It was very nice. A little sweet for my taste but definitely warming (takes the edge of brewing in the garage in winter).

There is a solution for you if the regular Hot Scotchie is too sweet - wait to drain the wort into your cup until after the first hop addition! Done it, and it wasn't near as repulsive as I thought it might be. I did prefer the non-hopped version though.

I have a friend who's dying to try it with rum, but in my opinion, sweet + more sweet just won't cut if for me. The Scotch provides the balance, and that's why it's one of the bestest things on the planet in my opinion!

Great idea, I'l have to try it after the hops - that sounds really interesting.
