4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A wine-like beer with a sultana profile. Almost a Xmas pud. One to savour, especially at 6.7%

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark auburn color, frothy white head. Nice aroma; faint chocolate malty notes, tinny. Slightly tinny tastes, sweet malty body and a slightly tart palate. Tastes kind of old, but hasnít reached the best before yet. hmmm. Think this one might be overrated.

This was a very mellow flavored ale. However It had a slight bitterness to it at first, but I really enjoyed the flavor and overall characteristics.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper with an initially fat rocky tiny bubbled head, leaves an intricate pattern of lace. Medium heavy carbonation for a Scottish ale. Slows but remains steady. Earthy aroma, peat and toffee and light dishwashing liquid. Medium bodied (body in a Broughton brew?) with a sultry malt backbone. Toffee, port and a crisp sweetness. Finally! A sip and savor, and fully enjoy, brew from these guys. Thick caramel maltiness and dried fruit slickness remain with each sip, as does a tangy smokiness (light but evident). Body has depth and actually fills your mouth. A nice brew that I will revisit often.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a superb Scotch ale. Not too sweet with a very rich, malty flavor. The hint of licorice is an added bonus. Let it warm and you will love it.
