This was a pretty ho-hum beer. Not much aroma. The flavor is just a bit sweet, not very strong, fairly flat really. Overall just not that great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Urge in RB/Poway on the Tap Takeover night. They had 25different brews from Ballast Point that day, however iíve had this one a bunch of times. Itís not my favorite brew they make, but only because this isnít my favorite style. Malty and thick sweet and nutty. Mouthfeel and overall palate is light, and clears out quickly. Leaves a rather flat malty bitterness lingering.

Poured up on tap at the Chandler, AZ Whole Foods (who knew?) with ruby dark red body and tan head. The aroma has sweet malts, prune infused molasses and sweet Scotch Whiskey notes. The taste has smooth molasses mixed with prunes and then getting both raisin like and infused with Scotch Whiskey. Itís pretty darn smooth and maintains its flavor right into the finish.

A decent offering, well worth the money and iíd definitely get it again. Just didnít knock my socks off. A little thin, nice caramel, not too smokey which i appreciate, lacks a little bit in the crotch though.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ BP. Dark amber hue with dissipating white head. Nose is caramel, nuts, peat, light smoke. Flavor is very smooth and caramely with hints of melanoidin sweetness, peat, bread, and ash in the background, finishes lightly sweet. Medium body an carbonation. One of my favorite Scottish ales, full of flavor and wonderful texture.
