Coffee scotch ale like a.... Coffee plantation in Edinburgh??? Dark brown pour with good head. Bitter finish. Tap at brewery.

mcberko (19201) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2017
On tap at Ratio, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of French press coffee, light toasted caramel. Flavour is all coffee, with little scotch ale left. Nice coffee bomb, but it’s not particularly complex. Decent.

Draft at Ratio Beerworks. Poured a dark brown color with a smal light tan head. Aroma was a blast of coffee, light sweet malts. Flavor was a lot of cold-brew coffee, roasted malts. Some alcohol really comes out in this one. Very tasty.

Hold Steady with Novo Coffee 6.2%

A dark scotch ale blended with cold press coffee. A deep dark brown cola pour. Nice soft coffee aroma with a sweet caramel hazelnut. Nutty and a bit bitter black coffee. This medium bodied beauty drinks smooth.

hayduke (5703) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass was brown. Light tan head. Nose is coffee Medium body. Flavor has fruit and you can taste the scotch ale underneath the coffee but this is coffee dominated to the finish. However interestingly enough it is good. Darn good. Go figure.
