mighty_meadow (270) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
330ml bottle. Says 6.1% on the label. Pours deep red. Aroma of dark fruits especially blackcurrant. Tastes malty and fruity. Blackcurrants again. Head has totally disappeared. Quite a dry finish. Decent if not great.

Not particularly memorable scottish ale. Dominated by the malts and rich in caramel and toffee. Off putting aftertaste.

Draught @ Bubba Gump NYC: This one poured a crystal clear amber color. There was a very small head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Some spiciness and malts, but no real sweetness to the aroma. Decent enough taste. Somewhat dry, malts, spices. Pretty smooth. Not bad.

Pours a dark golden color with an off white head. Aroma and flavor of subtle malt and spice.

slowrunner77 (6160) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Scores a touch low. A wee heavy this is not, but it warms up nicely to be a malty toffee and fruit forward Scottish ale. Very light smoke and hops. Finished sweet. Pleasant, if not too complex.

onceblind (4698) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Clear deep chestnut amber with a head that recedes really quickly. Sweet raisin and lightly cherry accented toffee nose of winter ale malt. Smooth and sweet nutty flavor with some nice dates and cherries with a doughy brown malt and belgian candy sugar. Nuanced and flavorful but needed more body.

HourGlass13 (151) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is malt, a touch of skor candy. Flavor has that same candy like molasses, a touch of dates, and some toffee notes. Moderately thick, smooth, easy drinker. Enjoyable brew this year.

Light brown pour, nice off white head. Caramel, malty nose. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet malty flavors... too sweet maybe? Not much depth in the flavors.
