A big bastard of an award winning brew. Exceptionally smooth with rich maltiness and a touch of smoky peat character.

Bottle - In honor of my grandfather. Pours brown white head - nose and taste of light peat smoke, caramelized bready malt and tree sap - medium body

Draught pour @ SeaTac Seattle Taproom. Pours a dark brown clear colour with a thin head. Nose of nutty notes and caramel. Flavour is smooth, some caramel and malts, slight fruity esters, and some alcohol finish.

Pours a dark brown nearly black color with a bubbly head. Mineraly malted finish is pretty strong. Not a whole lot of peat coming through. Not bad, but not in love with this one - I'd prefer to drink Innis & Gunn any day over this despite Silver City being somewhat local. if I see it on tap I'll give it a whirl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #1913 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 12 - Bottleshare. Pours a really dark brown with a bubbly tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is earthy, molasses, toffee, mild peat. Taste is quite sweet at first, malt and toffee, full bodied. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Great peat notes make this phenomenal.

SeaTac, Wa - on tap at the Seattle Taproom in the Seattle Airport. Murky, dark amber pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma has some peat, toffee, some nuttiness . Delectable flavor with some nice toffee accents, a hint of chocolate, some earthy peat notes in the back end. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Final and Rating #51 of my 2016 vacation. It was a helluva trip!

Everything I like in a scotch ale - not perfected, but there. Malty, big in body, fruity and slightly smoky. Smooth going down.

Not as flavorful as some other Scotch Ales that I have had but this one is really smooth with rich maltiness & a touch of smoky peat character. Silver City is becoming one of my favorite Washington breweries!

Woah. Love this. It's hard. Tastes like a scrap of leather. In a good way. Smells like alcohol. Very scotchy, I can almost taste scotch whiskey..peaty.

Draught at CBM. Starts off nicely with a silky body, pleasant scotch and smokey notes, then peat and tobacco kind of take over and finish is on the boozy side. Not the smoothest scotch ale, kind of struggled towards the end of the glass.

solidfunk (9009) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Tons of caramel and sweet malt here. Pours dark brown with ok head. Syrupy and sweet. Doesn’t come together well, a bit of a sweet mess. Tap at Seattle Taproom.
