An excellent beer. Was pleasantly surprised by the malting complexity of this brew. Had it at the Wausau Great Dane on tap. The aroma was inviting but not overly chocolate. Taste was a good array of malts and caramels, not overly chocolate by any means. A very nice easy drinking ale. Seems to have high ABV as well. 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. mjmurphy2 (85) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2002

Hard to choose between the Scone or the Black Earth as the Dane’s best beer on the many cold winter nights. The malt and alcohol hits you in the nose right off the bat. Nice deep mahogany/garnet brown. Big malty sweetness balanaced by alcohol bite. A Heath Bar in a glass. Highly quaffable. 1FastSTi (3358) - 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 don’t usually like scotch-style ale but this is really well done.

This was my favorite of the day. It poured a dark amber that was almost brown. The aroma was deep caramel and vanilla. The flavor had milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Not a bad scoch ale badgerben (5372) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2002
It seems to be less harsh and nutty than other Scottish Ales I've had. A nice surprise. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Dark Amber Coloring. Caramel.... Not too harsh and not too nutty as some scottish’es tend to be. Or maybe it’s my bad luck.
