Canned on 1/22/14
Tasted on 3/31/14 from a 12oz can purchased at Midtown. Pours dark mahogany, letting just a bit of fiery light through, with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is all about the malt with some caramel, chocolate, and a touch of smoke, with a toasted malt bread aroma. The flavor is focused on the same malt, but very dry, with nice caramel, the smoke coming through a bit more, and a touch of bitterness. The body is fairly full with just under average but still stinging carbonation and a long lightly bitter, somewhat smoked, caramel finish.

This on tap would be a beer aroma dream. It's super scotchy and strong alcohol flavor. Absolutely delicious

Fair bit going on here. It's a bit of a roller coaster, and while the finish doesn't change my life, it's about the journey, and what a journey.

Can from J’s. Pours a deep brown with a small finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Earthy toffee and twigs, roasted cacao. Dry on the palate with some toasted caramel. Abv hidden. Dangerously drinkable. GoddamnNoise (158) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2017
355 ml. can @ Home.
Aroma: quite intense aromas of plums, raisins, prunes, dark dried fruits. Hints of alcohol, roasted and toasted malts, burnt caramel.
Appearance: deep brown-reddish color with super creamy light brown head with medium to high thickness. Foam made of tiny-to-small bubbles. Quite dark but it seems pretty clear. High retention. Low to medium Brussels’ lacing.
Taste: medium to high sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of dark dried fruits, raisins, prunes, plums. Hints of figs. Very subtle chocolate, nuts and maybe coffee overtones. The warming effect from the quite high level content is noticeable. Balance is much toward the sweet side.
Palate: light to medium body, oily-silky texture, very low carbonation, quite sweet and lingering finish of dark dried fruits, raisins, prunes, plums. The flavor is moving to some bitterness as it lingers. Hints of toasted and roasted malts, burnt caramel.
Overall: quite good appearance, aromas and flavors. This beer is all about dark dried fruits, plums, prunes and raisins. Very pleasant flavors and aromas. Quite good. It would better with a bit less of alcohol and less sweetness (too much sweetness for me, but it’s ok for the style).

can, pours clear brown with fast falling head. Aroma is very delicate with accents of caramel and chocolate. In taste medium chocolaty sweetness with a roasty bitter finish. I’m missing some wow effect. Definitely not my style. Beersandbuds (3) - Alabama, USA - JUN 8, 2017 does not count
Similar to Guinness with a bit more kick ans smoke. Dark, dark beer, with a smooth texture. Love the look. One of my faves. AlfredoGarcia (287) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 31, 2017
355 ml can. Oaked wine smell. Dark fruits. Dark color, dense foam. Complex taste, pretty good, but way too sweet. Kind of cyrup. Scotch ales are really criticaly acclaimed, but are not my thing at all. gepajerry (9) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2017 does not count
Very good semi light scotch ale. Only slightly sweet, which I like, with a slightly bitter touch. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Dark brown color, off white head with good retention. Aroma has notes of burnt caramel and toasted malts. Flavor is slightly bittery, notes of dry fruits and also dominated by caramelish notes. Toasty final with some burnt notes.
