1.48/5  rDev -47.5%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 1.5

Pours cola brown with caramel hues, some fine creamy foam atop. Smells like dough, some baked pizza smells, some nougat but really no appealing. Flavor is boozy and phenolic - really hard for me to get bast the alcohol, banana, and nailpolish. Medium bodied with light carb and an off dry finish.

Serving type: on-tap

My third & final beer at Brouwers for the evening after an excellent lamb burger, good fries, & tasty sauce to dip them both in. I'll be consuming the balance of that burger tomorrow at the airport. See my & envy me, puny fliers!

Very dark for a scotch ale, on the heavily serious side of blanket brown, with a haze of red. Smell is pretty light, sweet malting.

Laht Neppur Scottish Ale doesn't really belong in its weight class. The taste reaches for mediocre & falls a bit short. The malts are dull...and there's not much else.

That word fits it perfectly. A dull brew. Unfortunately, this isn't something I'd order again. In a state/city swimming with microbrews, this one needs to up its game several notches to compete with more worthy offerings. I hope it succeeds!

32oz mason jar filled at the brewery and shared with the Boise geeks..

Pours dark copper/lite brown.. pretty highlites.. short lasting tan head.

Aromas are pretty much spot on albeit a tad light.. malty for sure with some lite caramel... just doesn't seem deep enough to be a homerun.

Flavors are the same.. plenty of malts.. hints of some nuttiness. deeeep toast... still could use a bit more up front heavy malts.. and a touch more sweetness.

Body is on the light side of the style..

There aren't really any "flaws", except it seems a little shallow and could use some dialing in toward the malt side of things.

I dig it ... just a tad light for my liking.

This Scotch-style ale is incorrectly labeled a Scottish though it is a full 8% ABV. It is one of only a few strong ales Laht Neppur brews and the only one I've seen bottled. It is cola colored with infinitesimally small bubbles and an absent head.

I had a moment of concern about the aroma, which was swampy and suggestive of a troublesome infection. But there's no trouble to the sweet, plummy taste with its near absent bittering so I'm wondering if a slight measure of peat malts contributes that swampy herbalness. Bottom line is that I'd be quite pleased to drink another.
