Good beer, not great. Malt backbone, nice cover art, on the bottle, finishes sweet but not cloyingly fans or anything.

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown hue w/ a small creamy beige head. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Initial taste is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are malt, earthiness, grass, and vodka. Full bodied, soft carbonation, and a warm boozy finish.

One finger head, nice malt sweetness characteristic of a Scottish ale. It has some lovely bitterness at the finish, but nothing unusual in terms of flavor.

Mmm, slightly thick and loaded with caramel flavor. Deep red pour without a head and virtually no lacing. The aroma is quite sweet and tempting. The taste is clean and so smooth at 8%. Iím a huge scotch ale fan and this doesnít disappoint!

Bottle. Clear, copper colored beer with no head. A little syrupy with some sweetness and rusty flavors but good for style overall. Higher alcohol makes it a little warming as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Muddy brown, thinly topped. Slightly malty aroma. But the big, sugary character is a bit of an initial shock. But this settles into a nicely rounded, fully malted beer, easy to drink yet meaty. Well done. (#5356, 12/9/2013)

Keg @ Devils Backbone. The pourís amber with a modest off-white head. The nose is a bit of spicy nutmeg, pepper. Caramel. Pretty earthy. The taste is similar. Baked apple. Burnt brown sugar. Rich malty profile. Some pumpernickel bread. Mellow, smooth on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation. Good.
