A- Pours a muddy, silt, red with a creamy tan head that fades rather quickly but leaves a decent bit of sticky lacing.

S- Caramel, smoked malt, and some dried dark fruit. Nothing really stands out, and it's not really giving me much to go on. It's not bad, but not very powerful on the nose.

T- Mmmmm... it's like smoked caramel covered dates. This is where the smoke shines like it's supposed to. Some brown sugar sweetness, a touch of grilled pineapple from the hops,

M- NIcely carbonated, but it has a slick feel going down. Leaves a nice dry smokiness rolling around your tongue.

O- Very nice. Not top shelf as far as Scotch Ale's go, but I could see myself drinking this on a semi-regular basis if it was available near me.

My first Scottish ale.

Poured into a snifter. Brown color inside the glass. A lot of dark copper and ruby colored hues emanate from the glass when looked at from the top. Very little head of light tan color. Almost no bubbles and non existent lacing.

Aroma: Sweet caramel and heavy roasted malts presence. Some minor esters.

Taste: Rich malty taste with a good presence of roasted barley and caramel. A good amount of hop bitterness prevents it from going overboard malty. A dry finish.

Mouth feel: Low on carbonation and medium bodied feel. Easy to drink with more bread like malt feel.

Style Rate: 4
Personal Rate: 3.75
