This puppy was grrreat. A dark brew... you’d have to pour it out of the can to find that out though. A true scottish brew- mel gibson would give a nod. Pours with a creamy almond head and the laces are true.

Part 1 of my tribute to Braveheart. Malt, malt and more malt...hints of coffee and wisps of smoke peek through. Full and fat on the palate. Damn, I like this beer in a can...

Best beer I’ve ever had from a can. Strong, earthy aroma of malt, carmel, and chocolate. Smooth drinking at 8%, leaving flavors of coffee and chocolate combined in a malty mouthfeel. Love this beer.

My friends are getting worried, because my favorite beers are from a brewery that cans its beers. What a ballbuster of a beer! Pours dark and thick with minimal head. Smoky peat in the nose, very dry. If you like single malt scotch, you will like this beer. Wonderful complex flavor with nice malt to smooth things out. While the pale ale from this brewery is the more popular beer, this is a really tasty alternative. Prost!!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
12 oz can. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep mahogany color, with a thick, creamy, tan head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with lots of big sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and light smokey aroma. The palate is rich and full, with lots of good sweet and caramel malt flavors, paired with light, peat smoked malt flavor. This beer finishes with more excellent sweet and caramel malt flavors up front, then ends with a warming, soothing, burn that lingers. Excellent example of Scotch Ale. A wonderful after work or diner beer, and a great beer to just sip and savor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can. Deep auburn brown with an initiallt thick head. Aroma of malt, toffy, tootsie roll and light smokiness.Medium bodied with medium to low carbonation. Very malty and sweet. Chocolate malt stands out. Overall not a classic Scotch Ale but a decent brew anyway. Especially from a can.
