First off, how the *hell* am I the first to review this beer since 2005?!?!? Sorry, Ken, you deserve better...

A nice surprise; though I've had this brew a number of times on-draught, I found it today at Kelly's Olympian (downtown Portland) for a mid-day pint. Nicely priced at $4.

A: The mildest haze in an auburn pour. Lazy carbonation streams, some rising with purpose, some with a languid meander. Scarce head, a filmy patch with outstreched tendrils. Sultry, alluring.

S: Sweet and fruity, a vague peaty smokiness. Wish it had a little more balance and complexity, but it's certainly not bad to sniff...

T: Tons of toffee; a sweeter slant, but with enough spice and vaguely-balancing hops to please anyone. Lasting notes of crushed pear, ripe apple, even a little sweet citrus...then plenty of grain. Liquified breakfast cereal, if you ask me, with a dash of booze...

M: A mellow/smooth feel that feels just slightly undercarbonated. Warming of alcohol comes in ripples, rather than waves. Medium body.

D: Maybe not the most complex, mold-breaking Scotch, but certainly an enjoyable one. Watch it, or it'll catch up with you, highly recommended for a lover of malty ales. Well done, Fearless; you know I'll be back for more.

Had only time for one pint at Fearless and happily they had a Scotch ale.
Dark brown,, almost mahogany ale, small tan head , that goes very fast , leaving good laceing. Very little carbonatioon present.
Very malty aroma, slightly roasty in character.Nice on a cold day.
The taste again is on style full of lovelly maltiness, and warming alcohol, the alcohol is detectable but it actually lends something to the beer , rather than detracts. Its not quite as sweet as some Scotch ales, but still in style. Very nice stuff.
Good mouthful, like a good Scotch the mouthfeel is not thick,but nice and smooth.
Very good drinkability for one s strong. Wish i had the cash for a Growler.
