2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Aromas of grassy hops, brine, some nutty malts. It looks enticing, with a perfect coppery-red color and a fluffy white head. Lots of nutty, roasted malt flavor, some peaty, smoky flavor akin to Scotch, with the hops only there for structure and a biting finish. The finish is a bit strange for me, with a sharp dried-hop bite and a lingering smoky flavor. It does have a nice, creamy mouthfeel that counters the smoky flavor.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
440ml can. Amber/brown pour with small lasting off white head. Aroma is soft and malty, almost nonexistent. Flavor is light caramel and malt. Kinda boring but velvety smooth...one and done.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 0.5l bottle. Skunky aroma. Clear dark amber color, lame head. Unpleasant flavor with some malty, nutty and hoppy notes saving it from being the biggest disaster ever. Strangely soapy bitter finish. Do not recommend.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Smell is remotely skunky with notes of sweet caramel. Flavor is almost similar to a porter or sweet stput. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a great looking beer, little carbonation, head dies to a ring, copper colour. Aroma is mild. Maybe some sweet malt. Taste is OK. Not a lot of peat or smoke, but it still is a very drinkable malty beer. Itís a little sweet. Finish is a bit creamy. Overall, not a bad beer. Not a giant Scottish ale, but OK.

Light malt, caramel, some hops. Really low profile, but quite nicely balanced and OK drinking beer. Liked sweetness
