3.5/5 rDev -2.5%
Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.
I figured, since we've got too many cases of this stuff at work, I might as well bring one home and give it a shot. It's only fair. It pours a clear dark sunset amber topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises buttery toffee, rich caramel, a hint of oak (possibly psychosomatic), and a touch of dark greens. The taste brings in more of the same, with the greens coming through a bit more powerfully, though they still play a decided second fiddle to the malty overlord. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice enough malt bomb, nothing earth-shattering, but a pleasant little drink.

Review from 1/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark red amber, two finger light tan head and lacing, good retention. Aroma of caramel malt and wood. A nice medium bodied, creamy scotch ale. Oak elements are noticeable, with a caramel sweetness. Seems a bit tame; misses being an excellent beer by not being assertive enough. Still really liked this one.

Vintage 22oz bottle (2010?) split with my brother, poured into pint nonics.
A: Brilliant clear amber with an off-white head...lower carbonation.
S: Oak, malt, caramel, toffee, a bit fruity (yeast?). Malt bomb for sure, beside of bit of a spice character and the wood, all you get is malt.
T: Malty smooth body with plenty of caramel and oak...spicy...dark fruit, raisin bread, lots of malt, woody notes and plenty of nutty flavors.
MF: Medium body, lower carbonation, a bit spicy, smooth and creamy. Alcohol is pretty much gone at this point in its life.
O: Pretty darn good Scotch Ale, and a great value.
