COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It became a bit of a joke during the early days of the brewery setup when every time someone asked when the beer would be ready, our brewer would reply "10 days" . He stuck with this response for about 3 and a half weeks. A dark amber ale that focuses on the rich, nutty flavors of the malted barley it is made from while remaining very drinkable and satisfying. Malt bill: Marris Otter malt, roasted barley, aromatic malt, flaked oats Hops: Nugget

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2012
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.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2012
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.
