Claymore will be available in six-packs and on draft through mid-April.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear dark mahogany with a 2 finger beige head that leaves great lacing. The nose is smoky peat, caramel and roasted nuts. The taste is toffee, smoked peat and dark fruits. Medium creamy mouthfeel. ABV is well hidden. Good Scotch Ale.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Clear, very dark crimson ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is all about hickory smoke and mild caramel with just a hint of chocolate. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and kicked-back carbonation. The flavor leans on the sweet side of balance and offers lots of smoke layered upon mild caramel, molasses and tawny port. Finishes sweet and a touch smoky, but balances out at the wee end. World class beer!

I kind of dig this scotch ale. They did a good job with this one. Im not a huge great divide fan, but they seem to be picking it u a bit. Lots of thick caramel malts in this. Very good flavor but i like a bit of an alcohol bite in my wee heavys and this didnt have it.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle picked up at Belmont Station. Reddish brown pour with a tiny tan head. Aroma of caramel and peat, slight smokiness. Flavor much the same, with the earthiness really coming to the fore. Pleasant example of the style and great label on the bottle.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 9, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured dark brown with no head. Very light nose. The front of this was very slight, middle picked up some sweet malt flavors. Not bad for this style

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2009
Earthy coffee and peat aroma, clean and inviting. Dark ruby brown, small tan head. Smooth, yet a lot of earth character. Intense, though gentle smoke. It’s a lot of beer, but not all at once. I love that smoke, it will keep me coming back.
