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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Serving type: on-tap
