Had this at the RB Pgh Halloween Spook-tacular Tasting/Drunkfest fall 2013, nice time at Hornydevilís place, thanks James & Michelle! And this bottle was courtesy of douglass88. Looks a little dark but not black. Its a little strong overall. Smells a little malty. Mild to the olfactory. Yes, noble like my friend doug and scott like me, Iím one quarter.

Growler. Clear deep amber tiny off white head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruit, dough and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and malty, caramel and fruit with very light smoke. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not too bad.

Sweet, bread crust, fruity aroma; a little bit of smoke. Similar flavors--but the fruitiness (cherry/apple) is much more prominent. Some caramel malt flavor, too.

From bottle. Pleasing nutty flavor and deep brown ale aftertaste. Tastes better several weeks after buying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Sweet bready nose, slightly nutty and biscuity.   Not as sweet on the tongue, remains bready and nutty.   A bit toasted, subtle campfire.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Plain finish, soft toasted malt, nuttiness, with a bit of sweet breadiness.   No real peat, and the subtle campfire is gone by this time.   Lighter example of the style.   Decent, but needs to be a bit more complexity.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Huge malt nose with some toast and toffee. The flavor is lots of malts and fruity yeast. A nice malty Scottish ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of the bottle from Bales. Pours a tan color with a coarse head that settled quickly. Smells and tastes malty without much hop characteristics. The taste is well balanced and makes this a good beer.
