Bomber. Rich caramel malt aroma with earthy, hoppy undertones. Pours opaque ruby-red with a light, tan head some lacing. Sweet caramel malt with a good note of earthy hops. Finishes dry with a slight, hoppy bite. Good scotch ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a Scottish ale? More like brown sugar than toasty barley. Not a bad feel to it, but the taste is just different than expected. Not bad, just different.

BlackHaddock (3185) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
May 2010: 22 Fl oz bottle drank at our B&B in Springdale, Utah after a day walking in Zion National park. The beer was purchased at a Lee’s Discount Store in Vegas and transported to Utah for reviewing at leasure. Poured into two stemmed goblets the beer looked a picture. Deep amber body, off-white, creamy foaming head, which left some good solid lacing as the beer sank down the goblets. Malty biscuits/molasses/toffee and a hint of smoked peat were the smalls I picked up. The sweetness from the aroma was evident in the first sip, but a hop bite and bitterness soon came along to remind you this wasn’t a childs drink. I thought it gave off a richness and warmth which helped my aching bones to recover for the next days hiking.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Clear burnt orange, on the darker side.   Moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Biscuity nose, faint campfire, peat, smoke, charred wood... very faint.   First thing I notice is its not malty enough, not meaty.   Feels like more of a Bock type beer than a Scottish.   Not really getting any peat, charred wood, or campfire on the tongue.   Its a rather dirty biscuity flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are lacking, at least for a nice Scottish.   Not watery, just not enough body.   Has a bit of a grainy malt finish to it.   Not a bad beer, but very ho-hum and not caliber I would have thought for a Full Sail brew.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear dark orange color. The head was thin and light brown with decent retention. Big malty nose akin to caramel-soaked raisins and dates with a dash of brown sugar. Medium to full body and slightly sweet with mild bitterness. Molasses, caramel, and earthy hop flavors.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bomber pours clear dark ruby amber with thin tan head. The aroma offers up loads of prunes, cherries and red apples as well as some caramel, spicy yeastiness and Belgian candy sugar. The taste is similar with plenty of cherries, prunes and ripe red apples. These notes are tempered by caramel malts, some malt roastiness, chocolate malts and some biscuit. I also get a mix of earthy hops and a touch of spicy hops that help round out the experience. This is complex and bold in flavor. If there was a touch less in the ester department and a bit more integration this would be truly dynamite.

TheEpeeist (3187) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
22 oz bottle, 2009. Clear cola with a smooth beige coating. Nose is caramel, sweet smoke and dates. Soft and rounded medium body with prickly carb. Taste is toffee, malt, slightly burnt sugar and grass. Hoppy for a Scottish ale, even after a year or so, but it works well.

DuffMan (6172) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep amber brown with a thick tan cap. Aroma is sweet dark toffee, earthy old wood, brown sugar, and caramelized bananas. Sweet toffee flavour accented by earthy tones, wood, and vague fruit (not the banana hinted at in the aroma...plums maybe?). Tasty.
