3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with ruby tint and a nice khaki head that disappates to a ring with a wee bit of lacing. Nose is peat, malt, wood, raisin and booze. Taste is earthy malts, some caramel, booze and raisins. A bit watery, but crisp, tasty and a quite satisfying Scotch ale.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy brownish beer with a thin layer of off white head on top. Aroma is coffee, slight peat and coffee notes. Flavour is sweet, light alcoholic and has slight coffee notes. Peat is returning in the very finish of the flavor. Nice brew.

Bottle (12 oz). Dark amber with a small beige head and light lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, light smoke, peated notes and caramel. Taste is slightly sweet with peated malt, roasted malt and light smoke. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Ok Scotch Ale. Too roasted, but not too sweet which make it drinkable.

Not too impressed with this brew. Poors red and still has the classic Great Divide taste. I found this beer to be maybe too bitter. This was a one time buy for me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle. Pours dark brown with a red hue. Small tan head. Malty, smoky nose. Malty, smoky taste with a lot of sweetness. Too malty, too smoky and too sweet for me. Peat moss aftertaste. Labored through this one.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cellar temperature and into a snifter with little more than a bleating hiss as the cap came off. Much more effervescent than first expected it pours to lift up a loose, sudsy and sadly shortlived foam. The body of beer a radiant darkest ruby. Hazelnut husks, salted roasted peanuts, wood varnish, peat, spicy higher alcohol vapours, this aroma just does nothing for me. And the hits just keep on coming.... Rust, blood, grain husks and varnish/chemical. A lightly astringent finish with heat from the alcohol. Insipid to be brutally honest, nothing ties together. Sweet toffee front with a bready, sugary aftertaste. Filtered, I’m certain, to get that lustrous sheen it has also lost body and depth but of what it has that may not be a bad thing. Watery, light carbonation, gammy sweet as it warms. Not good at all! (12fl.Oz, Bottled 10/05/13, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
