3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured crystal-clear, garnety-amber with a nice cap of beige head.. great color. The aroma picked up sweet and toasty redder fruits, caramel, and a bit of smoked peat topped by some earthy notes and just a kiss of black pepper.. fresh, well-balanced, and really well done. The flavor found a touch of honey and molasses at the core to go along with smoked peat and redder fruit.. just enough fresh, dry bitterness on the edges.. finished with more fruit, smoked peat, and peppery alcohol warmth. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. great feel and flow, especially for the style.. very good brew.

Bonus beer from Atom. It pours clear copper with a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up molasses, prunes and a bit of earthy date fruitinesss. The smooth taste comes across similar to the nose with a mix of molasses covered prunes and earthy dates as well as some malty sweetness. This is smooth tasty stuff.

On tap. It is a simple beer. Obviously the nature of this series is to try to strike lucky with a one-off recipe. This one did not hit the mark.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate sandy head, frothy, litle lacing.   Somewhat of a sweetish tootsie roll malty aroma.   Very much a malty tootsie roll flavor profile up front.   Not really heavy, nor even that moderate.   Seems somewhat thin for a Scottish Ale.   Not getting any smokiness or peat in this one.   Straight up tootsie roll aroma and flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are barely moderate.   Finishes with a soft tootsie roll like malt flavor.   If this is 8.5%, well then I am Santa Claus!
