My first review (so far I've just just enjoyed reading others').
A: A deep reddish brown; in a glass, virtually no lacing, which is something I miss when it's not there, but maybe that's just the style. But when is appearance really a drawback if everything else works?
S: I find the aroma very appealing: chocolate, caramel-apple, coffee, rum. Hops aroma mostly hidden in all that maltiness. One of my favorite aspects of this beer.
T: Rich and flavorful. Less punchy than other Scottish ales I've tried, but then again my experience with this style is fairly limited. Smoky and smooth with a lingering aftertaste that is quite satisfying.
M: For a somewhat syrupy beer with low carbonation, it has a nice tingle at first, followed by a warm, light liqueur sensation.
D: I like this beer quite a lot. I'm drinking it for the the first time, and already I'm sure it'll go into my buying rotation. Heavy for a session beer, though. Egészségedre!

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.
