3.7/5 rDev -4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle.
A - slight head, dark color that is standard for the style
S - not much going on here, slight roasted malt smell but not much.
T - yum. Not my favorite scottish ale, but it is up there. Not as sweet and sugary as Founders Dirty Bastard, with more of a roasted taste to it (but it still has a strong malty flavor to it). If you like roasted malts, you will like this.
M - slight carbonation, not too much and not too little
O - Definitely try this if you enjoy scottish/wee heavy ales, but personally I prefer the Pipeworks Last Kiss and the Founders Dirty Bastard.

4.29/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 fl oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours smoothly with a small tan head. Bubbles never larger than a small BB.
S: As I am not a coffee drinker, the bold smell of coffee and toffee was powerful, but loved the warm feeling that this beer exudes.
T: As I have stated earlier I do not drink coffee, but at one time I did, so the robust taste of a dark roasted coffee is refreshing in moderation. Finishes with a sweet butter toffee feel with strong notes of a dark cocoa.
M: There is a good feeling of bright carbonation on the tongue and a gentle coating not quite unlike a great cup of hot chocolate.
O: Overall this is a great beer to sip on a good cold night. Sitting back and enjoying a great movie with your slippers and a hot roaring fire is what this beer is made for.

3.86/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle poured into a glass.
A: Cinnamon brown with hazy scarlet. Quarter finger of tan, soft head that disintegrates into tiny clear gems.
S: Grapes, cherries and raisins. Dark fruit. Pepper spice.
T: Starts with cherries and raisins, then a honey - syrupy - caramel finish.
M: Low carbonation, medium-heavy body. Syrupy, like honey. Low acidity, low bitterness.
O: This surprised me for some reason. My expectations were lower I guess. Love the look of this scottish ale.
Serving type: nitro-bottle
