Re-evaluated not what it once was....
Easily one of the best canned beers I've ever had. (2005)
Great dark brown/red color that lets an intense light show great clarity. Big fluffy tan head that retains all the way down the glass.
Impressive smell of raisins, nuts choclate & rum (makes me think of the holidays.
Thick malty sweetness and faint hops bitterness entagle themselves from the front of the tounge to back of the throat with a omnipresent sweetish yet balanced aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. Carbination ain't quite there.
Heavyness which gives all the flavor only detracts from the drinkablity in minute amounts.
Serving type: can

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear reddish-brown with a smallish light tan head. Average head retention
Aroma has strong notes of caramel, smoke and toffee. It is perfectly to the style of Scottish Ale. The smoke really makes this aroma in my opinion.
The flavor has strong toffee and burnt caramel notes along with more of the smoke that is present in the aroma. Bitterness is on the moderate side but it is enough to balance out the sweetness from the abundant malt.
Overall, a very nice beer that is quite drinkable for the strength. I’m not a huge fan of the style but this is one of my favorites.
Serving type: on-tap
