3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 1/31/12 from a bottle. Pours clear amber with an average khaki head that leaves thin lace. The nose is lightly smokey caramel malt with toasted nuts and a hint of bitterness. The flavor is lightly smokey caramel, toffee, and maple, with some bread and light bitterness. The body is medium plus with lively carbonation and a long smoked toffee finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. The pour is a muddy brown with a small ring of head that vanishes quickly. The aroma is very malty. There is a strong toffee presence and there isn't a whole lot going on there. Strong dark fruits all throughout. I love the aroma. The flavor mimics this. There is the sweetness and the dark fruits. The mouth feel is thicker and syrupy and with a light carbonation gives it a little velvety feel. The aftertaste is lingeringly malty and smooth. This is a very good scotch

Single from total wine. Smoke and peat and unfortunately I can’t get much past that. This one is not for me but I’m sure the smoke guys will get all over it.

The beer that taught me the difference between a Scottish ale and a scotch ale. Dark amber full bodied beer. I am rating it a 5 simply to try to counter the ridiculously low rating that it has on this website
