Growler: Clean caramel brown hue with a small but lasting fizzy head, some spotty lace. The aroma has notes of hazelnut and walnut, caramel, bready, and aromatic malts, hint of cold pressed coffee and bakers chocolate, and a dash of noble hops. The taste is malt driven but not overly sweet. Some light coffeeish and hop bitterness does come through. The biggest objection I have with this brew is the lightness of the mouth feel. Sure it is shockingly easy to drink but almost to the point of becoming watery and boring. The palate is dumbed down for the masses and that is a shame. Otherwise I dug most of what this beer had to offer. Patrickctenchi (6547) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours clear, wet copper-brown. Huge tan head.
Scent is woody, cola, nuts...sweet.
Taste is rich chocolate malt, cocoa, toffee.
This is a dessert in a can.
Extremely rich, yet drinks lightly.
Wonderful stuff. ajnepple (6417) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear amber appearance with a beige ring of foam. Mild aroma of peaty malts, earthy notes, light caramel/toffee and a touch of dark fruits. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with a touch of smoky bitterness. Average body, a little thin. OK. vyvvy (6387) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2017
It pours bronze with an off white head. It has a light body with mild carbonation. The taste has dry toffee, dried dates with light toast. Okay Scottish ale. RobertDale (6373) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2014

Draft. Darker brown pour with a beige head. Some peat and smoke come through in the aroma, but its faint. Very light Scottish ale. obguthr (6294) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2011
Can at Butters’ Slutfest, courtesy of BrewEngineer: Barley, DMS, tea nose. Clear tea colored, thin yellow head. Malt flavor, but weak. Finishes cloying, there must be adjuncts. Meh. riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Nose of chocolate, caramel, light earthy notes. Moderately sweet and malty nose. Pours brown with a thin non lasting head and no lace. The flavor is chocolatey with caramel sweetness, nutty notes, and a slight bitterness. Moderately sweet and malt forward. Easy to drink but unspectacular. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Comes reddish brown with a small tan head. Mild aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is similar. Somewhat sweet, but very drinkable. Too much like a brown ale. 1/15
