the aroma is that of burnt chocolate and freshly grounded coffee. the appearance is a amber color with a medium head and alot of lacing. the flavor is that of coffee mixed with chocolate and a hint of carmel. sits very well on the palate with a smooth finish. i will buy this again

Subtle malt nose. The palate is sweet with flavors of honey, caramel, and brown sugar. The beer finishes like a tawny port. Sweet and nutty.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2003 My how things change. I had a few of these last night because I was just really wanting some and I saw the Munster brewed bottles. This is a great beer. Sticky sweet malts of caramel, raisin, toffee, chocolate, a hint of smoke. This is a tasty, flavorful Scottish ale and one of my favorites in this style. It's too bad I had to be so harsh before. 9/6/2002: 2.9 Light brown color, sort of malty nose. Sweet, smooth. Some soft fruit--plums, etc. This was far thinner and lighter than I expected. Really, a bit disappointing.

Not bad for a US brewrey. Its missing the strong malt and peat smoke Iíve tasted in other scotch ales. The hop finish was unexpected in this style and, in my opinion, threw it off.

a light shade of true "bottle brown"-- which is to say brown with a yellow accent. a wisp of haze within that could pass for fog on the glass. the head sleeps if ignored, but gets feisty with a swirl. maltiness of course greets the nose, along with any ripe reddish fruit, plus alcohol and a crust of bread; imagine swabbing up a spill of peach schnapps with your woolen tartan. aye, thatís the smell. sweet, smooth, robust, leaving no part of the tongue unattended. highly reccommended for all clan gatherings and castle sieges.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2003 Another good Scottish Ale. Too many of these are too strong. This one has a nice medium amount of hops and a nice smooth malt flavor.

This copper colored beer poured with a small tannish colored head, leaving no lace as I drank it. It has a very sweet malt nose that invites you to take a sip. I am a hop lover, but I feel this beer has too many hops for the style. It isnít bad, however the hops linger in the aftertaste, when Iím expecting the malt to come through.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 12 oz bottle pours dark amber almost brown with a huge foamy clingy off white head that leaves a sticky lacing in my pint glass, has a sweet fruity, bready and citrusy hoppy aromas. Nice sweet fruity cherry, caramel and vanilla flavors, nice bitter-sweet finish, medium to full body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel, hoppy for the style, but what is not from this brewery.
