Serving: Bottle. It pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a tan head. The nose is pleasantly malty with notes of brown bread, caramel, and a light earthiness. Medium to full bodied on the tongue. A mix of toasted bread, dark caramel, perhaps a touch of chocolate covered nuts, and it finishes with a slightly earthy bitterness. Nice brew.

Nice malty nose and a tight head. Lots of grain and a little bit of hops makes it balanced and sessionable.

Chocolate malts, roasted barley, coffee grounds and a roasty/hoppy aftertaste. Worth checking out!

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes nutty, like burnt toast, roasted malt, tobacco, and bitter coffee. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like nuts, tobacco, roasted malt, and toast.

I thought this was a solid Scottish ale. Not much nose.. Hints of smoke and peat. Flavors are all malts with a bit of a watery finish. Nice chewy mouthfeel with dark fruit and peat.
