This one, just from the pour, has the appearance of a stout. The taste and aroma is a little scotchy, but overall its a little too bland for my liking, but it was worth a try.

bigbish (697) - California, USA - FEB 10, 2010
A tasty Scotch ale. Malty aroma, lots of malt and caramel flavors. A nice thick head that sits on top of the beer and just begs you to drink it. Good stuff.

tilldeath (109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Very sweet upfront, but finished off by good strong bitter finish. Where this beer looses some points are on aroma and mouthfeel. While I prefer oskar blues old chub to this, its very close. A great Example of the style and one Ill be brewing soon.

pours amber red with medium head. aroma is sweet with caramel and toffee malts with just a kiss of hops. drinks smooth and semisweet with more caramel and toffee and just enough hops pushing through to keep the sweetness in check. real decent.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle: Poured a deep mahogany color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with a nice touch of toffee. Taste is very well balanced by caramel and toffee malt with just the right amount of sweetness. Body has a creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done though I prefer my scotch ale with more peat malt.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Rich and full. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Aroma is bready and malty while the taste allows a good amount of hops to come through. I do not appreciate the amount of alcohol though.
