From the can into a Delirium snifter/tulip. Dark brown, amber edges, and a frothy tan head. Muted nose of softly sweet malt. Flavor of toffee, lightly sweet malt, earth, toastiness. Simple but tasty. Smooth, medium body. Perfect bbq on the beach beer. Very nice.

Can poured a dark ruby brown color with a nice tan head. The aroma was a bit roasty with a big malt backbone. The taste was much the same with some smoke and chocolate character. The finish was slightly sweet with some noticable alcohol.

Again the best beer in a can. An odd scottish ale, this beer is big on flavor and a bit sweet for some. Grainy mocha and chocolate flavored malts thoughout. Not as smokey or creamy as they claim. Super rich! Three cans are enough.

Can. Pours a dark brown body with ruby tinges on the edge and a large creamy brown head. Superb aroma - caramel, butterscotch, peat, roasted malt, and sugar. Great flavour profile is present too - toasty malts, nuts, a touch of smokiness, and chocolate. Alcohol is well blended. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Pours a lightly ambered brown tone that’s fairly dark with a light tanned head. Aroma smells of heavy carmalized malts, toffee, and molasses cookies. The flavor has a rich sense of a lot of what happens with the nose, a very heavy carmalized, and almost smokey malt, backed with chocolate, toffee, and molassesy raisin breads. Near the finish a light, but noticable alcohol presence makes itself known, which gently warms the brain. Hands down the best beer I’ve had out of a can, and one damn good scotch ale!

12oz can courtesy of CaptainCougar. Aroma: Sweet malt, strong breadiness, light chocolate and smoke. Appearance: Dark reddish-brown in color. Head was light tan, full, and creamy. Good retention and nice lacing. Flavor: Sweet malt with a touch of molasses. Chocolate and toffee. Again with the breadiness. Light anise and smoke. Tasty. Nice sweetness, but doesn’t finish super sweet. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Light alcohol warming. Overall: I have to agree. The best beer I’ve ever had from a can. Good representation of the style and very drinkable. Only issue is that carbonation seemed a little high. Besides that, very nice. Glad I have another of these to look forward to.
