Of all the scottish ales i have had tue pleasure of trying this is by far the best. It has a beautiful caramel color with a lovely lick head. Once you smell this beer you will be yurning to get a taste. The powerful and almost overwhelming taste is so good that i could drink it daily.
Absolute best scottish style ale

A-Deep brown, ruby on the edges, two finger tan head.

S-Peat, malt, some smoke, nuts, caramel.

T-Very malty, peat and smoke notes come through. Could use more smoke for my liking. Caramel, chocolate and some nuts. Almost like a brown ale in some ways.

S-Medium to heavy in body, nice carbonation and smooth.

O-A wonderful beer. I love a well made scotch ale and this is a great example.

A- Pours a darker mahogany color, little to no head.

S- sweet fruits, dark malts, very earthy with a touch of grassy hops.

T- sweetness permeates, fruity, with a roasty malt backbone.

M- Very smooth, full, low carbonation

Overall- a solid Scottish Ale here, good maltiness

I've had this brew many times. Finally getting around to a review. Thanks to Dave for bringing a bottle over. The beer is dark amber with burgundy highlights. Aromas of toffee, brown sugar, yeast. Brown breads and malt with yeast and a touch of hops in the finish. Alcohol presence is moderate. Medium carbonation with a growing sweetness. This is alright.
