Our Scotch-style ale, named from Norse mythology, combines the heritage and tartan of our brew team. The roasted barley and chocolate malt lend a bold flavor to this delicious dark beer. Its increased hop level is a modest departure from a true Scotch-style ale. We hope you agree this is a beer worthy of the name Tasgall, "Cauldron of the Gods."

Zero Head. Frothy khaki atollAntique brown body. Decent looking brew. Nose is too faint tyo detect. Roasted barley. Round and fruity. Vinuous and slightly smoked ham. Beer explodes in your mouth. Cocoa and chalk. Whole milk . YEast is especially chalky and smooth. This beer really reminds me of their porter. Maybe a tad less sweet and slightly smokier. Aftertaste is quite similiar. Good beer. G-rat

On tap. Has a mild scotch aroma and a dark red appearance that is as close to black as you can get. Has a powerful choclate type malt with almond undertones. Finish is smooth and the alcohol is not apparent.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Dark, dark brown coloring with a medium off-white head that laced onto the glass very nicely. Very malty aroma. Taste was big, rich, very hearty, with a slight warming as it went down. Highland never ceases to amaze me, and I’m glad they are no longer restrained by that stupid 6% law. Well done!

on draft at barleys taproom in asheville. pours out dark brown in color with a small brown colored head. smell is malty, chocolatey, and some subtle hints of alcohol. taste is smooth, very rich and filling, and roasted tasting. this is a really good beer from a style that i am not too keen on, but a brewery that is by far my favorite in NC. i am glad to see that these people were the first to release a high gravity beer in our state which has recently lifted the cap on the % beers can be. awesome beer guys, cant wait to see what else you guys will come up with.
