Tap at Devil Craft. Cola, or maybe Dr pepper. Malty sweetness, blackberries. Interesting. Nice doesn’t feel like a scottish ale. When warms up, bit more maltiness, and what you’d expect. Fudge and toffee.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Black Raven, pours a clear dull amber with a small beige head. Aroma reveals notes of dry caramely bready malt. Flavour is caramely and bready malt-heavy, with a little syrupy quality without being cloying. Decent attempt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught:   Bright copper, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, somewhat nice lacing.   Fairly assertive nutty aroma, bready, but not too much in the way of peat or smoked/charred wood.   Soft breadiness on the tongue, malty, a bit nutty, with very soft mealy notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft finish, not too big.   Malty, but a touch of cereal lingers.   Wished it were a bit sweeter, has a slight astringent maltiness, perhaps husky straw type bitterness.   Otherwise decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Elephant & Castle in Seattle during a "Meet The Brewers" event. The beer pours dark brownish-amber with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty with some caramel and hops notes. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, resiny hops and caramel. The finish is sweet with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.
