Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and slight smoke aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and toffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Poured from 22 oz bottled ordered through Letspour...into Corsendonk chalice.
Pours a root beer brown with amber head.
Aroma of Dr Pepper soda, sarsaparilla (root beer), malt sweetness.
Moderate carbonation and strong mouthfeel.
Flavors of a funky soda, alcohol, brown malts, burnt malts, peat, sarsaparilla, a touch of chalk, oak, pepper, field greens. Overall bold and full bodied, quite a bit of a soda flavor but also strong or burnt malts, sweet malts and some astringency. Letting the beer sit for 20 or so minutes removes much of the bitterness and burnt notes.

Pours a beautiful, dark brown with ruby highlights. Creamy tan head - a slightly aggressive pour yielded a thick head that bubbled like a pancake batter, then fell quickly. Relatively little in the way of lacing.

Smells of sweet malt, perhaps a little maple syrup with a slight hint of vanilla.

Tate's as it smells - malty followed by a hint of booze - as one would expect from a 9.2% Scotch Ale. Taste follows through all across the tounge with Hints of hops on the back end of the swallow.

Mouthfeel is good, perhaps thinner than I expected, but rather nice.

I enjoyed this Scotch Ale, not what I expected, but the surprise was not unpleasant.
