Scottish week at Lidl in my neighborhood a few of these scotch ales, I can say that all of this is very strong in alcohol and herbs, stained like brown rum smells like smoldering wood, sharp mint / burnt flavor, after washing in the finish
Think I'd rather drink a whiskey and I do not drink that

Beautiful beer. The spiced rum flavors really come through and provide something remarkable. I would go back to this anytime.

Bottled and they've gone upmarket & ditched the clear glass thank god but it's contents are still barely above average ale with little in aroma and flavour and not much rim either

11.2 ounce clear glass bottle. Aged for 57 days. Date on neck Jan 2014.

A: Pours a clear amber with a one-inch thick light tan head which settles to a thin cap and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Dark rum, mulled spices, mildly boozy, toffee and caramel malts, faint oak.

T: Sweetish dark rum, toffee, molasses, mulled spices, minor heat, caramel, oaky wood, faintly fruity, vanilla on warming, trace biscuit.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Mellow, smooth rum and toffee finish.

O: Nice and not too strong for the style. Enjoyed.

330ml bottle. Pale amber colour. Large, frothy, off white head quickly disappeared and left no lacing. Dark fruit and caramel aromas. Pleasantly sweet taste. Medium body, smooth texture and a gentle alcoholic warmth. Would go down well as a nightcap.

330ml transparent bottle. Snifter glass. Rum & yeast as cap is removed. Reddish amber color headed by quickly dissipated off-white froth. Toasted malts, biscuit, herbs & vanilla to the nose while rum, anise, sugar & solvent-like notes are displayed on the back. Toasted, biscuit, brioche flavors & toffee hues. Medium to full body. Moderate to medium-high carbonation. Silky palate. Spicy notes & herbal touches, rum memories & sugar coated fruit flavors join slight earthy bitterness then linger into a sweetish finish. Wood on the aftertaste. Smooth & delightful beer for a paused & long drink.

Pours a very light and clear amber with a finger of white head.

A very rich aroma of rum, toffee and perhaps a bit buttery overall.

A nice balance of toffee and vanilla with a rum finish that lingers in a very sweet aftertaste.

Light body with medium carbonation making it incredibly easy to drink.

A nice brew I wouldn't mind having a few of, especially on a summer evening.
