Bottle thanks to mfielden on BA! Clear very dark amber/brown pour, little carbonation and a nice mellow caramel aroma. Flavor is very rich bready caramel, a little booze and pepper on the finish. Very smooth and hides the alcohol very well! Im not even a big fan of this style, but Id buy this if I could get it locally.

dark brown and viscous with no discernable head. nose of medium crystal malt with touches of smoke and a lot of english/scottish ale esters. little bitterness before medium crystal malt and some roasted component. the alcohol becomes more evident as the beer warms providing depth, but some astringency as well. not a lot of depth or lingering flavor in this one, especially for the abv, it ends up tasting a lot like a smaller beer, but that is impressive in regard of fermentation characteristics. overall an above average version of an underproduced style

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2011
On tap at Papago. Pours deep brown with a thin off-white head. The nose is roasted caramel malt, fruit, sweet brown bread. The taste is sweet malts, caramel, toffee and more fruits. Medium mouthfeel. Too sweet for my tastes.

mixmasterob (1054) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle from CBX. Dark brown, burnt amber pour with a small white head. Faded quick. Aroma was rich caramel malts, some peat malt, and light smoke. Very nice. Flavors were also rich, good bit of caramel and light peat. Seems very authentic to me. Mouthfeel was full, carbonation medium to soft. Great scotch.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a lovely red and brown color. Very malty with a secondary hit of alcohol. Strong but light as well. A very woodsy, strong grain taste really lingers.

Served from a 12 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a deep copper hue with a small light tan head. The aromas are a bit fruity. Some apple cider thing in there without much of a malt nose. The flavors are some caramelized malts, light amount of smoke, alcohol. As it warms the flavors are a bit more creamy caramel and a much better drink. The mouth is a touch hot, pretty full bodied. At first I wasnt digging this brew but after it warmed a bit it was much better.

StefanSD (2407) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2011
12 oz bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent red-brown color with a small off white head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma is weak with indistinct malts and some toffee. The flavor is malts forward with hazelnuts, pretzels and a small dose of hot alcohol. The palate is silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Not bad, but not real inspired either--tastes like a compromise.

On tap; pour a dark auburn color. Aroma of caramel, fruit, roasted malt and earth. Moderately sweet, earthy, roasted, peat and caramel-fruit. Solid

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2011
A beautiful beer, clear very dark redish amber. Thick, sweet maltiness to start, smooth throughout with a nice touch of alcohol at the end. A damn good beer.

hamilton23 (619) - Alpine, California, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Pours dark copper/brown. Aroma is smoked peat and some toffee. Taste is toffee, caramel and smoked peat. This is missing some sweetness that I usually enjoy in a scotch ale. Not a bad effort.
