3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Small off-white rim over deep brown beer with orange reflections. Chocolate, mocha, and berry or plum connotations. Sweet chocolate, coffee-and-chocolate base, mocha, sweet dark malts. Medium bodied and very slick. Better than the sum of its parts. Convincingly Scottish, but weak for an 80/-

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from the brewpub. Clear auburn brown with a small beige head, fair retention. Aroma of toasted malt and grain, some caramel, light smoke, and a little fruity yeast. Flavor follows suit with a little bit of vanilla added. Definitely malty, but not too sweet at all--the toasted malt is dominant enough over the caramel, and the prickly carbonation helps toward the semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 2. Medium body with light to moderate prickly carbonation. Easy drinker, tasty enough.
