I much prefer the Shed's IPA and Profanity Ale. But Try 1.
In this style try Oskar's scotch ale.
*** I came back and liked this 2nd time around. A bit strong as well as sweet.

A =A deep, slightly hazed, maple syrup body with a short-lived head with moderate lacing.

S = Caramel malty, English, with alcohol / whiskey uplift. Not enough.

T = Mostly malty dominant sweetness and a laid back hop finish. Too sweet and alcoholic for me without redeeming flavor, bitterness or body. Some herbal, mineral, peppery, berries, earthy, alcoholic warmth, and nutty yeast.

M = Smooth and chewy, astringent on palate due to 7.4% alcohol.

O = A sipper. Not my style, and too coke like.

Pours brown with a slightly reddish tint, with minimal, but lacy white head. Aromas are malty sweet caramel and mild nuttiness. Flavor is similar - sweet and bready qualities. Finish is clean and fairly dry. Pretty decent stuff.
