Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Dark brown colour. Vanilla, scotch, smoke aromas. Taste is vanilla, brown sugar, scotch and some smoke, but it wasn't very full. Good start, but could have gone further. Good if you like a less intense scotch ale, I guess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent scotch ale. Pours a beautiful deep red with a thick white head. Smells like vanilla, full aroma, Taste is pretty malty, about a little bit boring. Little bit of vanilla, but tastes slightly watered down. Had on tap at Whet in Vancouver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown/ruby red pour with small off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and hint of smoke. Taste of roasted malt, slight caramel, hint of peat, slight nuttiness and faint hop on the finish. Medium carbonation, light bodied. Nothing really memorable about this one.

XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
On tap at sunset. Clear ruby. Aost no cap. Aroma of bread, nuts, roasted malt, brown sugar. Taste is the same.

Not a lot going on with this beer, an enjoyable ale but nothing special as the price would suggest. Slight chocolate and a lingering mouldy orange flavour profile was disapointing and a bit confusing.

Pours a clear brown with small whitish head quickly dissolving into a tiny ring. Aromas are smokey, roasted, earthy, caramel. Flavours consist of roasted malt, smoke, caramel, nutty with mild bitterness.

Pours a clear dark ruby red with an off white ring. Aroma of caramel, smoke, light peat & salt. Taste is caramel, smoke and a slight bitterness on the finish. Body isn’t as full as you’d expect for the color and aroma.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle at RBAG, from my commemorative RBAG glass. Pours clear brown, with a thin off-white head, and spotty lacing. Nose is smoky caramel, salt, honey. I’m getting a bit tired of these big, sweet beers. Scotch Ales, Barleywines, Old Ales, American Strongs etc. They just start to run into one another, and become much the same beer. Flavours of soft caramel, smoke, honey, sweet malt, fudge. A decent enough brew, but really not my thing anymore.

Darn good brew. Purely opaque dark brown with a thick creamy beige head. The nose is well malted and moderately roasted with light peat and Smokey scotch notes. Very drinkable and full Bodied. Overall an easy to drink and tasty peaty roasted malts.

Nice dark cloudy color, but very small and short head. Interesting malty taste, everyone should try it.
