Dark reddish brown. A Very malty ale and full bodied ale. Slightly fruity nose, a bit roasty, mild and sweet, but most of all - malty. A well made tasty and true to style Scottish style ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours a rich, dark mohogany hue. Large, creamy/frothy white head. Mostly lasting with no lacing.
The nose is malty with heavy notes of caramel, butterscotch, Enlish toffee, butter, dates and toasted nuts. This Malt-Head would rate this brew very highly on aroma alone.
The flavor holds onto all the promise the aroma offers. Molasses, caramel, maple syrup, smoked peat, English toffee and buttery milk chocolate up front. Decently balanced with light pungency and a moderate bitterness on the backside.
Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and soft carbonation.
Long, lightly bitter, acrid and malty finish.
I love this Scotch Ale!
