On-tap poured into pint glass.
A - One-finger head fades quickly leaving a light layer and substantial lacing. Copper-color pour leans more towards the orangish red side, quite effervescent.
S - Not particularly complex, but very interesting. Mildly sweet and sour, hints of apple cider and buttered toast.
T - Sweet toasty malts, butterscotch cookies and biscuits. Extremely unique, unlike anything I've tried before.
M - A little chewy, light carbonation which keeps it from feeling too heavy or sticky. Ultimately works.
D - A very warm and inviting beer, reminds me of winter. A real hybrid between long-term sipping and refreshment drinking. Maybe it's the fact that I drank it in an Irish pub, but it felt very English to me.

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.
