12 oz bottle poured into a Founders snifter at fridge temp.
A. Pours a nice kind of red body with an orange hue.Clear body with decent carbonation. Leaves a 1.5 finger head that dissapears quickly.
S. Caramel malts and a little bit of butterscotch,followed by faint hints of apricot.A bit of grain.
T. Caramel malts dominate here,I actually taste a small bit of oats, nice hop presence.Not very complex but I like this.
M. Medium mouthfeel with a good bit of carbonation stinging the palate.Good hop presence to give it a nice dry finish.
Overall I have drank this beer quit a bit due to my brother liking it.Its not the best example of the style by any means but solid. Drinkability is above average. If you see this around give it a shot.

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.
