Nice reddish, coppery color with a nice foamy head. It had a light coffee aroma with a light bitter taste. Nicely pleasing on the palate with a robust coffee, caramel hit.

Bottle. Pours red copper color with minimal head. Smell is sweet with hints of caramel. Smooth, cream like initial taste with caramel. Low hop medium malt. Good body. Smooth finish with a hint of bitterness. Overall a good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. No head, cloudy light brown to caramel. Full body, some carbonation, moderate flavors not a mossy scotch at all . Different for style but I like.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber-copper pour with white head. Aroma of slightly smokey, rich english malt with a hint of english hops. Taste is sweet, but also very roasty, lots of toffee, dark toasted malt. Palate is light, a tad watery. Good.

Excellent price for a decent wee heavy. No arrogant bastard here but if you’re in the mood for a scottish ale, not a bad choice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear dark copper color, medium head. Aroma of caramel, sugarcane, vanilla, nuts. Light bitter, med lite sweetness. Average carbonation. Finishes off a little weird and week, but overall not bad. Starts off nice. It would be nice to see a bit more kick and warming alcohol in here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: Growler from Collegeville, PA location. Pours ruby red with a 3-finger, but thin, bone-colored head that left a decent amount of lacing. Caramelly roasted malt aroma, with maybe a note of yeast underneath. Body was a touch on the thin side. Sweet, roasted malt flavor, with biscuity yeast in the finish.
