Back in 2010 I reviewed this beer and did not like it. I have since grown accustomed to scotch ales and have had the chance to branch out and try more.

This has become a favorite of mine, not just for the scotch ale category but overall. At the store I work at, it has my face in front of it. I think I may be the only one buying it...

So what! I really dig this stuff! If you want a quote to give out, here's one for you:

"It's like malt liquor for gentlemen!"

It looks like a cake of Pops Bass Bow Rosin. It smells like someone started an oak fire with some fine scotch whisky. It tastes best well chilled but works fine under room temperatures. It feels like you're drinking suds filled syrup.

I've had better scotch ales, but this one comes in six packs of cans for ten bucks a pop. That's a fantastic deal when it weighs in at 8% and is easy to chug.

That said, I've grown the scope of my palate and learned to embrace the Scotch Ale. I recommend you try this beer.
