First off, this is a SCOTTISH ale not a SCOTCH ale. But, if you disregard the name, this is a fine beer. Darker colored and very full flavored. But be careful... with 8.5% alcohol, these beers will knock you for a loop if you drink them like a typical lager.

As scotch ales go, this one should be considered a standard against which other Scotches should be judged. An orange color with a head that starts strong even if it finishes weak (try a straight

VERY malt dark bronze orange. Pretty typical scotch ale nose. Taste is where things get exciting. Malt sweetness, oak and caramelized malts. Really solid and tastes bigger than 8%

This is all right, but the hops used are just a bit too bitter for my liking.

Subtly cereal, sweet caramel malty aroma, perfectly balanced. Beautiful rich dark red colour. Surprisingly subtle flavour at first leading into a creeping cereal taste accentuated by the caramelisation.
