12oz bottle from Brian (dogfish120love).
Dark copper pour. Sweet, fruity, dark fruity is more than like it. Toasty, caramally and just a hint of bitterness, not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle pours amber with a nice solid cream head. Kind of weak caramel smell but it still is good once you can catch a whiff. The taste is some caramelized malt along with some hops. Very easy to drink and tasty scotch ale
Would buy again

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bonused bottle in trade from joepais (pastor). Thanks dude!
Pours a dark amber with a bubbly and short lived beige head. Smell is slightly thin, and smoky, peaty, and very much to style. Taste is subtly smoked maltiness, lightly hopped, and peaty. Light bodied and an easy drinking scotch ale. Not bad, but just not a preferred style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle). Sweet malty aroma. Color is reddish amber, with a very small head. Flavor caramelly malt, followed by a mild dryish finish. Not great, but better than some other choices from this brewer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from my Vermont vacation. Amber color wtiha small white head. This does not taste like a scottish ale to me. Aroma was fine with malts, honey and some hops. Overall the flavor was just too hoppy for the style. I dont expect this much hop flavor in a scottish.
