On tap at city brew pub. Overall, I like this brew. Aroma could use some help, just a faint sweet and malty aroma. Not too carbonated, which I like. Sweet and roasted malt favors from the coppery brown pour, minimal head. Always comes in a pint glass. There is a little bitter note that reminds me of tea. Lot of flavor overall, minimal hops that I think is correct for a Scotch ale. A little thick on the tongue, by not much after taste.

Had on tap at the Hilldale location. Served into a pint glass.

Appearance: clear, chestnut brown in color, 1/4 inch head, low carbonation

Smell: toasted malt and leather

Taste: toasted malt, caramel, peat, and leather

Mouthfeel: sweet, medium-heavy body, medium carbonation

Overall: It is great when a brewery does a non-standard style and does it well. Love the caramel and leather combination. Would have several of these if I was in Wisconsin. This was the best from the brewery that I tried.

Another seasonal put on, enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. Amber body with a bit of head. Malty aroma. average mouthfeel. Somewhat Complex malt story,on the sweeter side, with caramel, chocolate malts, a bit of smoked malts. Not a bad one. No booziness.

A. Mahogany brown with red tinge to the edges. Not much of a head, but that's OK.
S. Here is where I start to sense trouble. I really have to struggle to get any kind of smell at all out of this beer. Eventually, after almost snorting the beer up my nose by accident, I detect a weak caramel-toffee malt with maple notes. I should not have to try so hard to be able to smell my beer, and no, I do not have a head cold. This is supposed to be a Scotch Ale?
T. Follows the nose. Weak watery malt notes and a smidge of maple. I am starting to worry that either A. I have jaded my palate with an excess of higher gravity brews or B. This beer is not very good.
M. Well, at least it is thirst-quenching and doesn't sit heavy at all. But isn't the style called 'wee heavy' for a reason?

I'm probably not going to get this one again.
