The bottle poured out a cloudy copper orange body with a half finger high off-white head. The head slowly dissipated to a thin lace. The initial aromas were sweet with dark fruits, caramel malts, and barley.The initial flavors were of dark fruits, and a heavier hit of barley with some caramel to back it up. The beer had a light to medium body with light carbonation.
Overall this was a decent light beer. I can't say that I have had anything like it, but I wasn't blown away either.

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.
