Smoke from the bottle!
Pours with a 'Glug-glug-glug' sound.

A gold-tinged reddish-brown, two-finger tan head of bubbles medium and wee. Foamy lacing.
Nutty toffee Malt scent. Highland hints, mossy mild. Watered wisps of stale peat.
Following the nose. Creamy brown sugar, mild, for the style, earthy ale.

For 1 pt. 6fl.oz it seems wise to have a less intense Scotch-Style Ale, as opposed to a four or six pack of, say, Founder's Dirty Bastard, which can shock the system, at first ...

Pours a darkish auburn color with thin khaki head and no lacing. Nose is faint peaty malt and caramel sweetness. Taste follows ,but very mild . Finish is a bit flat and dry. A slightly better than mediocre version of the style.

This would be my first choice if I was going for a scotch ale. Looks beautiful in the glass and goes down way easier than the 8% ABV advertised. After a couple, be careful! You may end up lifting your kilt!

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a hazy auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, brown sugar. Taste is malts, bready, alcohol, brown sugar, some sweetness. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer worth trying.

poured into a 12oz glass. the look is dark brown, and there is a a nice foamy head. There is a weak nutty aroma with hints of malt. The taste is very pleasant, a slight hint of coffee and nuttiness mixed with a great amount of malt.the feel is very foamy for a scotch but is extremely drinkable and smooth. overall this was a great beer, and i would definitely have again.

Brown pour, ample 3/4" tannish head. Aroma had a mixture of earthiness, wood and sweet.

Taste, didn't expect this degree of sweetness. Counteracts the other aspect of the beer, somewhat. Plenty of those toffee, caramel and coffee feels from the malt. Not a ton of peat notes even though there is earthiness. Body isn't overly heavy. Everything Moylans is bomber only, so that isn't going to help any scores.
