweet malts, vanilla, malted milk balls, dark fruit and some milk chocolate. Color is a dark brown. Luscious flavor. Lots of malts, milk chocolate, caramel and a hint of peat. No real smokiness which is unfortunate. Chewey palate but silky smooth and goes does so easy. Mild alcohol presence. Finishes smooth and malty. A very fine scotch ale. Glad I was able to make it out to sample this one.

Sampled from a growler on 2/13/07: Pours a very dark mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing coating of light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel with some peaty notes and a touch of dark fruitiness. Body starts fairly sweet and full with earthy caramel maltiness and some light smoke and dark fruits. A very nice Scotch ale.
