Stone of Arbroath has a rich, sweet malty aroma with mellow notes of plum and brown sugar. The mouthfeel has a "mineral-like" softness with highlights of deep caramelized malt derived from a 90 min boil which encourages caramelizing of dense wort sugars complemented by a subtle roast character that finishes with a mild acridity that pleasantly coats ones mouth. Coming in at a warming and subdued 8% ABV it will definitely ruffle many a kilt this spring.

Homer321 (4316) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Can from a trade. Poured into glass. A huge light tan on a murky reddish brown beer. Nose is immediately medicinal and phenolic. Moderate caramel sweetness in the nose. Taste is a weird caramel male bomb followed by a burnt coffee bitterness with metallic off flavors. This is horrible. Dumped.

12oz can in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee and nutty malts, some light notes of chocolate, hints of hops, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid Scotch ale.

Big bold scotch ale that has a thick oil like pour and mouthfeel. Nice alcohol percentage and taste of bog. Took me a long time to get through a six pack.

MattShizzle (600) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Can - from sampler pack. Very dark brown - nearly opaque. Sweet, roasty aroma. Really good. Quite malty but doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

On tap at NOVA Summer Brewfest in Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA. Very hazy, very dark rusty brown with a fine dark cream colored head and excellent lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, blackberries and dark plums. Taste of chocolate, toffee, caramel, roasted malt, tobacco and dark fruit. Medium/full body and low/medium carbonization. On the fruity side for a Scotch ale, but that seems to add to the beer rather than detract. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
