3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I typically like Scotch Ales so when I saw this in the local beer store I picked up a 6 to try. It has a bit of a smoke aroma, a nice dark brown color and a dry finish. Overall I think it was a good find that I’ll be sure to try again in the future.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle from billvane: pours a brown colour with a tan head that leaves a thin line with some small amounts of lacing. aroma of caramel malts, earthy hops and a small amount of dark fruit and roastedness. flavour is roated, chocolate, caramel malt to start with dried fruit and some chewy bread. a very little amount of hops in the finish. this is a very thick and creamy on the palate, but most enjoyable.

bottle....apearance: dark-amber reddish brown which poured with a one inch off-white head....aroma: dark fruits, pretty malty albeit with some hope bitterness to it as well....taste: caramel malt sweetness, smokey with a bit of roasted bitterness that cuts through in the finish. a medium bodied beer that definitely is satisfying.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Deep brown beer with a light amber-red tint to it. Sweet toasty aroma, light berry fruitiness behind heavy brown sugar, light molasses and a sweet plumminess as well. Deep caramelized malt with a touch of burnt sugar character as well. Very rich tasting. Flavour shows a bit of peppery ethanol behind the sweet toffee and caramel. Slight salty with a hint of smoke on the back. Nice stuff.

Pours a nice brown color with a beige head. Hints of malt, alcohol, and hops in the aroma. Has a very earthy taste in which the hops nicley balance out the maltiness. Nice beer!
