Reddish, brown with decent tan head. Fairly malty with a slight hoppy bite in the finish. The malty taste sticks in the mouth for a bit. Nice beer for sipping on.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice oxidized burgundy color. Smells ok, about average for a dark UK brew. Flavor is sweet, as expected with the color and high alcohol content. Also exhibits strong elements of peaty smokiness and malt. The "long dry finish" is sadly missing. Overall an ok Scottish traditional ale, but a wee bit overpriced.

Found this gem last week. $5.00 a bottle but well worth it. Nice rich maltiness with a slight smoky peat flavor. I do like this delicious ale and will be back to look for more! A fitting brew for my #400 rating!

Dark brown, pretty beer with large white head. Kinda cloudy. Smells aweful, very carbonated. Taste is weird, kinda meaty. Reading the desciption doesn’t surprise me that I wouldn’t like this because I’m a vegetarian.

Pours dark brown with a yellowish and tannish color head. Nice lace left behind. Nice looking beer.
Memorable aroma on this one. Very fruity and very juicy and very hoppy with mainly grapes and tangerines.
This was delightful. Flavors of spruce, pine, sap and bark with other citrus notes available as well.
