COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toasted malts and toffee dominate the aroma and flavor of this decadent Scottish Ale, it starts slightly sweet and creamy with a dry, toasty finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a dark shade of brown with a thin off white head. This recedes somewhat quickly without leaving too much lace behind. The nose brings a good dose of caramel, toffee, and bready sweetness. The taste isn’t terribly sweet but offers caramel and toffee candy flavors as well as some drier bread. Medium body. A nice, soft ale that went down smoothly. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-20-2010

On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark amber body, almost brown, with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin film. Sweet toasty and lightly roasty maltiness on the nose with a light touch of peat. The flavor starts off rather sweet with lots of heavy toffee and lightly roasty malt. Dries up a touch on the back end with a touch of huskiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, rather thick and a little sticky for the average Scottish Ale. Not bad, a touch too thick and heavy for what I think the style should be.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2010 On tap at brewery. Dark mahogany with a luscious tan head, lacing everywhere. Nose is dry, woody, and nutty, some toast and faint sugar/cherry. The beautiful flavor shows a similar balance, rich malt with some toffee, brown sugar, and again, a dry, woody nut. This is not a sweet scottish ale and shows none of the cloying milky notes present in so many other scottish ales. Rather, this is a harmoniously dry balance of malt and toffee. The best scottish ale I’ve tried and nicely complex given the low ABV.
