Great Scotch style ale! Really incredible aroma and a great look when gently poured into a glass. Decent lacing. Taste is earthy, smoky, and reminiscent of aged wood. Surprisingly hoppy. Feel is a little abrasive, but overall good. Well worth a try, as it's widely available in many areas of the Midwest.

pours an opaque black smells of bourbon molasses and a bit of smoke. substancial roasted malt tastewith a burnt and dry finish. the driness remains for quite some time, mouth feel is very carbonated i haven't had many beers of this style but it is the second best behind backwoods bastard that i have had and the finish is its strongest point

Very nice, smooth scotch ale. Nice dark brown color with small amount of tan head that fades. Minimal lingering lacing. Smells faintly of scotch and raisin. Tastes of raisin, plum, scotch, caramel and malt. Mild alcohol taste throughout, quite well hidden. Smooth, mild mouthfeel with no bitter aftertaste. Maybe a tad sweet but still great when paired with dinner.
