4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent red. Aroma is sweet malts, and a little of that classic scotch ale peat... I guess thatís why theyíre referring to it as a Celtic Ale. Sweet malt, and a little peat smoked malt up front, and a long, complex, and very large finish with just a hint of bitterness. This is a very big beer considering the ABV. I like it a lot.
