First sip of this beer was very good, second sip pretty good, although it seemed to taste a bit metallic.
This particular Scottish ale seemed to get more blasé as time progressed. The smell of the beer was of caramel, and bread, but no real caramel taste was present, unlike some other Scottish ales Ive had and liked.
It was a smooth drinking beer, but the finish was fairly spicy, like cloves.
Did not like the way it finished. Another beer I wouldnt turn down, but wouldnt go out of my way to purchase.

A- Deep mahogany with amber accents. Dense khaki head
S- Smokey peat, cocoa nibs, crystal malts.
T- Follows nose well. Slight bitterness present for a style that doesn't normally have it. Lots of roasted malts and caramel. Some bready character.
M- Creamy, lighter body. Rich, yet smooth. Dry finish.
O- Very good. Top notch for the style.

Draft pour at Kuma's Too in Chicago, Illinois. I think this is the second or third time I have had this one. Reviewed from hand-written full notes.
A- Poured from the tap to my pint glass with a deep caramelized brown sugar body with a very thick, light tan head. Creamy texture and good retention. A small frothy ring leaves sheets of lace with drizzle and webs as well.
S- Toasted, nutty Brown malts pop out of the glass. Maltiness is certainly the center off attention with just a bit of dark fruity yeast. Cereal grains, toasted nuts, toffee and caramel.
T- Heavy malts make for a fairly rich flavor. Notes of toasted nuts, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, cereal grains, slight cocoa roast, biscuit and a moderate sweetness. Yeast provides some balance with dark fruits and a bready feel.
MF- Moderately thick, chewy creamy body that is very silky and smooth. Medium carbonation and a definite lack of any bitterness allowing malts to truly shine.
Toasted Brown malts lead to a semi-decadent, satisfying experience especially along side a massive burger at Kuma's. Great job making a less popular style by FFF.
