Served from a 12oz bottle in am SABL glass at between fridge and cellar temperature.
A - Orangey copper with a modest 1/2-inch off-white head without much staying power. Lacing is sporadic at best.
S - Toasted, sweet maltiness with some caramel and maraschino cherry undertones.
T - Malty sweetness with a hint of alcohol and dark fruits -- big up front, diminishing in the middle and taking on a touch of tartness, and then coming back in the finish with pronounced breadiness. Not very dry in the finish, and practically devoid of any real hop flavor.
M - Slight viscosity in the drink, with pleasant, tingly carbonation and swelling in the mouth. Swallow is thick and rich.
D - A very nice Scottish Ale, although a bit one-dimensional. Still, it's relatively inexpensive for the style, which makes it a good score.

Having had this fantastic Scottish ale in bottle form, the tap version is just as good if not better. Pours a deep amber with light quickly dissipating head that leaves light white lacing. Smell of caramel, toffee, fresh biscuit, with a light peat smell. Taste is excellent with rich caramel malts and peat malt shinning through. Silky smooth mouthfeel, refreshing for a beer coming in at a higher ABV. Light toffee taste in the back with caramel malts and almost zero bittering hops. Excellent as always and one I would suggest to turn newbie beer lovers onto as well as the experienced beer nut. Cheers.
