Pours cloudy dark brown, thin head. A wonderful malt aroma - sweet, hints of dark fruit. Heavy body, light hop bitterness & alcohol burn. Tastes lightly sweet or maybe not cloying, good maltiness. Not bad

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque dark, red brown color with an ample tan head. Smells of lightly spiced honey, some barnyard earthiness. Some light cereal, bready notes. Mainly sweet, but a lingering tinge of almost sourness, bitterness. Alcohol is reasonably present, medium to full bodied with some oiliness. Lighter carbonation. Pretty interesting beer, quite well done.

A big beer. Pours dark reddish brown with a lasting light tan head. Rich, malty, peaty flavor. Gets more flavorful as it warms up.

Shared bottle. Very solid beer. Candy sweetness and malty perhaps a little smoke or am I imagining? Brownish red in color. A bit thin but a very good beer nonetheless. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle at my buddy’s rehearsal dinner at The Madison Club. Pours a clear reddish-brown with a finger-plus of creamy off-white head. The aroma and flavor are both pretty sugary and sweet. Toffee, cookie, sweet bread, toasted sugar, nuts, and dried fruits. Light-bodied, with soft medium-high carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. I’m normally a little higher on Lake Louie stuff. This isn’t my favorite of their offerings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet for a scotch ale. Lots of hopping on the nose, but simply profiled as hop fruit, crystal malt, and a medium minerality.

Tap by app I’ll keep it short because I’m using my phone. Pours a deep amber not much head but a good Scottish ale. This has been my local tap beer of choice for a couple of years now.
