3.28/5 rDev -7.9%
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.
