A- orange and red tints on a bronze brew, with a thin 1 finger white head up top for a decent hold, lace is quick to fade

S- rich caramel, dried dark fruits, smells like a scotch ale, strong aromas

T- malty sweet, toasted caramel malts, slightly roasted malt flavors, molasses, dates, figs , raisins, and some unfermented sugars

M- smooth medium body with excellent carbonation and a semi dry finish that features some alcoholic heat

D- strong aromas, tasty brew, and great mouth feel, give this brew a whirl if you are into scotch ales

On tap at the brewpub, Seattle.

A: A clear orange/amber with a one finger off-white head that lingered. Decent lacing.

S: Robust malts, grains, peat and caramel.

T: A nice maltiness followed by signs of peat and smokiness. Caramel malts top the bill.

M: Medium with medium creamy carbonation.

O: A decent Scotch ale, very drinkable. One of the Pike's better entries.

A 12 oz. bottle poured to a pint glass.

A: Murky tan copper with abundant bubbles but almost no head after the pour. Within minutes, there is no head, none whatsoever.

S: Sweet herbal malts. A slight tangy smokiness. Brown sugar sweetness. Hints of alcohol (6.7% abv.).

T: Tastes like spiced oatmeal. Grains and sweet malt predominate. Very likable, malty flavors

M: Medium to light body but with a prickly carbonation and some spiciness. A little too light/weak IMO for a scotch ale.

D: Good enough to drink again. Yes. Worth seeking out. Maybe. Not the pick of the litter but not a bad beer at all...worth a try.

(From notes.) Poured a cloudy orange-amber with a finger of loose white head. Sweet aroma with lots of malty caramel and just a hint of dark fruit.

Moderate carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Lots of toasty biscuit and caramel with a trace of smoke and spicy hops on the finish.

Not my favorite style, but this brew was drinkable enough.

Golden brown color, crisp with a hint of ruby. Nutty, caramel smells, sweet. Taste of burnt caramel malt, fruits, and some bitterness. Appearance and smell were better than the taste, IMHO. Certainly not bad at all, but definitely not a top runner either. A great beer for the sidelines of a world sampling tour.
