Great Scott!

Appearance (3.75) : Pillowy, tight knit head with some larger bubbles on top. Rests at about 1 finger. Body is iced tea colored and mostly opaque.

Smell (3.25) : Aroma is of spice, cinnamon, rice, liquid smoke, and some rubbing alcohol. The bouquet is very loud. The rubbing alcohol unfortunately comes out on top as the most dominant smell, with everything else underneath.

Taste (3.25) : Strong alcoholic malt notes with a heavy hop profile. The malt and hops play tag with each other and they do a yin-yang thing on the palate. Bitter barley is what I would call it. Almost a vienna lager type taste. I get some coffee notes in there very faintly...dirty grounds. Bitter kidney bean. The dude nailed it when he said a band-aid soaked in medicine. Quite crude, but I laughed because it is so accurate. Ends smooth.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Creamy, crisp, smooth. Ends a bit milky on the palate.

Overall (3.27) : My first Peated Scottish Ale. I don't think it's bad, but I wouldn't buy it again. It's just not my type of beer. With that being said, it's drinkable, but the strong alcohol presence really turns me off, especially at only 7.6% ABV. I'm drain-pouring this one unfortunately.

Sampling right now on 6/27/14. From the Brau Brothers Brewing Co. LLC in Lucan, Minnesota (Population 220). Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a brandy snifter glass.

Pours a hazy deep amber in color with a smaller off-white head. LOTS of lacing is seen when sipped that first leaves rings then slowly slides back down. Lots going on with the aroma and there is hints of caramel, medium roasted malts, with slight herbal and yeast. Even more going on with the taste with a nutty and dark fruit at the end with a slight tangy finish with a touch of smoke. Overall, it was decent. It's a 'sipper' and not a 'chugger' brew though.

Bancreagie pours a hazy dark amber color with a nice large lacing head. There is a weak aroma, with a sweet but sharp malt aroma. The taste has a nice mellow malt flavor flavors, very balanced, with a hint of a sourness. Overall its a nice drinking mellow scotch ale.
