Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours deep amber color with a little bit of burnt brown in there as well. Upon pouring there is a little bit of foam on the surface of the brew. This fades rather fast leaving just a hint of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweet caramel mixed with a little bit of toffee. Other lightly roasted bready smells are there as well, with these being mixed with some light scotch. A hint of a earthy smell rounds out the total giving a rather decent and robust scotch ale aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet and malty flavor with a lots of caramel and toffee and some other tastes of toasted bread. These tastes all create the base of the brew and all remain relatively strong throughout. There is however, even more sweet that comes to the tongue, more in the form of a butterscotch taste, all while a bit of scotch and some wood come to the tongue as well. With all the flavor transitions that have occurred throughout, one is left with a rather sweet and malty, lightly scotched taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side for a brew of 6 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the style it is very nice as it accentuates the lighter scotch and wood, and really allows all the more malty flavors of the brew to soak into the tongue. Overall – A flavorful and rather tasty scotch ale that has a more drinkable abv. of 6 %. Big and sweet, but not so huge on the scotch booziness. Good overall.

DuffMan (7325) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle, purchased in Havre. Reddish copper, very lively beige head. Caramel and sour grains, not appealing to me at all. How in the hell did this piece of shit win any awards? Seriously? Oh God, I feel a nasty message from the owner coming my way again....

Pours a dark amber, with ample tan head. Aroma of malts. Very smooth and drinkable. Thumbs up, a very pleasant Scotch ale.

Bill Becker (462) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 6, 2014
It pours a deep reddish brown with a finger’s worth of foam. The nose is mild but I do get some caramel malt, grain, and a bit of fruit. And some smoke. Overall, I get a mixed bag of sweet and bitter in the taste. The fruitiness is kind of weird but I like it. Slight smoke..more of it and that seems to turn me off the style so I’m glad it’s slight. Hmm...I really have very few of the style that I have a liking for and this one gets not so good reviews. Oh well.

On tap at the Snow Lodge at Old Faithful, Yellowstone Park, WY. Clear, sparkling red-brown with a khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee, toast and chocolate. Taste of sweet malt, chocolate, toffee and toast with perhaps a hint of hops. Medium body and medium carbonation with a pleasant mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brow. Light brown head. It has hints of chocolate and caramel. Its not my favorite Scottish ale, but you could go way worse.

jake65 (2809) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Tap: Pours a brownish copper color with a large, fluffy beige head. Mild aroma is mostly malts, some faint dirty florals, and a little grass. Taste is lager malt, grass, and lightly earthy. Just enough florals to keep it from being one-dimensional. Nothing to get excited about.
