Guest draft at Right Proper. Murky dark brown body with russet highlights. Spotty beige filmy head. Aromas of ripe plums, dark raisins, a hint of chocolate. Chocolate covered raisins in the flavor tempered by a mild bitterness. Brown bread, toast, malty body. Good stuff.

First time trying this style of beer. Not my favorite style so all my ratings would not be good

Overall a nice scottish ale. Not overdone with the peat.

12 oz can poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Deep copper with ruby highlights. Has 1-2 fingers of loose, tan head.

Nose
Caramel, smoke, pumpernickel, and a touch of metal.

Taste
Rye and pumpernickel breads. Peat smoked malt and earthy char. Light touch of caramel.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, oily, and slightly chalky.

Overall
A bit underwhelming but good enough to warm my bones.

Brown with ruby edges. Malty nose. As expected, the flavor is malty but it is fairly low-key considering this is a “big” beer. There is just a touch of caramel sweetness and a hint of dryness on the finish.

Dangerously sessionable for a Scotch Ale that clocks in at 8%.

Not much going on with this scotch ale. Maybe it needs a bit of barrel aging.
