Dark brown color,small off white head that faded quickly but left a ver small amount of lace.Malty caramel aroma lightly roasty with maybe a hint of hops coming through.malty taste with a decent caramel flavor but still a bit thin.The alcohol is mild at best with just a faint hop presence.Yes it is somewhat sweet with a burnt like quality coming through as well.Over all it's pretty good and definately better then the 2 previous brews i've had from them.Well worth trying again and i's have to say that this brew would make a decent summer drinker.Thanks to Joeybgood for sending this brew.

Cask, RAF Chicago, 2004: Translucent red plum - fairly still with small white bubbles. Malted, alcoholic plum aroma, with some neat grassy notes that join well with the deep peatiness. Crisp, refreshing palate - clean fresh pears and deep orange (non-tart) plum flesh. Though the finish is lacking an interesting catch, the wonderful fruity flavours make an enjoyable experience.

Draft sample, July 03. Medium red, clear, no head; light butterscotch/earthy aroma, not much goin on so I was pleasantly surprised by the powerful brown sugar/anise sweet spicy flavors. Ending is a bit thin, alas my hopes were rising for this one! Still, not a bad choice if passing through Oshkosh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Attractive, mahogany color. Sweet and noticeably malty. I expected a stronger alcohol flavor, though that is more characteristic of a Scotch Ale than a Scottish Ale. A good offering for less seasoned beer palates that nevertheless require some body in their suds.
