3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark copper-amber-brown color with soft off-white head. Light smoked aroma and taste. Taste is also malty rich, like a brown ale meet marzen and some smokiness in it.
Notes: Humorously on the wrong tap and quickly corrected, this was going to be the most "hefeweisse-like scoth ale" Iíve ever tried!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Caramel sweetness and a nuttiness that rounds it out nicely. Cloudy amber with a rich beige head. Almost Pecan and caramel with a rich sweetness that follows through to the end. The smoke is very mild if there at all and I think that is that nutiness I get. Nice beer, matly and sweet but not enough smoke characteristics.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a red ale with brown hues. A etched surface of whites. Smells of smoke, some sweet malts, some cocoa and toasted malt. Nice nose. Flavor is sweet with some oak and mesquite char. There is a solid malty syrup flavor. A bit too sweet. Medium on full bodied with a moderately low carb. Dry finish. Well, this is interesting. Not bad, but nothing special

22 oz bottle. Hazy ruby brown with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of cherry, light smoke, raspberry, heavy malt and some cranberry and fig. Taste is of malt, buttery biscuits, fig, light leather, cherry, and toffee. Disappointing...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz waxed bottle poured. Pours a dark thick reddish amber. Low clarity. Aroma is sweeter and boozier but still has a leafy earthy soil Scottish aroma. Flavor is less sweet and less boozy which is better. Goes great with a slightly thicker mouthful. A nice long soil and bitter brown malts aftertaste.
