A - bubbly clear bronze, tall fluffy head held its own for a good while
S - mix of butterscotch and light peat, come sourness and a touch of earthy hops
T - buttery toffee and toasty maltiness dominates, woody and lightly smoky flavours, touch of leafy greens
M - light body with a light smoky and sour feel, finishes light and a little dry
O - an awesome scotch ale, it has all the requisite characteristics in moderation without being aggressive, very easy drinking, and above all a great tribute to a place I must visit some day

cognac type color, light head

strong nose, with dominant hops with some notes of mahagonny and dark exotic woods

taste is very earthy, notes of gingerbread, smoked wood, passion fruit, ...

a rather tweedy, very dry strong ale, lacking a bit of congeniality ...

500ml bottle poured into pint glass 3/2/12

A clear copper with some giant bubbles feeding a short lived finger of cream colored foam that leaves a few patches of lace

S earthy hops and nutty toffee with some vanilla

T very similar too the smell, it almost reminds me of Innis & Gunn but without the oak

M fairly light with just enough bubbles, aftertaste is faint but lingers for a while

O not mind blowing but respectable stuff, lots of flavors for a lighter brew

I'm not upset I bought this one but I doubt I'll buy it again, worth a try but I wouldn't go searching for it
