Unlike the lighter "Scottish" ales, this is an authentic heavy Scotch ale. It is lightly hopped with a strong malt character, and a hint of peaty smokiness. Warm fermentation produces fruity esters and balances the sweet malt character.

Rating #1908 - 2015.09.24 #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 7 - Flight at taproom Light brown amber pour with a bubbly tan foam with little retention. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, vanilla, oak, honey, mild peat smoke. Taste is quite sweet at first, prolonged oaky vanilla, light tobacco, toffee sweetness and the presence of oak in the body. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Very nice medium-full body, mild alcohol note on the palate which is typical for the style, and lots of rich sweetness.

Tons of malt which one would expect. Not as much peat or smokiness as others have stated which is a positive for me. Very clean and crisp mouthfeel which is rare for a Scotch Ale. Don’t love the category but tried it as the brewery is right down the street, and glad I did. Arguably best Scotch Ale I’ve had.

Clear dark amber color with a tan head. Wonderfully complex aroma with cinnamon clove, cardamom, and a touch of orange zest. Flavor is mild, with some residual sweetness. Very good indeed, yes, quite.

Tap at Pike. Clear orange-amber pour with a tight white head. Toffee, mild vanilla, sweet dates. Not bad.

Smells sweetly malty with hints of caramel. Pours a caramel brown with a quickly dissipating head without any lacing. Taste is initially sweet with a mildly bitter short finish. Medium body with soft carbonation.

Bomber. Pours a copper red with a beige head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malty, with caramel, bread, and biscuit notes into the malty finish.
