3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the brewpub, reddish dark-brown color with light tan head. Aroma notes of toffee, cocoa and dark fruits. Taste adds caramel, chocolate and some earthy bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, creamy with light roast finish. Not normally a fan of Scottish ales but this is quite tasty.

Easy drinker, dark rich pour. Lightly hopped but not too sweet. First sip the alcohol was up front but not noticeable for the second sip. Will definitely drink a couple more before I leave town.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Draft sampler at the brewpub on August 7, 2013. Very dark brown/ruby hue, tan head, good strong aroma of malt and dark fruits, medium body, easy to drink but with character and some depth, flavor of malt, fruit, mustiness (in a good way), coffee finish. The best of the flight of Front Street’s year round brews. I hope to return sometime and try some of their other beers, especially the more "advanced" sampler.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown with a smallish off-white head on it. Nose is toasty and very malt forward, with a slight bit of caramel in there. Taste has the caramel coming through, and finishes slightly sweet. Very drinkable.

Said to be their flagship. And pretty good stuff. Great dark brown appearance with a creamy brown head. All malt in the flavor - leaning towards the caramel and maybe darker varieties. Not my style, but it certainly passes the test.

Hickory Hops 2013 - walnut pour, nice head/lace. Malt and silo nose. Big sweet malt with a touch of alcohol and big hops to finish. Nice barnyard touch! Full body and complex. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into tasting glass. Pours a nice dark dark amber color with an off white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is nice of dark fruit, toffee, maybe some chocolate sweetness. Flavor is initially sweet with some dark fruit, chocolate and malt that turns into a nice smooth bitterness. Mouthfeel is full with a not as much carbonation. Delicious beer.
