On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. At first glance the head has mostly fine foam with rather lively looking large bubbles that leave a solid trace for lacing as the level recedes. The aroma is mildly toffee-ish with a wisp of molasses. The texture is airly robust even for a Scottish ale. A sip can be a mouthful. The overall taste has both the sweet & bitter of burnt sugar with a solid malty background. In a word substantial. I had to look twice when I saw a mere 5.2% as the ABV. It has all the character of the bigger bolder choices out there. Pretty unique, in a good way.

On tap at Bluephies' in Madison, Wisconsin. Served in a shaker pint 11/11/2014.

A- Dark cola-brown body, opaque but not quite black. Half finger white head, minimal retention time. Rings of lacing. [3.5]

S- Smooth toffee, earthy hops. Brown malt. Not too complicated, but balanced quite nicely. [3.75]

F- Toffee, caramel, earthy hops, sweet brown malt. Similar to the nose. There is a slight roast to it as well. Again, not particularly complex but everything comes together quite well. [4]

M- Medium bodied, on the thinner end of the spectrum. Fine carbonation, has a nice pop to it. Nice and reasonably sweet toffee finish that isn't cloying or off-putting. [3.75]

O- Very nice scottish ale. Straightforward flavours that are delicious, not as much complexity but certainly a nice shelf sixer if you enjoy Scottish ales. [4]

Final score: 3.90

Pours very dark with hints of amber and burnt caramel. Moderate tan head. Aroma of plum, cherry, molasses, and bread. More stone fruits and molasses in the taste as well as hints of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied with a light to fair amount of carbonation. Very drinkable, one of my favorites of the style.
