Bulk_Carrier (2889) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 18, 2015
On tap at Hinesburg public house. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown colorwith a semi-transparent ruddy red around the sides. There’s no head nor lacing. The smell started off with a caramel maltiness with a dried peat, light smokiness and some light chocolate. The taste was moderately smokey sweet, and allowed a nice rolling sweet glazing of the combination of chocolate, peat and caramel into the aftertaste and leave a semi-wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation is pretty subdued but still good for the style. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Scottish ale that I could have again. Definitely goes with food as it helped to add yet meld nicely with Buffalo wings.

AirForceHops (4819) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Sampled at Drop-In. Clear darker amber color with thin head. Nose is toffee, European toasted malt, and almost dark fruit like.

Nice malt character. Ample caramel and toffee with light fruity hops or dark fruit in the back end. Toast and nutty secondary flavors. Some light lingering sweetness. Soft carbonation with a medium body. This would be easy to session, nice classic style.

Murky brown with a small beige head. Sugary smell with roasted malts, a little dark fruit. Taste is similar. Very thin. Leaves more to be desired. But I expect better things from them.
