Cannot find ANYTHING about this beer on the interwebs, so everything is based solely on the label and my feeble palate.

Picked up the 22 at the COOP tonight for ~$9... pricey, but hopefully worth it. Pours with a nice dark tan head that leaves spots of sticky lacing atop a dark dark walnut brew that only hints of ruby at the stem end of my glass.

Nose is much more "roasty" than "malty"... Not exactly a good thing for a Big Ole Scotch ale, but it isn't off putting, just slightly out of style. minor ale fruitiness seems about right.. light roasty maltiness is a big player... I would expect more of a kettle caramel note and more big toasty elements.

The palate is a little bit better.. but there is something that now translates into coffee (in my mind's palate).. better malt profile, but still is lacking the malt complexities expected in such a big Scotch ale.. Not enough "caramel", if that makes sense... I think it would tie things together... The finish is long and roasty.. With warmth, I was hoping for more blooming Scottish ale yeast fruitiness but it never showed up. Blind, I would call this a "light porter"... but I see the bones of a much better beer.

Body is medium/full with a good small bubble carbonation that helps create a creamy mouthfeel.

This on the verge of being pretty damn good... dial in the malt complexities a bit more and it is a big winner.

Bomber thanks to Toby. Pours a deep brown color with a medium beige head. A sweet dry earthy nose with some berries and chocolates. A very nice flavor: rich smoke, chocolate, bitter dark chocolates, toasted malts, earthy. Nice. I drank a big ole glass of this.
