This is one of my favorite styles of beer, and I actually think that Founders may have struck out a bit, at least in my opinion.
Pours amber brown, hazy, with a full two fingers of bright white head. Nose is very light, a little malty, but none of the big malty sweetness you expect from the style.
Taste has a good deal of smokiness and malt, very nutty overall. More of a porter than a scotch ale in my opinion, lacking the sweetness and the caramel nature I've come to expect. Overall there is an overbalance of hops to malt for a scotch ale, but that doesnt make this a bad beer by any means at all. Light medium body, and a decent drinkability.

This scotch ale pours a deep brownish mahogany hue with a very slight off white head that leaves a thin film and substantial lacing. The aroma is deep, rich, and sweet. Lots of burnt sugar caramel and toffee notes plus a little vanilla and alcohol. It is definitely a thicker side of medium bodied beer with lots of coating sweetness. The flavor is amazing. Lots of rich malts following the profile set up by the nose. There is a little bitterness on the tail that just makes one want to dive back in for another sip of the awesome caramely malts on the front end. This is a great example of this style and always a favorite from one of my favorite breweries.
