Pours a dark brown with amber highlights. Thick, creamy light tan head. Wonderful malty aroma on the nose. It has an interesting sweetness to it. There's cocoa, caramel, dark fruit and a hint of alcohol. The mouthfeel seems a little watery for a Scotch Ale, yet it's still smooth. Warped Speed is a huge malty Scottish Ale. Flavors of smoked malt and chocolate dominate. There's an intriguing cocoa sweetness to it that arrives midway and lingers into the long finish. Nicely done.

On tap at Brickhouse.
A. Pours a pretty mahogany with a nice off-white head.
S. Fruity nose. Grapey, yeasty, toasted grain.
T. Taste brings fig, caramel, light roasted grain, cooked sugar, hint of hop bitterness, chocolate.
M. Thick-bodied with light carbonation.
O. Almost too sweet, yet not quite. I like this.

A- Deep red, getting to that brown stage. Head is tanned and about a finger and a half. Light lacing.
S- The smell is sweet, to be expected. It is caramelly, and sweet bready, with some complexities that hint at but never really develop into smokiness.
T- Same here. The sweetness is on par for the style with some lightly roasted notes as well, but it is pretty much sweet front to back. The caramel is there, but chocolate/smoke/other just wasn't present for me.
M- Medium-full body. Smooth, somewhat low carbonation.
O- A decent wee heavy, but I didn't find it as complex as some reviewers. A decent drinking beer, but I didn't find it to be outstanding.
