12oz bottle. Rusty brown color. Thin white ring. Heavy booze smell. Sweet aromas, vanilla, scotch, peat smoke. Tastes strong. Hearty malt body. Some wood, loads of toffee, light peat, very malt forward. (3598*)
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours a brownish copper with a beige head. Head was initially fizzy. Aroma is quite malty with some sweet caramel notes.. Taste is plastic, malt, light smoke, and alcohol with a strong medicinal quality. Drain pour. darbeer75 (901) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Aroma: heavy malt and sickly sweet; Appearance: dark ruby red with fizzy white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: overwhelming malty with a bizarre note of band-aids; Palate: heavy body with long, plastic finish; Overall: very disappointing. mfhennig (285) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Quite surprised that the ratings are so low. This beer stands with Robert the Bruce, Dirty Bastard and Bellhavens Wee Heavy. It’s terrific! I will guess that this is the base for Commando. Thanks to Jerry in Minnesota for making my afternoon just a Wee bit better. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Draft at Sprechers. Pours brown with no head. Nose is caramel, toffee and a strange bandaid aroma. Taste has some smoky flavor. Overall not that good. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 6, 2015
A pretty solid scotch ale. Creamy, rich, with a sweet malty backbone. Tried with Brandon in 2015.

Tasted on 1/31/12 from a bottle. Pours clear amber with an average khaki head that leaves thin lace. The nose is lightly smokey caramel malt with toasted nuts and a hint of bitterness. The flavor is lightly smokey caramel, toffee, and maple, with some bread and light bitterness. The body is medium plus with lively carbonation and a long smoked toffee finish. koleminer20 (3591) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2014
500 ml bottle. The pour is a muddy brown with a small ring of head that vanishes quickly. The aroma is very malty. There is a strong toffee presence and there isn't a whole lot going on there. Strong dark fruits all throughout. I love the aroma. The flavor mimics this. There is the sweetness and the dark fruits. The mouth feel is thicker and syrupy and with a light carbonation gives it a little velvety feel. The aftertaste is lingeringly malty and smooth. This is a very good scotch
