Pours black with a slowly fading head.
Nose shows chocolate, bready malt, peat, soft smoke, coffee, roasted malt, oatmeal and nutty nots.
Similar flavours but quite sweet. Peat, brady malt, chocolate, malted grains, nutty notes. A bit too sweet.
Carbonation could be higher.

Devil Canyon's Full Boar Scotch Ale. 7.4% ABV

A: Maybe half a finger's head. Fades immediately to nothing. And, I mean nothing. Some very slight sheeting. Very deep red, with a brownish hue. Yellow in the dimple, with flecks in it (hard to pin down a color, it seems to reflect the yellow).

S: Coffee is the first thing I get. Medium roast. That's it, so far. I'll let it warm up, just in case. A bit of bittersweet chocolate. Slight molasses.

T/MF: Very dark flavor. I was expecting something more akin to a malty red, but this is closer to a porter. Char, like on toast from a bad toaster. Though, not as unpleasant in beer form. Maybe, a little ash. Some kind of floral/potpourri note. Burnt toffee.

If this is all typical of Scotch ales, count me out, but I suspect it's not.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

Bought at the Blue Dog bottle shop on a whim. There's no date some don't know what I'm getting into here.
As it turns out this brew isn't that half bad.
Pretty close to style but the taste is a bit washed out.
The aroma was malty with some chocolate notes earth and cream.
The appearance was a dark drown with a smaller head.
Taste is very malty hints of chocolates. I don't if its me or not but I think I taste some smokey peat. Or it could be suggestive.
Something in there is numbing my tongue.
A desent beer close to style.
