A nice 12 oz bottle I received in trade, but it has been a while now, so I am not certain who it came from. It may have been Sonofalime. Cheers, Micheal. Poured into my beer goblet.
Appearance: A wonderful rich garnet brown with a thin tight head of white.
Smell: The malt come through in the smell with some sweetness.
Taste: A solid tasting beer. This one has nice malty notes with a bit of smoke. A note of dried fruit, raisins and prunes. That may not sound good, but it all goes nicely. The finish is somewhat long and sweet but not cloying.
Mouthfeel: This beer is on the thicker side of medium, as I imagine it should be.
Overall: I don't think I have had any other Scottish ale, so this is my benchmark. I quite enjoy it

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.
Serving type: on-tap
