Sampled back on 11/3/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a nice copper in color with a small off-white head. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of roasted malts with some caramel sweetness. Very pleasant. The taste was even better than the aroma actually with a touch of smoke. Very easy to drink and no harsh bitter aftertaste.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Slightly hazy (lots of sediment) with a old copper penny color (or a burning sky). Very small bright white head with spotty lacing,

S: Toffee and caramel sweetness. subtle spicyness hiding underneath the malt aromas.

T: Smokey and peaty (like a nice scotch). toast and bread crust. Caramel sweetness with a clean finish

M: low carbination, moderate mouthfeel.

O: This was a solid Scotish Ale. More peaty/smokey then most I've had but I enjoyed it. I don't know if the sediment in my bottle was normal (which i don't mind) or not but it seamed exesive.
