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

Pours dark brown from 12oz bottle with a very thin tan head that is gone in moments. Aroma is light roasted malt and earthy. Taste follows smell, with malty and dark fruit and coffee notes. Feel is very Scottish Ale though the coffee part is a very stout-like reminder. Overall it's an enjoyable Scotch Ale/Stout hybrid and I'm glad one came my way.

12 ounce bottle, no dating that I noticed on it. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. I like the aroma, the brew smells like roasted and bready/grainy malt, dark chocolate, coffee and some blackberry. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some caramel and earthy flavors too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick, smooth and easy to drink with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good overall brew, forget how much the single of this was but I'm glad I bought it!

12 FL OZ bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black in color and is topped with a skim of tan head that leaves not much in the way of lacing.

I smell roasted malt and ripe, dark fruit.

The taste is chocolate with hints of coffee especially after it warms a bit.

Full mouthfeel

This is enjoyable beer. This is not a style of stout that I dabble in much and found it to be a welcome change of pace.

L) It pours like a silky espresso, although with minimal head and retention.

S) Biscuit, coffee, and dark chocolate. Nothing too complex, just a nice, well-rounded British stout.

T) Everything in the nose is on the palate, as well as a nice minerality that kind of takes the edge off of the black malt bitterness.

F) It has a very wet, drinkable mouth-feel, with medium carbonation.

O) Very pleasant. Easy to get through 3-4 pints.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This nice Scottish Stout pours a
dark mahogany blackish brown with cola high lights and a modest head
of off white foam that subsides to a thick ring. Nose of dark roasted malts,
some peat malts, and that familiar Barley's yeast. Flavors lightly exceed the
nose with light peat smoked malts and a good dose of dark roasted malts
and lightly breaded yeast notes that mingle with light cola and chocolate notes
with earthy malts. Nice mouth feel; medium body, low carbonation, and a sweet
caramel and toffee finish again with that Barley's style yeast strain.

Overall, a decent little stout.
