look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar; closer inspection reveals traces of dark red near the bottom of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a half finger high tan head.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts and smoked malts are present in the nose—peat seems to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is rather malty and has both flavors of caramel and smoke. Only faint hints of bitterness are perceptible, although there's just enough hops in this from keeping it from becoming a malt bomb.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be very easy to drink for a Scottish Ale but is rather easy to drink. I found it to be enjoyable.
