A bit light for a Scottish Ale but overall pretty good. Complements lighter food well. Could use a bit more flavor as it seems a bit diluted. Worth a try if you are new to Scottish Ales, as it will not overwhelm you.

pours out a dirty and clouded cola colour with a thinnish and quickly reducing light tan head. little lace. hearty aroma of cocoa and nougat maltiness with a distinct smokiness and underlying red ripe fruitiness. smells really good. the flavour profile brings the malty goodness...more bitter malts, astringent at times, with peat smoked notes. the usual nuances of dark chocolate, caramel, and burnt wood round things out. there is a very noticeable back end, bottom bouncing raw, earthy and herbal bitterness that is unique as i taste this. it certainly lingers afterwards...as there really isn't too much residual sweetness to balance out. it tastes pretty good. where things get disappointing is the overall body and mouthfeel. the body is weightless, and does nothing to support the taste profile. this leads to the watery mouthfeel, which detracts from this concoction standing up on it's own, without a snack pairing. therefore the drinkability is just ok...interesting, easy quaffing, and somewhat tasty.

overall, this is a nice wintertime treat. obviously meant to be paired with some granite city grub, as it soon becomes obtuse on its own. a pint or two of this and a hearty burger would be a great choice on cold winters night.

for me polishing off a growler by itself, it leaves me wanting.

website lists this as a "Scottish Style Export Ale".
