Bottle. Pours a deep red color, tan head that left a nice lacing on my glass. Nice strong aroma, some caramel and I can smell the hops. Smooth flavor, not as hoppy as I expected, but nice malty and bitter taste with some wood and caramel notes followed by a bit of alcohol. Alcohol is more evident in the aftertaste, as well as some of the wood flavor. A good brew, something that I could enjoy every day.

Dark amber-red with yeast sediment. Modest malt aroma. Flavor is malt up front with a nice hops finish.

very nice, thank you alex. pours dark amber with a fat tan head on it. tastes very much like a scotch ale with some kick. smell is hoppy and malty and the taste is very similar. a very nice, rich brew that doesnt leave me disappointed in the least.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Dark amber. Nice full fruity and malty nose, very well developed and soft smelling, pleasent. Flavor is very mellow but full and complex, wood-aged almost. Really excellent.

This stuff is awesome! Caramel/molasses aroma and flavor with a very tasteful hop finish. After having, and loving, the Racer 5 IPA, this one confirms the talents of the BR brewmaster. Every sip is a delight. A bomber is the perfect size for this beer, because 12 oz. simply wouldn’t be enough.

Very nice thick large lasting head atop a bronze and red body. Aroma was hoppy and copper like. flavor had a bit of alcohol and creaminess with a slightly pleasing metal flavor

Wow, hoppiness over Redness. There is a good malt profile here, it’s just buried underneath a bunch of grass and perfume. Very drinkable by any standard but packed with flavor. The Scottish aspect of this may be stretched a bit thin, but I think the beer holds its own.

On tap at Toronado, 05.22.04 Big pine (amirillo?) hoppiness emanates from a thick, lasting, beige head. Cardboard maltiness at first, smooths out to a clean and cleansing hop middle/finish. Refreshing and easy to drink 7%er. A very popular beer everywhere I saw it on tap.

This is a clean amber looking ale with a large tan head. There is a quick hit of carmel malt followed by a burst of sharp citrus hop aroma. The flavor is strongly bitter, which I enjoyed, although I expected more malt. There was a faint carmel malt presence, but it didn’t quite balance the hop taste. Regardless, I enjoyed the malt bill in this one. One that left you asking for another sip. Thanks to mardermax
