This had a slight sweet/tartness that isn’t usual yet I loved. Deep and malty. Easy to drink. Really a great brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours a rich mahogany (like Ron Burgany’s office) with a fair amount of off-white head. Aroma is tons of smoked peat. Taste is slightly sweet with some smoke and hints of dried figs. A decent beer in this style, but far from the best I have had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The label has a funny drawing of a pair tough highlanders on it. Surprisingly fruity aroma, with some yeast too. It is sweet and malty all right, like a good SA should be. The noticeably fruity flavor conjures up thoughts of sweet cider and even sweet wine. There are some nice complexities around the edges too. Good.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber. Poured medium amber with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up artificially-sweetened caramel and fruity notes with a definite sour kicker.. a touch smoky. The flavor was strong with sourness and apparent infection.. fruity and caramel sweetness at the core were overrun by the sours.. a pinch of smoked peat on the edges.. tacky sour fruits and residual sugars on the finish. Grainy and sour on the palate with lots of carbonation.. not good.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Dirty copper amber with thin head. Rich scent of caramel, toffee, bit of chocolate. First taste is overly sweet. Then there is a too strong sourness that melds into boozy marmelade. Something fishy in the tartan.
