Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Richmond 19th. Medium amber, slight head. Caramel aroma. Flavor is surprisingly rich caramel. Little else. Balancing bitterness. Not particularly “Scottish”, but not bad.

RG 19. Bottle. Caramel with thin head. Smells cereally and caramelly. Very sweet. Fairly syrupy.

Drake (13662) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle from the brewery and shared at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Toffee aroma with a good bit of smoke. The taste is toffee, caramel, smoke, bitter hops. Medium bodied, boozy. Very nice.

Bottle share by BVery, has big time malt and caramel scents. Taste is similar to a Barleywine, sweet caramel and a bit of alcohol bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

December 15, 2012 bottle via trade. Cloudy orangish pour with some head. Aroma was caramel, malty, butterscotch and alcohol. Taste was super sweet like a butterscotch soaked in alcohol. This was like a hybrid scotch ale and barley wine, good but needed to tone down the sweetness a tad.

BVery (10328) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle - thanks Folty! Murky orange pour with a frothy head. Aroma is butterscotch, vanilla, caramel - very sweet. Full palate. Very tasty brew.

tgncc (3130) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2012
The aroma is fruity, bready, sweet, like a barley wine. The appearance is a cloudy red/brown, off white head. The flavor is like the aroma, sweet. The finish is sweet, light piney hops. Alcohol well hidden. Medium in body. slightly thick. Enjoyable, but much more of a barley wine than a scotch ale.

2011 vintage, 500ml bottle into a NEBCO flute glass served at cellar temperature. A - Pours a clear dark red color with a bit of sediment. Initial pour yields a two finger off white head which doesn’t stick around for too long. Settles into a thin cap and edging. Moderate amount of lacing and retention. S - Toffee, caramelized malts and dark fruits, and vanilla rich butterscotch. A bit of an alcohol tingle on the end. T - Loads of rich caramel and toffee. Light notes of vanilla and butterscotch, Not super complex or full of flavors, but its very rich and tasty. A touch of alcohol warmth but its very faint and only helps with the flavor profile. Finish is of sweet butterscotch candy. M - Creamy and medium bodied with silky carbonation. Slightly dry finish with only a lingering buttery rich candy flavor. Very smooth with no alcohol heat. O - This beer is excellent, and with nearly a year on it its drinking so well. Can’t wait to try a fresh bottle in a few weeks. One of the more enjoyable scotch ales I’ve had.

changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
I sort of unintentionally aged this bottle about a year. Brownish-amber with a thin head. There’s a lot of candied mixed fruit in the aroma; figs, raisin, cranberry, and dates. Caramel and boozey notes round out the scent. This is smooth and warming going down with a gentle whiskey-like alcohol burn. The flavors consist of cherry twizzlers, toffee, wood, and the dried mixed fruit noted in the aroma. This is a good sipper.
