Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Toast and a little nuttiness in aroma although subdued. Ruby brown and brilliant. Thin tan head which fades fast. Flavor is sweet with some sherry notes. Very light hopping, earthy in character (reportedly Willamette). Crisp dry finish.

Deep ambercolor with a tall tan head, the aroma of this ale is a bit earthy--grasses and hops in front--with a warm, comforting glow and a clean finish. Very good for this style indeed.

cthomas2390 (222) - Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Dark mahogany pour. Malty slightly roasty aromas. biscuit malts and a slightly spicy and peppery finish. Mouthfeel a bit thin for my taste, though it’s probably not too far off the style.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Faint notes of raisin and caramel. The flavor is on the weak side for a winter ale. Did they even use hops? It’s decent. Definitely drinkable as a random winter session beer.

beerlord (215) - tonawanda, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2007
Dark copper color with a thin tan head. Malty spicey aroma. Medium mouth feel with big malty flavor with a touch of ginger and maybe some orange chocolate. Nice witner beer I got today (aug 13th) on special closeout 2 6 packs for $6.99

tillmac62 (215) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2014
BBD 3/22/14. Pours a clear nice red hued amber with a reasonable head and lacing that fades in 2 minutes. Light nose of molasses over dark fruit - plum with a touch of raisin. The body is medium with good carbonation. The mouthfeel is borderline smooth with a carbonation level above average. The flavor profile is weak - something a Scottish ale should never be. A weak hint of caramel malt and an alcohol presence is all there is over a very light sweetness. The finish is crisp, again, something a Scottish ale shouldn’t be.

shonobiwan (213) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Long Island, NY - poured into a lager glass from a growler. Pours a hazy brown with moderate layer of golden bubbles. Aroma is of roasted malt and a slithering of winter spices. I can sense nutmeg and other spices. Initial taste buds into a malty mix and runs into a bitter end with the nutmeg. A nice production from Brooklyn brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leebotton (212) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Very bready aroma with caramel cereal tones. Deep red with just a few bubbles. Small bubbly mouthfeel with some deeper malty flavours and a citrussy zing. A little dull, although the flavours are good.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Pours dark brown/amber with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is malty and semi-sweet. Flavor is also lightly sweet, malty, and a little fruity. Palate is light/medium with dark semi-sweet and bitter fruit on the finish.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours rich and thick. Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of hops and caramel. Has a strong taste of the same, with a hint of warming alcohol. Robust flavor doesn’t quite hide vague harsh flavors in the finish. Decent.
