16 Oz can poured into a snifter

A- A deep colored murky red. Very little of an off white head. A big looking beer.

S- A sweet caramel malt dominates the nose. There is a slight roasted character as well. A load of dark fruit. A slight grain and yeast as well. A really strong nose on this one.

T- A big sugary sweetness up front. A massive silky smooth caramel body to this beer. A bunch of toffee and nougat. A huge dark fruit presence, there is ton of fig and plum in this beer. A big grain flavor and a nice fruityness from the yeast.

M- A massive feel to this beer. Really syrupy and silky smooth. A slight warming. Dangerously drinkable.

O- This is a damn good Scotch ale. Its big, syrupy and flavorfull. A perfect candidate for barrel aging, do it Sun King. My only gripe is the price, 17$ a 4 pack is a bit steep but it is a great brew.

Can of scotch ale? Sure! 16oz can from CWBlues, into a tulip.

Dark brown with some khaki head. Moderate retention and only a bit of lace. Dark fruits and some distinct dark spicy bread character. A bit of dark fruit gummies as well. Palate has toasted malts, dark fruits, some toffee character and even a touch of roast that comes out mid-late palate. A bit of alcohol that's easily forgiveable. Lower carbonation, and medium-full feel. Excellent.

A: Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head that quickly goes away.

S: Some sweet, bready malt with a bit of roastiness.

T: Follows the smell. Lots of sweet malt thats slighty roasty. There is also some raisin, plum, and caramel with a bit of alcohol warming. The finish is just slightly bitter.

M: Medium carbonation with medium body.

O: I enjoyed this, but I think it could use a bit creamier, smoother mouthfeel.

Big thanks to Kegatron for gifting me with a can of this. 16oz into a snifter, the brew appears a dark mahogany with a finger of khaki head that is composed of big bubbles and is quick to fade. Rising bubbles maintain a ring around the outside perimeter of the glass. When held to the light, it shows some brownish coloration and some chunks of yeast are stuck in suspension.

The aroma is a bit nutty mixed with bready grains and a hint of toffee to caramel-like sweetness. The more I smell this brew, the more sweet smelling it gets almost with a hint of vanilla as well. As it warms up, a mild hint of that 8% abv starts to poke through along with a mild suggestion of herbal hops. Overall, not a bad smelling brew.

The flavor is sweet with hints of toffee, caramel and mild light molasses. A bit of bready to toasty grain almost nutty at times with a minor fruit ester and hints of fruity hops to melt out the focus on nothing but residual sugar. More sips bring out a bit of herbal hop character but that is quite faint in comparison to the maltiness and residual sugar found in this brew.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew. It is slightly lower than moderate carbonation which is fitting for the style. Overall this is a pretty solid take on a wee heavy and worth a try but not something I would go out of my way for or buy multiples of. I am appreciative of the chance to try this and have no problems throwing back the 16oz.

A-Black in the glass, more of a clear brown/amber around the edges, one finger office white head that doesn't last

S-Very malty, some peat, tad bit of roasted malt, was expecting more here.

T-Lots of malt, good balance, chocolate, smoke, tad bit of wood and vanilla, plums and darker fruits even some slight bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation but a tad watery.

O-Scotch Ales are an under made style, a great malty brew.
