The look of this beer excited me. The taste not so much. Dark and hazy mahagony body with a thick and fluffy khaki head. Great retention and sticky lacing.

Smell is dull and faint with some sweet malts and just a hint of piney hops. A bit of milk chocolate.

Taste is dominated by a strange metallic sweetness. I don't mind a sweet Scotch Ale but this was too cloying. Mild hop bitterness didn't manage to round this out well enough.

I really wanted to like this because it is local. And I am on a canned beer kick. But this just didn't hit the mark for me. Wasn't awful or a drain poor, but getting there.

Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head that retains as a film.

Bready caramel malt aroma, some brown sugar.

Caramel and bready malts, some coppery malt too, with a light woody hop finish.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Very nice scotch ale with some good flavor and aroma. I've had better in this style, but I've had far more worse. It's definitely worth a try and very enjoyable.

Generally uninspiring. Massive head for no reason, but may have had a slightly off can, so want to give this another try.

Poured from a can. Very lively pour, much too aggressive coming out of the can. Had a sour and metallic quality to both aroma and taste that is incredibly off-putting. Poor quality control.
