Clear and dark red with little head. Big in body with flavors of vanilla and toffee. A bit one dimensional.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2005
Sampled at the 3rd Annual "Between the Bluffs" Beer and Cheese Festival in La Crosse, WI. Appearance: tan head, clear brown body. No carbonation. Aroma is mild oakiness, mild chocolate, kinda weak. Flavor is chocolate, mild peatiness, oak cask, light coffee. Palate is a little dry, sweet tangy finish. Moderate mouthfeel. Overall, I dont usually like scotch-style ale but this is really well done.

A bit sweet and malty for this type but alcohol was there. It was a good tasting beer.

meadlover1959 (14) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2005
A nice example of the style. Pleasantly sweet but definite alcohol. I enjoyed the beer, but not something I can drink a lot of. This is an occasional beer - something reserved for a special night.

Always like this one. Rich caramel color and flavor characterize this ale. Nice alcohol presence with the sweet malt. Smooth finish that lingers well.

Terminus (3662) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2005
tap at Brewpub-Fitchburg, WI-pours a copper hue with a small whtie head around glass edge. Malty sweet aroma-I didnt get any peat, but i did get the dark caramel. i got maple surup also in the aroma. Big malty flavors consisting of maple surup, sliglty vineous, and caramelly. Big beer and was a little hot on the alchohol. Not a bad rendition of this style

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Growler: decent, though bubbly off-white head over a clear plum coloured body. Rich malty nose, with hints of peat, dark caramel, red grapes, and mud. Uneven palate that has some grit and also seems smooth at times. Flavours boast a huge bit of malt, but do have a small hop companion. Toffee and caramel, along with a strage peat/smoke/malt flavour are okay, but nothing to amazing.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Dark Amber Coloring. Caramel.... Not too harsh and not too nutty as some scottishes tend to be. Or maybe its my bad luck.

I can tell I was drunk when I got to this one. My quote stated "Scotch beer. Smells like scotch, taste like people".

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Clear dark ruby/whiskey color, off-white creamy lasting ring around the glass. Coffee/caramel aroma. Sweet coffee liquor taste with some toffee and a fruity sourness. Not bad, but I dont like the seemingly awkward sourness.
