3.89/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

This is an easy brew to drink....I believe it's one of the most under-rated breweries out there.

I have tasted my way around Scotland several times and this is the closest to good Scottish ale that I have found in the U.S. so far. I love the sweet full taste. I purchased it locally but when I went back for more it was no longer there. I need to see more of it. Hopefully that will be soon.
