From the tap @ Great Dane in Madison. Dark, nutty brown in color. Medium body. Smooth feel and taste. Not that much of a meal as some other dark beers are. Very good beer.

deyholla (10998) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2016
On tap at the Wausau location. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and caramel with some toffee underlying. Flavor has bread and grains up front with a growing toffee note.

thedm (6043) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2016
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light copper brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of crystal malt mild hops and brown malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

hotstuff (5073) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Rated on 7-04-2015 at Great Dane (Downtown) This draft beer has a beige head that mostly diminishes, reddish brown transparent body, no visible carbonation noted, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, lightly bready and hint of toffee. The flavor is caramel malt, some toffee and semi-sweet. This beer has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and it is light bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable but is on the light side for the style.

crossovert (12225) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Draft. Amber pour, super fruity type scotch ale, really yeast dominant, maybe some bubblegummy, doesnt seem to fit the style.

Dogbrick (12565) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the downtown brewpub. Clear dark copper color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, toffee and dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel, earthy malt and slight fruity hops. The finish is sweet with a peaty malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

TXBadger (2763) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a nice dark brown with off-white head. Sweetness on the nose, candied yams. Caramel, toffee, and a bit of bread on the palate. Finishes sweet.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Kind of a by the numbers homebrewish scotch ale. Too sweet. Sorta one dimensional. Dark brown. Medium to large off white creamy frothy head. A little thin.

nuplastikk (6085) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Tap at the downtown location. Unfiltered amber-brown. Thick off-white head. Sweet buttery homebrew shab aroma. Hollow medium body, odd peat smoke. True to style, if the style was a bottom of the barrel budget Scottish beer.
