3.3/5 rDev -11.3%
Had this at the brewery. Also had this mixed with the Battlefield IPA. They call it the "Braveheart". Very fitting. I actually preferred the combination of the two.
A: Medium cooper to dark color.
S: Roasted malt aroma.
T: Caramel and Roasted touches. Strong but not over bearing.
O: Very drinkable Scottish Ale. Not bad.

4.55/5 rDev +22.3%
A - This beer has a medium to darker brown appearance as I would've expected for this style. The creamy light colored head has good retention.
S - Roasted malt dominates with hints of peat smoke. This might have something to do with Scottish yeast strain as the guy I asked said they don't use any smoked malts.
T - Good caramel and roasted qualities balanced with subtle hop flavors. Just a tad of smoke at the finish but quickly fades and finishes clean. (This beer is a malt bomb!)
M - Smooth and creamy as one might hope for in any kind of Scottish beer. Really enjoyed this rich but sessionable brew.
O - Would drink this beer often as the weather gets colder or any time I am craving a malty treat (or two) at the end of the day.
