Not as over-the-top, "not normal" as some of the other offerings. A bit thinner than some scottishes that Iíve had. That drinkability is what makes it more appealing to me. Very malty. Not sure if I am capable of describing this correctly, but the hopping creates more of a sensation of ozone than a flavor. Whatever it is, it plays off the maltiness pretty well. Nice deep deep red coloring. Seems to hold up fairly well in the bottle. Has a hidden kick to it.

There was a sour note to this beer that overpowered the maltiness. Maybe mine was off? In any case, good elements in the mix, but the overall result is not that great.

A pretty darn good Scottish. For Three Floyds, a bit of a "normal" deal. Very good beer, but nothing spectacular like the Alpha King. That being said, I am both a regular purchaser and embiber of this beer.

Deep mohagany color with a light tan head. Aroma of malt, peat and a touch of citric hops. Quite smooth. Malt flavor, with just a subtle peat interuption, dominate, yet there are some hops that do stand up to be be recognized. Iteresting and enjoyable version.

One of my all time favorite styles.This one is well done.Malt,malt and more malt,aroma is slightly sweet same in the flavor,not as heavy feeling as other scotties iíve had but very decent.nice finish that got a little to sweet if they get to warm up,but can be tolerated ok.Nice brew

Brown in color, the smell of malts is imediately present. Iím not sure I agree that there is a balance of hops & malt, I mostly taste sweet malts. Its a very tasty brew.

A really solid Scottish Ale. Starts off sweet and nutty and perfect but as the beer warms the malty sweetness becomes a bit excessive and by the end is just a little too sweet to make this as quaffable as it could be. Still, a very nice beer overall, just not one that I can drink too many of at a time.

Why is this not rated higher? Could it be the lower scores are from lads and lassies who just cannaí stand up to a huge caber toss of taste?! Itís musky, itís fruity, itís sweet, bitter, tart, and tangy! And itís bitter and sweet and musky again and tart and tangy again! A real highland fling (and could cause you to reel, if youíre not careful of the alchohol content). If youíre looking for ímellowí ...this is not the idea Iím trying to convey here.

This is the best damn Scottish Ale I believe I have ever laid my lips on. A tad sweet, smooth, excellent aftertaste. ;)
