3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
4 pack from a shop in the Bozeman airport. This is a clear deep, rich red. Looks more brown in the dim light. A permanent, off-white head forms. Malty nose with vanilla, oak, toffee and just a faint whiff of smoke. Sure it’s sweet, but not too sweet. Tastes earthy like tobacco with suggestions of wood and vanilla. So clean and full bodied.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Gil’s Goods in Livingston. Pours a nice, dark, ruby brown, with no real head. The aroma is toffee, caramel, and some earthy notes. Sweet and malty, with a bit of bitterness. Medium body, crisp, grainy, and smooth. This is a mild and drinkable scotch ale. Not strong nor aggressive, and no real peat or oak which is a shame, but nice and malty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a super dark brown with an inch of off white foam.
Smells of roasted malt with some smoke and chocolate.
Tastes of roasted malt, light smoke, chocolate, milk shake like flavour near the finish.
Creamy smooth mouthfeel, fairly light carbonation. One of the better beers of the style, given my lack of love for them.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
APPEARANCE - very dark brown, appears lighter brown around the edges. Head runs for the Scottish hills immediately, like Robert the Bruce when his daddy was still alive.
NOSE - slight malt, not much of the typical Scottish scent in the nose.
FLAVOR - malty character, slight bit of the Scottish flavor creeps in at the end of the sips as the pint warms up.
