16 oz. can from a trade with Sean & Amber. Dark copper in color. Nose is faint caramel and a light fruity type note. Flavor was weak nuts and caramel notes. The body of this brew is real thin. Toffee notes seem stronger when the beer was colder. I donít taste hazelnut or chocolate. For the first time in a long while I enjoyed a beer when it was colder rather them warmer. This isnít badÖ. Just boring.

tap at the brewery - Pours light amber-brown with an off-white head. It was a very distinct caramel malt aroma. The flavor is caramel malt and some mild, earthy hops. Itís light bodied and overall a little milder than Iíd like in a Scottish ale. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep mahogany hue. Inviting nose. Malt forward with rich elements of toast, peat and toffee. Wholesomely sweet, but not cloying. Hops are earthy and herbal, delicate and balancing. Not overly exciting, but tasty and well made.

Growler shared by PittBeerGirl (BA)!
Transparent red with a thin beige head that goes quickly. Cola nose with some sugar, light tea, caramel, and fruit. Vanilla-heavy flavor with more caramel, both contrasted by heavy carbonation and the thin body. These characteristics make for an odd experience, one neither rich and satisfying or light and refreshing.

Can from a friend. Pours deep brown with a frothy head. The nose is toffy and cocoa, no real hop notes to speak of. On tasting, quite chocolatey, rich and malty overall, Very clean, medium-low carbonation. Light bitterness. Pretty nice overall.

Draft. Darker brown pour with a beige head. Some peat and smoke come through in the aroma, but its faint. Very light Scottish ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a mostly clear, deeper copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy, slightly nutty toast and toffees with a touch of chocolate and earth. Flavor is similar. Nutty, grainy toffees up front with a touch of dark fruit and cocoa in the middle. Finishes clean with a touch of toast and a light earthy bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an easy drinking and clean beer. Not a whole lot of character, but enjoyable enough.

16oz can, purchased somewhere in Zionsville, IN. A nice auburn-brown pour, with a quick fading head in pale chestnut flesh. Aroma comes as a standard English/Scottish brown, nutty, woody and ester infested. Flavors are fine in this vein too. Caramel, toast, mild brown malt. Okay. This is a very drinkable and mildly nuanced brown.
