Bottle. Pours a nice dark tea brown with a brown head. Molasses nose with slight toffee. Taste is actually pretty good. Caramel is prominent with no hop flavors. Not really deep or complex but certainly drinkable.

MarkSachon (574) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Purchased as a 12 oz. bottle from Baruni’s Bar and Hotel in Baden, PA. Pours medium brown with low carbonation and about a quarter inch of foam. Everyone is going to draw comparisons to McEwan’s and in that contest the Jolly Scot can hold his own. A low dose of sugar in the formula means you can drink more than one and not have to worry about splitting your kilt.

PhatB420 (623) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2011
12oz poured into a pint. Smells of confused citurs and honey. No withstanding head. Taste is flat, uneventful, and low brow. Color is a murky amber and red. There is a faint sweetness that I hoped would linger more but subsides fast as the mild carbination follows through. Did not leave me too jolly after the experience.

Red-brown, a light tan cover. Aroma is heavy caramel, molasses, cocoa. Taste is sweet again, almost too much so, candy, toffee, cocoa.

robgibbens (408) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Dark reddish amber color with a large head that dissipates quickly and cleanly. The aroma is very piney. Malty taste ends with a grainy finish. Feels like a very sanitized malty and creamy ale.
