3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s gotta be me, as I just don’t get a lot of flavor out of this. Poured perhaps a bit cold with a modest light tan head that soon settled and some lace. Color is a clear mahogany with some bubble trails. Aroma is very malty, toffee, caramel, hint of smoke, grain. Flavor’s kind of bland; not as pronounced as nose, some tang up front, only a suggestion of scotch ale. Body/carbonation are excellent. Finish is like flavor, a slightly nuttiness lingers and that’s it. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of darkly toasted, sweet malts, some faint dried fruit and toffee with hints of earthiness and black bread. Dark, clear red-brown in color with a lasting, creamy, off-white head. Flavor profile is malty, gently toasty and lightly bitter with suggestions of raisin, nut and earth, some lingering tangy fruitiness and suggestions of alcohol late. Smooth, lightly prickly and effervescent on the palate with a medium body. Really very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep ruby with a half finger of tan head that sticks. Aromas are overwhelmingly of dark fruits, mainly grapes and cherries, along with some caramel in the background. Taste is this same maltiness all the way down. Rich and creamy mouthfeel, drinks bigger than 7.2%. This is one of the best Scottish Ales I’ve ever had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle I picked up in Wisconsin on my recent road trip to Yellowstone. Pours a lightly hazed deep amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left a partial layer of foam with each sip. Pleasant aroma of malt and a bit of brown sugar. The flavor has ample malt with some brown sugar sweetness. Just a bit of toast in the flavor. Mild bitterness at the finish. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a clear, dark, reddish brown with a finger of frothy beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and dark fruits. The same in the taste, with a slight alcohol kick. Very good scotch ale.
