Dark amber body topped with an average off-white foamy head. Very pleasant malty aroma with caramel, toffee, and brown sugar hints. Alcohol remains well hidden. Taste is very well balanced. Starts with a sweet feeling and soft carbonation. Then comes solid hoppy flavors. Finish is long and relatively bitter. Very nice Scotch Ale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep copper body and mild carbonation. Nice Scottish malt aroma. Great flavor. Fairly sweet, malty, toffee and candy sugar flavor. Just plain delicious. Very smooth palate. The flavor grabs you and immediately pleases the taste buds but never really reveals a great deal of depth. Still, this is candy for grownups.
