4.15/5 rDev -2.1%
On-tap at Alcatraz (Orange)
A: The pour is a dark copper color with a somewhat short lived off-white head, settling down to a thin layer.
S: The nose is a very nice blend of nutty toffee that, sweet caramel malt, and a hint of vanilla. Surprisingly aromatic and pleasant.
T: This one starts of nicely sweet with some mild peat notes to balance that out. Again, sweet toffee and mildly nutty with a really nice vanilla character. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish.
M: The body is medium with a smooth, creamy carbonation.
D: This was actually very good. I always want to like Scottish ales, and this one allowed me to do so. I'd definitely recommend this beer.

4.28/5 rDev +0.9%
One of the two spring releases by Alcatraz Brewing, on to the beer:
Poured into a pint glass on draft, it's dark brown to opaque in color with a creamy head that leaves pretty good lacing on the glass. This was a hit with me, very sweet flavor with hints of cocoa, smoke, and caramel. The alcohol brings fruit esters to the palate, as does a subtle hop flavor. Firm, smooth, and thick in feel. Love it! If I weren't driving, I might have asked for another. A pleasing brew.
