Draft at the Taphouse tonight.. Pours dark amber.. Thin... No complex maltiness really at all.. Really wanted to like this more.... For as dark as it was, I REALLY expected this one to have much more malty complexity or even a bit of melanoidin notes.. Very one dimensional. Too bad.

Bottle. A small, dense, beige head forms over a more or less clear dark amber to light brown colored body. The aroma is quite weak, with bready, caramel malts and a faint peat touch. Or maybe just smoke and not peat. It’s quite dry on the palate, with some alcohol warmth and a pleasant carbonation level. It’s bready and lightly grainy in the flavor, with a nice bitterness and some caramel. A tad boring this one, but far from bad and not foul. 141220

Made me want to kilt-up and get me jig on. A fine Scotch Ale, p’raps one of the best I have had. A brown ruby with an off white froth. Lots of peat, whiskey, butterscotch and toasted malts in the smell and taste. Delightful to drink with a finish that is a tad dry balancing out the smokey sweetness.

Red with thick white head. Drink this in a flagon. Sweet caramel aroma. Balanced malt flavor with a peaty finish. I drank this while singing Scots Border ballads. This goes well with the tough music of the border.
