"I love me some scotch ale when the weather starts to turn, and while this is a nice enough brew, a wee heavy it is not. 5.4%, and you can tell. Slight earthy hops, dark fruit, caramel, and maaaaybe a hint of peat. Pretty good, but I was hoping for a standout." northropfrye (3691) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
On tap at Indianapolis airport . Sweet malty with a touch of bubblegum . Copper body off white head. Not bad ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2016
6 oz. from a pint can; from Keg Liquors (Clarksville). Aroma: Moderate almonds; moderate toast; a touch of tootsie roll. Appearance: Copper brown with soft carbonation holding up a scant tan head. Flavor: Combined malt notes with more chocolate for the duration; a light leaf tobacco hop presence comes out near the finish, which is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Nice beer, and close enough to session strength to enjoy a few. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 13, 2016

16 ounce can, pours a cola color with a creamy off white head. Has the aroma of caramel, burnt toast, malt, and nuts. Flavor matches the aroma, that has medium carbonation, and a malty finish. arkurzynski (2463) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Can courtesy of motortoddhead. Deep brown red with fluffy off-white head. Toasted malt, light caramel, and a touch of plastic. Toasted malt, biscuit, grain, mild fruit punch, with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Pretty light on the palate. johnnnniee (4411) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a crystal clear solid copper brown color with a good sized creamy white head that slowly dissipates, but leaves some spotty lace in its wake. Now this beer is still quite cold, freshly poured after coming out of the "regular" refrigerator, but most of what I’m getting from the aroma is an almost tart fruitiness. As this warms it opens up a little and I get more malt with sweet caramel and toffee, bread, and hints of dark fruit. Taste is mild toffee and caramel up front followed by some tart and dark fruits for the dry finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sugary mouthfeel. This one is a bit weird. There’s a tart almost metallic thing going on the aroma. The body is a bit to thin for the style and the flavor should have more rich caramel/burnt sugar maltiness in it, but it doesn’t. This one kind of falls short of expectations.

Dark brown, caramel in color. Medium head. Caramel aromas. Thick, creamy palate. Toffee & hazelnut flavors. Sweet, not much bitterness. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pint can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a mostly clear, deeper copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy, slightly nutty toast and toffees with a touch of chocolate and earth. Flavor is similar. Nutty, grainy toffees up front with a touch of dark fruit and cocoa in the middle. Finishes clean with a touch of toast and a light earthy bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an easy drinking and clean beer. Not a whole lot of character, but enjoyable enough.
