Notes / Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of the classic ale that originated in Glasgow, Scotland. A full-body ale, rich in malt complexity. Brewed with both English and American barley and many, many specialty malts allowing hints of roasted chocolate, caramel and raisins with very little hop presence.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Dark clear brown with amber edges and dissipating head and nice lacing. Smell at first is of delicate grassy field, light toffee a caramel malt. Taste immediately sweet, then fruity esters, and then a dry malt and familiar scotch ale something, the mouthfeel is really full, creamy and gentle carbonation. It ends with a little butterscotch then a bitterness that appears out of no where but calms down to a satisfying and complex linger.
