VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Red-amber color with a medium head. Earthy hop nose with doughy malt to balance. Thick mouthfeel with a nice hopd profile throughout. Meaty malts with bread dough and toffee showing nicely. Bitter, clean finish. Very nice.

JPDIPSO (4993) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2003
Ruby/amber color with a bubbly light tan head. Fresh hops and mild peat aroma. Deep malt flavors greet your palate. Flavors of peat and dark toffee, along with a slight juniper/medicinal tint. A scottish ale with a kick- no doubt. Outstanding lingering malt and peat flavors, that remind me of chewing specialty malts. A heavy wee heavy.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Brown-red color with a nice white head. Huge hops aroma...pine, citrus, and some sweet maltiness. The flavor was big...malty, hoppy, and everything else in between. This beer packs an alcohol kick...it got me more buzzed than a 6.8% abv should.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Pours a dark clear amber color with a big, off-white rocky head that lingers for a while. Strong hoppy and malty aroma. Medium bodied and strong, quite a robust scottish red ale (bastardized according to the brewers...What the hell is a Scottish red ale?). Flavor is quite malty at first, but the hops kick in towards the end and in the finish. Very good, me likes, me drink again..

Nice dark amber color. Malty aroma with a hint of roastiness. Nice roasted flavor that ends slightly sweet. Quite an enjoyable brew.

jazz88 (2592) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 31, 2002
Bottle. Deep red with a laced beige head. Slight fruit aroma with flavors of berries and a dry finish. Tap in mid-October: Reddish brown with a strong hop bitterness. Malty aroma and a little sweet. Interesting graininess with some smoke burnt flavors.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - OCT 23, 2002
Pudding brown with less head then a debutante. Malt for days, fresh cookie and chocolate with some resinous hops with little bits of brewers yeast laguidly floating around the body. Malt covered hop cones, campfire smokieness, huge in the mouth, Long vinous finish that tapers into an acorn aftertaste.

looks like more of a brown rocket ale, surprising smokiness and nicely hopped
