This is an interesting beer. It has the hoppyness of a scottish ale along with the taste of a stout. Those crazy brewmasters, what will they think of next?

Great Scotish ale. Good toasted malt flavors, with a bit of toffee, caramel flavors in there. Still more of a fan of a good wee heavy, but I like the modest hop balance I don't get fro ma lot of Scotish ales. I will drink this again.

Pours a dark copper color with a small yellowish tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and some hops. Tastes of malt, chocolate and caramel. That description is dead on!

A perfect fall ale. Deep mahogany color. Malty aroma with some syrup to accompany. Full malt flavor with a hint of hop and a nice alcohol-kick finish. Another great from 3 Floyds!

Pine and scotch aroma, musty and nutty, full of vanilla and brown-ale type malt aroma.
Thick and creamy, turning to sweet vanilla and maple before a stinging scotch finish. Nice and roasty. Like a maple coffee creamer flavor with a bite.

Pours with no head, an opaque brown body with reddish highlights. The flavor is malty sweet, with some smokiness. This is avery enjoyable beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown with just a hint of red. Foamy white head with a couple small spots of lace. A sharp bite on the tongue at first but the swallow is actually quite smooth. Gentle carbonation. A bit on the watery side for the amount of malt present. Fruity with notes of raisin and gauze. A sticky vinous flavor lingers after the finish. I have mixed feelings about this. It's tasty enough but it lacks complexity and is a bit overly sweet for its thinnish texture. It just doesn't really grab my attention like I'd like it to.

Decent malty aroma and nice tan head. Flavor's got more caramel malt than many Scottish ales, hops very subtle. Malty finish.
