My review of this beer disappeared, so here it is again. This beer looks great and tastes awful. I love the deep amber, nearly but not quite ruby color that reminds me of glowing embers in a fire place. This was my first experience with peated malt and I absolutely hate it. Like licking a band-aid soaked in medicine.

Bit of a disappointment from Brau Brothers. The appearance is a dark amber/light brown with a little head and no lacing. The smell is decent smoky peat aroma. The taste is kind of tart and tannic. Not very nice, nor particular of a Scotch/Scottish ale. I like the idea of a peated ale like this, but this needs more malt to make it work.

Pour shows little head, fades to a still looking body that is a nice reddish amber hue.
The peat i was expecting to get from this is really mild overall and i dont think too much for people who don't like peat. roasted caramel malts.
Flavor wise this is a bit smoked malts, a light peat note that is pleasent, i could actually like it a bit stronger myself, some caramel toasted malt.
The body is a bit thin for what i would want in the style, bring up the body a bit by adding a bit more peat and roasted/caramel malts and this would be really good i think, just a bit light for me, but it does make it very approachable.

poured an attractive brick red color, and required a full center pour for a head that didn't last. Some lacing.
Generally this beer was a good, malty Scotch ale, except for the "peat" flavor. Having drunk and thoroughly enjoyed oaked and smoked beers, and Islay single malt whiskeys, I have to say that this beer didn't taste "earthy," as should be expected. What I had hoped to be a malty, earthy beer, to me tasted metallic with a chemical after taste.
