Roasty and sweet are the two biggest flavors for me. Very tasty would buy again.

Lovely dark amber with a persistent golden head. Nice blend of malts in this brew -- and you can really taste the smoke. A faithful take on Scottish-style ale.

Lacking in taste...just mediocre for me.

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 26 December 2014

Appearance: Pours a rich copper color with a sizable head that quickly diminishes. Crystal clear. Looks magnificent.

Smell: Sweet caramel notes, just as one hops for in a Scotch Ale.

Taste: Rich caramels at first give way to a surprising burnt roastiness. I really liked how this one tasted on the front of the tongue, but on the back it was more porter or stout-like than a Scotch Ale. I could have used less of this and more well developed caramel/honey flavors or undertones of rich vanillas. This beer could obtain more of these flavors through aging.

Feel: Smooth as silk with medium carbonation.

Overall: A good beer, but not what I'd consider a traditional Scotch Ale due to the assertive roasted notes. Nonetheless, a good beer from a brewing company I'm anxious to try more from.
