tap

Pours black with a tan lacing, a little bit of brown glow around the edges.

Toasted biscuit malt aromas with some toffee and caramel.

Same toastiness in the flavor with biscuity malts, caramel, cocoa, coffee, and a woody mild hoppiness.

Full body with a stinging carbonation on the tongue.

Very nice Scotch ale, darker than I was expecting but has a very nice flavor and worth trying.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, vibrant, ruby coloring with a dense, low profile, off-white head. Nose of roast, rich and tangy caramel sweetness, with nutty highlights. Flavors are roast forward, with a rich blast of caramel, scotch, and mild chocolate highlights. Very tangy and layered throughout, with a full, smooth body. Rich, sweet, roasted aftertaste, with a very smooth finish. Heavy beer, and a very good sipper.

This was a nice scotch ale. I had a really good one in PA over the summer and have been in the habit of trying them when I get a chance but I have been consistently disappointed with the lack of flavor in the scotch ales that i have tried. This scotch ale is not of the smoky variety that is very popular (with me if nowhere else). However it was not disappointing. A good flavor and a strong taste up front. The only disappointment is that the flavor is still just a little simple and it does not linger long on the taste buds.
