12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium maroon brown with a small off white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of toasted sweet malts, caramel. some pine resin, some fruity hops, and some mild peaty smoke. Taste is of toasted sweet malts, piney hops, dark fruits, caramel, some toffee/bread pudding, and some smokey peat notes. Has a medium body semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, sweet but still somewhat bitter, medium finish. overall, a good winter beer and excellent Scottish Ale.

A wintery Scottish that is splendid. Definitely getting all the Scottish notes, with a bias towards malts considering its winter heritage. Recommended.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 12oz bottle. Brown and Tan mix. Nothing stands out from the nose, just malts and hop mix. Roast and earthy flavors, ash, very dry in the finish. Not impressed. It lacks needed sweetness.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert, AZ. Amber and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of dark malts, spices, light caramel, cinnamon and allspice. Similar flavor, adding a mild to medium hop bitterness. OK.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a nearly clear amber sort of copper body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up roasted malts, toasted bread, some spicy notes and mild sweet dark fruity esters. The taste starts with malts, roasted malts, big roasty nuttiness and then some modest spiciness. Wow. This has lots of nuttiness going on, it’s pretty nice.

Stew41 (1757) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2014
A little lean but this is well crafted. Dry roast, small doses of spice and plenty of fizz (for the style). Great lift of milk chocolate on the nose. A light touch for the style.

Light retention and good lacing. Smells of caramel, roasted malts, nutmeg and spices. Tastes of toasted malt, caramel, nuts and dark fruit. Bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
