Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 20, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Dark brown hazy color, nearly braced aspect with a foamy head of long duration. Very burned woody aroma, notes of braced malt, alcohol, roast cask, barrel and ash. Intense woody and alcoholic taste, ashed and dried mouth, medium smooth body with a long bitter end.

Oginme (46) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 28, 2013
pours a nice clear red color with a smallish head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is caramel malty with grassy, floral/herbal hop nose dominating quickly. taste was initial sweet caramel and finished with moderate spicy hop bitterness. medium light body, moderate to high carbonation. It’s an OK drink and safe bitter style, not at all like the scottish ale suggested on the label.

Dark mahogany body, white head. Bit flat malt aroma, nuts bad butter. Some dull fruitiness. Metal and roasted candy.

chuckstout (264) - Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2013
I imagine this was pretty good, but my bottle is highly oxidized. Nose of faint cherry, biscuit, flavor of rich biscuit, caramel. This seemed to be bottle conditioned.coffee,

A good Red Scottish Ale. Easy to drink. Fairly hoppy on the nose; a bit fruity on the taste; overall a good beer and quite enjoyable.
