3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Fall River Tap House. Pours a light brown with a light amber hue. Nice malty and caramel on the palate. A little thin bodied for my taste, but still pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at Granzella’s in Williams, CA. Bottled on 8/6/15. Aroma is sweet, floral, and peated. Lots of toffee in the nose, primarily. Moderately hazy cola-colored body with a very small, relatively weak light tan head. Starts with a sweet, sugary, toffee maltiness. Becomes pretty musty and a little swampy in the middle. Quite thin. Light toastiness later on. Definitely a lighter take on the style than I am used to. I prefer these to have more body.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Final Gravity. Pours very dark ruddy copper (against strong light) with a beige head. Aroma of darker fruits over toffee/treacle. Med minus body. Flavor is a malty/toffee thing with dark fruits - for some reason it seems a very little bit smoky. The fruit aspects are nice, but (and I can’t believe I’m saying it) it seems to need a stronger malt body. Drinks ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bomber. Low carbonation with a fairly clean aroma. Taste is dry/thin with too much hop bitterness for style followed by a roasty note. Good beer as a porter?, but lacking as a malt forward driven scottish ale.

22 oz bomber from Grocery outlet, Redding CA. $3.89. Pour’s a deep garnet brown with a very small tan head that dissipate’s quickly, very little lacing. Aroma is heavy malt, chocolate, dark fruit’s no hop aroma at all. taste follows the aroma rich English malt, chocolate, dark fruit’s, a hint of campfire/ roasted marshmallow, sweet with just enough bitterness to balance it out. finish is nice with a nice alcohol warming as it goes down. palate is medium to light. very nice beer for a cold winter’s night by the fire.
