superspak (2215) - Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear ruby red color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, raisin, plum, apple, molasses, brown sugar, light roast, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, raisin, plum, apple, molasses, brown sugar, light roast, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, raisin, plum, apple, molasses, brown sugar, light roast, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a nice malt/yeast balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Scottish ale. Good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2014
Rated on 01-31-2014 (Bottle labeled best before April 2014) This beer has a small creamy, smooth ivory head that mostly diminishes, transparent orange body with fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is malty, toasty, caramel, rich, fruity, and spicy. The taste is malty, spicy, caramel, rich, earthy, and toasty. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable, malt upfront in aroma and flavor and a beer I would drink again.
