3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Clear, deep, dark mahogany ale with a short-lived, white head. The bouquet is a malty blend of caramel and roasted barley. Full-bodied and creamy with stinging carbonation. The flavor is medium sweet, lightly nutty and caramely with a rumor of phenolic spiciness. Finishes malty, mildly sweet and a hint minerally.

Very dark brown but still translucent. Off white head. So cool I can’t smell the aroma much. It tastes like a straight up amber lager albeit a strong one. I can’t find much Scottish character in this brew but it is a little bit peaty on the finish.

Dark mahogany pour, no real head. Dark fruit, wood, and malt in the nose. Smooth malt and caramel across the tongue with a hint of hops. Finish is clean and a little sweet. Nice beer for malt lovers.

Pint glass at the joint- served a transparent light maroon color with tints of brown. Aroma of toffee with a little bit of peat. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is firm with some very light notes of peat and a fart worth of sweetness. Yeah, that works.
