Dark brown / ruby with tight, creamy head. Aroma of malt, wood, peat. Taste is more dark malt, overall very smooth, some smoky and bitter on the palate. Nicely done.

I stumbled across this and had to try. I love Scottish Ales and this one ranks as one of the top 3 at least that I have had . Comes in at 8 % ABV with a hint of alcohol at the finish . Golden chestnut color and nice head when poured.
Very nice price point at under $10 for a 6 pack. Very nice beer to share with good friends and good company. Well Done!

A surprisingly white, sticky head (no pun intended) with a dark, almost coffee-like color. The smell is obviously malty but with a small splash of roasted coffee notes. Feel is silky. When tasting, think a cold glass of chocolate milk. The malts are dark but don't feel heavy. The finish is clean and doesn't leave a film of staleness that some heavier ales have.

A rare scotch-ale that I can enjoy right out of the fridge (mostly because I can hardly wait to drink it).

Absolutely one of the best beers I’ve had in a very long time. Smooth with strong chocolate and coffee notes. Wonderful biscuit aftertaste. My favorite brew right now. Try it!

Its good, really good in fact....but I have had better (to be honest). A top quality yet still affordable scottish ale that comes in a 6-pack at 8%. My personal preference is for a little more sticky, malty flavor in a scottish but this beer is smooth with a little spice and I'll definitely enjoy drinking the other 5.

This one nails all the characteristics you want in a scotch ale, and then some. Wife and I both noticed some extra spice in there that reminded us both of a pumpkin beer. That could be good or bad depending on what you like. Will definitely buy this again.

Murky brown colour. Fruity nose, sticky tree fruits and yeasty. Yeasty and fruity throughout, very light for a scotch ale. Hints of nutty and toasty grains at the end. Bit of a tang on the finish that lingers. Balanced and not too heavy; light to medium bodied.
