650 ml bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer for the share! Bottom of label reads bottled 3/28/2014, ok it has sat a bit... Dark mahogany color with very thin head in the snifter. Aroma shows caramel candy, oak like notes ( even without being put in a barrel) and light peat.
Flavor has a big toffee, caramel base with roasted nuts and shows a sticky toffee mouthfeel. Very sweet finish. Thought for an anniversary beer they would have gone more bold... Still drinkable even after this amount of time in the bottle.

Medium brown with a tan head. The aroma full of toffee and caramel with some dark fruit, brown sugar and a bit of peat. The flavor is very similar. The peat malt goes well with the sweetness from the toffee and caramel malt. There is also a bit of boozy raisin quality and some dark cherries. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer, as always, from Highland.

One of the best brews from Highland I have had. A nice super sweet malty tasting Scotish Ale. nice mouthfeel with a bit over carb. It would hve been awesome if they would have barrel aged this one. Nice malt forward warmness and ends with carb and creaminess.

Bottle @ home, thanks to wedgie for sending. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Slightly nutty, rich caramel, light bubblegum, banana, and pear in the nose with some grassy notes. Moderately high carbonation. Pretty high sweetness. Quite a bit of bubblegum and candy notes. Light smoke. Finishes a little sweet. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Bottle from Bottle Revolution. Ruddy brown pour with a pillowy and lasting off white head. Pleasantly malty nose with a bit of earth and peat. Medium bodied and easy drinking. Straight forward caramel malt, dark bread, a hint of burnt malt, earthy hops, a little spice. Fairly quick finish. A very solid brew without all of the gimmicks.

Shared bomber to snifters. Aroma of cucumbers. Which I suppose is what they’re going for. Flavor the same with some pepperiness and slight citrus from hops.

Pours a clear, very dark garnet that throws a nice light, mocha-colored head
Light malt aroma
The flavor is lightly sweet, not much else going on really.
A bit thin. These guys can do better. Disappointing.
