3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peat is strong in the sweet aroma. Clear ruby brown body is topped by a decent-sized tan-brown head that recedes slowly to a lasting cover with some lacing. Smoke is not as apparent in the flavour as the aroma suggests. Plenty of caramel and toffee notes leave it quite sweet with rather low bitterness. Medium body is smooth in texture with fair to moderate carbonation. Large tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Toby’s in January 2012.
If it’s not Scottish it’s crap!!! Fun fact: there are about as many Scottish Canadians as the entire population of Scotland itself. Anyhow this beer is a sticky dark brown substance, what everyone must wonder about is the smoky flavour, and yes you can taste the peat in the very depths of the palate but it’s not overbearing and takes second place to molasses. lupulist (354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a dark aber colour with a persistent, creamy off-white head. Aromas of smoky bacon peat and caramel malts. Taste is a smoky umami, with a realy campfire feel. Lighter body than I was expecting for a scotch ale. Medium-light carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. Perfect beer to make pancakes with! gunnfryd (15269) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2012

Recent bottle from friend of friend. A nice drinking smoked beer, nothing unusual just moderate and conservative, not much sweetness. A nice bitterness to it. Surprisingly high abv, but no booze detected. Full mouthfeel. Gerbeer (4013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a deep red/brown with light head. Earthy smoky aroma. Light peat smoke and full malt flavors. Someone mentioned a smoked ham taste - right on. Makes me hungry. OK beer with food.

2012-04-25, bottle from Toby’s, Vancouver, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Dark mahogany color; medium sized head. Nice smoke aroma, vague ham. Strangely it tastes of soy sauce and Japanese brown seasonings; dark malt and chocolate, with moderate sweetness, and good body strength, and a peaty trace along with the common smoke, also traces of smoked ham; sweet caramel, more in the final; correct bitterness. A bit rough but good.
2012-01-09, bottle from Viti, Vancouver, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Dark brown color, almost black, with medium sized head. Aroma of smoke, with raisin, some oxidization, and a bit of paper and dust. Full bodied, with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel; malt and dark caramel flavor, with a peat backbone, wood, and a sourish note from the smoked malt; correct bitterness.
Bold, loud, unelegant, but pleasant.

[ Courtesy of fiulijn ]. Clear medium to dark brown colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting to diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, smoke - meat. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light moderate bitter with a average to long duration, smoke - mead. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Thanks to Derek for this. Interesting beer. It says Big Smoke but it’s not that strong of a rauch. Here it’s listed as a Scotch and it doesn’t fit well there either IMO. But the beer is tasty. Pours a dark ruby red with a big frothy, velvety light beige head. Aroma is mild smoke and deli meat but mostly peat and malt. Taste is somewhat sweet and peaty. Light smoke flavouring that clouds the palate but loads of malt and there is a small hop bitterness in the finish.
