This rich malty ale is best when shared among friends. So let us offer you a traditional Scottish toast.

Clear dark amber pour with initial big head which dissipates to small residual bubbles coating the glass. Excellent balanced hop and malt presence which ends with a pleasant spice taste. The alcohol is warming. A very comforting beer on a very cold Wisconsin winter evening. Totally enjoyed.

Pours a very dark mahogany, almost black, with a thin tan head that mostly dissipates. The nose is roasted malt. Very rich and creamy on the palate. The taste is full of caramel, dark roasted malt, a touch of smokiness and a hint of hops to finish slightly dry. Very good tasting beer chock full of flavor. Pairs well with a Rueben sandwich.

Pours a dark ruby brown with an active tan head. Darned near opaque. Lots of sweetness in the aroma. Taste is toffee, caramel and some roasted maltiness. Long residuals in the creamy palate. Quite excellent!

12oz bottle poured into an thin Allagash tulip. No date on bottle. Label different than the current picture on this site. Has a small but strong long lasting head, never fully fades. Body is dark brown, cannot see through it. Aroma is strong: earthy yeast notes surrounded by dry and bitter brown malts. Smells as a Scottish should: strong but earthy with just a wee bit of toffee/butterscotch. Flavor blows my mind: the right kind of caramel with a present bitter malt character. Not sugary but sweet caramel that is powerful and absolutely counteracted by a dry, well attenuated flavor and malt bitterness. The bitterness sticks around as the drying aftertaste of earth, bark, and soil mix with a nicely lean body. I can taste the beer for minutes on in after a sip. Just amazingly well made and one of the best Scottish-style ales I have ever had. Filtered beer as I see nothing at the bottom of the bottle. Would love to try a cask version or at least an unfiltered version. Kudos Central Waters, kudos. I will need to pick up a sixer one day soon.

Dark Brown/Borderline Pitch Black with a soapy brown head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts/barley, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Taste is a sweet malty mixture of chocolate, roasted barley, caramel, toffee, mild citrus hops and coffee. Aftertaste is a sweet-ish chocolate flavor. Body is on the heavier side with some moderate carbonation. Very Malty & Very tasty!

jlruthven (609) - 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.
