Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2004
The aroma is slight, but sweet with notes of alcohol. The color is an opaque red with a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is weird: sour with powerful notes of alcohol and somewhat lesser notes of coffee. The mouthfeel is sticky. The alcohol is too pronounced.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2004
Bottled. Mahogany colour, no head. Aroma of green apples. Sweet and very woody. Syrupy, clean, mouthfeel. Malty but mellow. The woodiness is nice, but it’s extremely one dimensional. There’s nothing under this kilt.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2002
dark ruby-brown colour, few head, fruity aroma, very malty, sweet, buttery with a long fruity (apple ?) finish

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Crystal clear, deep mahogany ale with a light brown head. Poor retention. Decent lacing. The nose is of beef broth, smoke and port with a hint of bacon grease. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Astringent, bone-dry finish.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Aroma is of medium strength, pleasent with hints of plums and hops, and quite sharp. This beer poured a dark brown with slight red hue. Taste is spicy and hoppy, with undertones of caramel syrup. Medium body, right amount of carbonation. Finish is mild.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Dark ruby brown color with a medium light tan head. Thin and quick lacing. The aroma is smoky malt and caramel. Medium-bodied with a big malt profile, and very little else in the flavor aside from a hint of caramel. The finish is sweet and lasting. Kind of a one-trick pony with the malt but it is smooth and drinkable.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 16, 2003
Creamy, medium bodied. Slightly sweet mixed with darker malt. Full flavored, decent brew.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Head is initially small, fizzy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is clear dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of DMS, corn syrup, and solvent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. One of the worst so-called Scottish ales I've ever had.

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle from spring 2004. Pours a ruby brown color with a thin head. Smells of sweet smoked malts, very scotch whiskey-ish.Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Taste is a weak smoked malt sweetness with a bitter red wine flavor to finish. Not a bad beer , but not a good scotch style. july 2004

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Dark brown/ruby color with off-white to tan head and lots of lacing. The aroma has some bright caramel, not sweet but a little more astringant. Lots of chocolate type malts with some bourbon flavors coming into some flavors. The malt profile is light and sweet but finishes a bit astringent. Very earthy!
