This beer was served out of a 12oz. bottle dispensed into a glass....
Appearance - Neat lookin label. Poured a light brown/copper color with a 1/2 finger tan head which disappears very quickly into a thin foam ring. Leaves a light lacing on the glass.
Smell - Molasses/prune scent dominates. Slightly hoppy and malty smell on the backend.
Taste - Toasty molasses/prune/raisin taste with a hint of maltiness. Not much for hops or bitterness
Mouthfeel - A heavy and full bodied beer with very light carbonation.
Drinkability - Semi-smooth offering that has an aquired flavor and is heavy resulting in it not being overly drinkable.
Worth a try but was not for me because I am not a big prune guy so the flavor just threw me a bit. Not a bad beer overall though..

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.
