Hmm. An oddly coffee-forward Scotch Ale. A good deal of leather, too, which I detest in beer.

I'm a big fan of Central Waters, especially for their barrel-aged program. And I have friends who rave about Slainte. But I do not like this brew.

Super well done very traditional scotch ale.
Nothing about this beer is out of line - all perfect to style (at least for me) and right on point for where a scotch ale should be. good malt sweetness and backbone with the right bite in toward the finish of the yeast - This and Lake Louie Warped Speed make me think that Wisconsin is really an outpost of Edinburgh!

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. At first glance the head has mostly fine foam with rather lively looking large bubbles that leave a solid trace for lacing as the level recedes. The aroma is mildly toffee-ish with a wisp of molasses. The texture is airly robust even for a Scottish ale. A sip can be a mouthful. The overall taste has both the sweet & bitter of burnt sugar with a solid malty background. In a word substantial. I had to look twice when I saw a mere 5.2% as the ABV. It has all the character of the bigger bolder choices out there. Pretty unique, in a good way.

On tap at Bluephies' in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a shaker pint 11/11/2014.

A- Dark cola-brown body, opaque but not quite black. Half finger white head, minimal retention time. Rings of lacing. [3.5]

S- Smooth toffee, earthy hops. Brown malt. Not too complicated, but balanced quite nicely. [3.75]

F- Toffee, caramel, earthy hops, sweet brown malt. Similar to the nose. There is a slight roast to it as well. Again, not particularly complex but everything comes together quite well. [4]

M- Medium bodied, on the thinner end of the spectrum. Fine carbonation, has a nice pop to it. Nice and reasonably sweet toffee finish that isn't cloying or off-putting. [3.75]

O- Very nice scottish ale. Straightforward flavours that are delicious, not as much complexity but certainly a nice shelf sixer if you enjoy Scottish ales. [4]

Final score: 3.90
