3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: a clear, deep amber hue, and an impressively thick, full, creamy head. Aroma: much on the mild side, and shy to offer itself up, but we do perceive bits of nuts, toffee, cocoa, soft spices, herbs.
On the palate, a nice malty-sweet flavor at first. Body is medium, texture is good, hops are very light, if attending this function at all. Thereís a slight smokey feel, if Iím not imagining it, with lush taste of caramel and such behind. Body feels too thin, though, and those promising flavors soon fade out. Easy to drink, but not much to admire, Iím sorry.

Tasty brew if youíre in the mood for something a little heavier than average. Little if any hops. Malty, slightly sweet with a bit of cafe aroma and flavor. Didnít really quench my thirst, actually it increased it. Popular brew however, and worth a try.

Thanks to my future sister-in-law for this bottle. Not a bad beer. Very drinkable. Just boring. Tasted like a beer with a hint of malt flavor to it.

Good beer, not as good as the Pike Brewing Kilt Lifter, but I still really liked it. Kind of sweet tasting

On tap at Four Peaks in Scottsdale. Dark amber in color, roasted malt in the nose. Very lightly hopped. A bit thin tasting for a Scottish style ale, but flavorful and balanced. Mildly sweet. Not a bad beer at all.

Tried this on tap at a bar in Tuscon, AZ.... Not bad, but nothing worth bringing back to Florida. The "hint" of smokiness is more than a hint. Needs more hops is what it seems to boil down to. And unlike others have been saying -- this batch was not sweet at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, Tempe F.P. Poured a dark amber with a little bubbly head. Sweet roasty malt aroma with a hint of earthiness, and a hint of smokiness (i think). Flavor is sweet (just the right amount, more would be too much), dark caramel, toasted bread, light alcohol, and a hint of smokiness. Finish is not bitter and all in all highly drinkable. Good!
