COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One hitter series. This Scotch Ale is sweet, but not cloying. It’s strong, but not brash. It’s smooth and smokey, like a good dram among friends. Cheers!

Pours dark brown with a finger of off white head. Aroma is rich and sweet with hints of chocolate covered fruit and a slight smokiness. Flavor is rich but not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange-brown pour, foamy off-white head. Not much aroma. Caramel fruity flavor with smoky and burnt notes.

Straight forward brown pour. Pretty dry for a brown ale, with a modestly astringent finish. A little brown sugar and pumpernickel at the start. The high ABV is very well masked. Medium light malty aroma. I was hoping for more somehow.

blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a very deep amber with a large long-lasting frothy off-white head. If you look closely you can see lots of floaties. Aroma (7+) of caramel malt, a bit of brown sugar, a hint of smoke, dark fruit and light hops. Flavour of lightly toasted caramel malt, some light smoke, light hops and dark fruit. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer.

BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2017
On tap at rbwg. Pours out dark brown topped with a sand head. Nose is toffee some caramel sweet malts along with a nutty wood note. Taste is as the nose with the sweet malts getting it done.

HourGlass13 (909) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Appearance is a clear amber brown, with a light tan head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus, pine, caramel, dark fruit. Taste is pine, bitter malt, booze, caramel, sweet but bitter, citrus, dark fruit, different. Mouthfeel is medium, light carbonation, booze and hoppy caramel aftertaste. Overall, this is a little too hoppy.

freekyp (2257) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Sweet earthy. Some smoky and leathery notes. Pretty sweet. Pours a pretty deep reddish brown. No head to speak of. A bit of undercooked malt flavor. Ok.

Bottle. Dark brown with nice foamy head. But hops a little too predominant for a Scotch ale. Not a good balance to my mind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2017
This is a pretty nice Scotch ale. Potent, robust, dark flavors. It’s smooth, not too much smoke.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark nut brown color with a medium sized creamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with pine and orange. The flavor was dark fruit, pine, toasty malts and a bit of wood. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.
