thegreenrooster (3170) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pour is a thick brown with almost no head at all. Aroma is some super sweet molasses and caramel malt. Flavor is dark fruit with some brown sugar and salt water taffe. I don’t get much peat but this is all about the heavy dark malt. Flavorful beer and a mild alcohol presence for the style.

Deep brown with a tannish brown head. Malty, nutty, a bit sweet, and earthy. Pine, toast, and hops. An interesting, balanced flavor.

Sammy (8398) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle from 2011 summer trip. Dark brown with a small consistent off-white head, and some lace. A rich malted aroma. Medium mouthfeel, however it is smooth. The chocolate, the smoke, the malt, all nicely integrated.

starewich (140) - - NOV 27, 2012
Pours black edged with copper. Smoke, toffee, leaves and dirt. Modest ABV is a nice change; many scottish ales, in their rush to be masculine, turn out overly boozy and sour.

Ratman197 (9522) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle poured a clear brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of toffee, cocoa, raisin and light carmel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, toffee, dark fruit and light earthiness with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.

On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear reddish brown with a tan head and a little bit of lacing in the glass, the flavor has a nice smooth malty front end with a finish of caramel and a little bit of chocolate even, really smooth finish and nice mouthfeel, good stuff.

jlruthven (541) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle, pours murky, dirty brown with moderate off-white head. Nose is sweet-ish caramel malts, hint of smoke, dark, rich toffee. Slight brine to the taste, with a bit of chocolate blending with the roasted malts. Exceptionally creamy mouthfeel, long finish. Crazy flavor for how mild this is. Outstanding.
