Pours a very lovely dark brown. Bit thin on the head. Smells strongly of caramel. Slightly spicy initially and on the aftertaste, with heavy caramel and a hint of bitterness in between. Overall, a solid beer that I would drink again.

Pours a clear tawny body with a nice amount of light tan head. The scent brings up great malty tones with dark fruit and other perfectly roasted characteristics, and bittering hops coming through. The taste continues with a faint fruitiness and crisp bitterness, leading for a smooth, balanced finish. Overall an awesome Scottish ale beer, I am pleasantly surprised by it!

Scotch/Scottish Ale is one of my favorite style but this one just comes out short. Nice ruby color, but the taste is too weak for my palate. Not a bad beer, but definitely not an impressive one.

Served from a 341ml bottle

A: Brown with reddish tinges when pressed against light. Small one finger head that died down at a moderate rate leaving some lacing.

S: Mostly toasty malts with really no hops.

T: This beer is a malt bomb. Mostly a toasty malt sweetness. Hop bitterness is very low and next to non existent. A little bit of dark caramelized fruits, earthiness, and nuttiness are available on the palate as well. For the most part the beer relies on the toasted and caramel malts though.

M: Carbonation is fairly low but that makes it even more drinkable. Maybe a little bit of a thinner body then I would like too but this might feel like its amplified because the carbonation is lower then average.

O: Pretty good beer. I liked it and would consider buying it again. It would be no problem drinking a few of these. It seemed extremely similar to one of my brown ale home brews .Tasty but nothing astounding.
