COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a Scotch ale like no other. The brewers use the finest smoked malt for flavor complexity and then combine it with roasted barley, and caramel malts for a rich distinctive and smoky flavor. These ingredients give it a deep, dark color with a smooth, rich finish that is surprisingly drinkable.

Certainly better than their other two beers I had but a not so sure about this whole finest smoked malt idea. Pours mahogany with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish with some smoke. Bottle i didn't finish.

12 oz bottle in Idaho. Excellent appearance with a clear but very dark brown body and a large, durable tan head. Somewhat unappealing, peaty aroma. Similar but better flavor. Good bitter-sweet balance. Very good feel: near creamy smooth and full body.

Personally I am not a for the hoppy beers. I like the sweeter smoother beers and this falls in my personal catagory of good tasting beer.

Bottle. Nutty toffee malt and fresh hay aroma. Dark brown with large tan head. Moderately sweet nutty toffee malt and moderately bitter astringent hay flavor. Body a bit light. Pretty good.

GTAEgeek (2343) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown, with no head, just a small, tan ring. Earthy and savory aroma, with notes of chicory, cloves, toffee, cedar, and black pepper. Sweet and very malty, with a light bitterness and good, spicy finish. Medium body, grainy, hard, and a little thin. This is a fairly solid scotch ale, and wonderfully aromatic, but lacking in the appearance and palate.

Patrickctenchi (6692) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle: Dark brown/copper with a small beige head. Toffee, lightly smoky malt aroma. Baked bread, toffee malt, chocolate malt taste. More along the lines of a porter or brown ale, really, but quite nice..... Good flavour....lighter bodied than expected.

I thought this was decent. Not nearly as sweet as many Scotch ales but has the similar caramelly malt flavor. Worked as a hair of the dog beer.

From 12 oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a nice dark brown color, cola like with a thick tan head the dissipates quickly. Nose is weak, some malt, chocolate, caramel, ready. Taste is light-medium bodied, mostly sweet. Finishes crisp on the palate. Not a bad beer, very drinkable.
