UPDATED: MAY 1, 2003 Sweet caramel aroma. Big rocky head that lasted. Lots of maltiness. Just the right amount of carbonation. Went well with my steak dinner. Very tasty, very scottish. I love Scottish ales because they have that distinct Scottish flavor and this is full of it. Very earthy aroma.

karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2002
Sourish, caramel, sweetish aroma and flavour. Slightly refreshing and not heavy enough for a wee heavy!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 18, 2002
500 ml bottle. Dark ruby/brown with massive lasting head. Lovely earthy/sweet aroma; flavor almost as good, smoky and caramel-tinted with a great soft smooth body and warming finish. After the last two crappy VT beers I had tonight, a welcome change. Getting back into Scottish ales, I think...

Excellent scottish ale without too much alcohol content. Beer taste bigger than it is with a mouthfull of malt / chocolate taste. Medium bodied with a smallish off white head.

Very dark. Great smokey, malt taste. I was surprised by the heaviness of this beer. Great taste.

Earthy spirits and smoky malt…Wooden dryness…Not heavy enough for a wee heavy…

mwsf (360) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 2, 2002
Good, but not groin-grabbingly good. Very malty. Soft. Slightly sour. Slight roasted flavors. Strong carmelized flavor. Aroma of malt and slight alcohol. Not as much body as I expected or would prefer. Still quite tasty though.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2002
Dark ruby in color, sweet smokey aroma. Chocolate-raisin smokey flavor.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2002
A rudy/garnet brown color with a smallish yet thick beaded head. Amoma of malt dominate. Slight aromas of dark fruit and oak. Malt sweetness domimates in the flavor as well. Touch of cherry and peat also in the flavor. Finishes with a slight black malt/hops bitterness. One of my favorite scottish ales.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Pours a dark reddish brown with just a touch of head and an enticing aroma of red wine and chocolatey malts. Flavor is somewhat sweet, with a strong chocolate flavor, vinous notes, and some hints of black cherries or prunes. Finishes with a light bitterness.
