Mahogany in color, Rook has a bold malt character with woody notes. Peat smoked malt creates a distinctive earthy Scottish flavor that complements English toffee notes. Ideally served at 50 - 55°F.

On tap at Live Oak. Brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is hand rolled tobacco cigarettes. Taste is super peaty, maybe a little chocolate, and super peaty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured a light reddish-brown with a white head. Taste of smoke, ash, rubber, and burnt malts. Medium carbonation medium body. WAY too smoked for the style. This wouldn’t even be a good smoked if it was in that style either.

Faint to non-existent aroma. Dark brown sugar color. Medium to light weight with typical carbonation. Flavors were light at best. You could tell it was a Scotch ale but the caramel sweetness was light as was the slightly burnt and woody character. Not terrible but didn’t stand out either.

Poured a medium to dark garnet. No head. More hops in the mouth then should be for this style. This brewery is very hit and miss. This was a miss.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with ruby hues and beige head. Aroma is very peaty with a hint of smoke. Flavor is a smokey, peaty bomb....as to this day, the strongest I have encountered with notes of toffee and malt in the back ground, has some sweetness. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, I really dig this beer!

Bottle from Errl. Thanks! Pretty mahogany brown. Peaty smoke dominates nose. Astringent peat, honey, malt. Interesting, much smoker than I expected. Different but not great representation of the style.

thirdeye11 (5958) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Draught at Jack Mac’s - cloudy ruby brown, fine offwhite almost pinkish bubbles. Nose of raisin, sweet malt, light peat, brown sugar, and bits of green apple. Taste is very bandaid forward, peat, smoke, sweet malt, most of the good characteristics from the nose, palate linger is also a bit undesirable.

Deep brown with a decent sized cream colored head. Aroma is of chocolate, peat, campfire, light ash, and toffee. Taste is of peat, smoke, leather, roasted malt, light vinegar, and caramel.

Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of smoke, toffee and dark fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of smoke, toffee and light dark fruit with a smooth lingering smokey finish.

Mora2000 (6136) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of peat malt with a hint of dark fruit and a lot of toffee. The flavor is fairly similar. There is some cherry and grape notes as well as some peat, smoke and toffee. Woody tasting. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
