This has a darker and dryer taste than most Scotch Ales in my experience. It lacks that common sticky maltiness. Some sweetness at the start, but overall it's tangy and grainy with a smoky touch. This even tastes like there is a wee dram of Highland malt splashed in. Light body, fragrant with woody notes and a faint whiff of bacon.

Bitterish and spicy, it's an interesting flavor. I would give it tops for drinkability in this style, but the dry smoke does get a little overbearing. It really does taste like diluted Scotch whisky. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
