I love this beer. Aroma is malty and peaty. Clear but dark as a scottish should be, tastes like it smells good carmel notes, smooth with some alcohol burn at the end. Overall great beer and one of my favorites from 3floyds

12fl oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Deep amber with two fingers of tan head. Almost looks like root beer. The aroma eludes me. Taste is very woody. Lots of sweet malt and just enough hops to keep it from being cloyingly sweet. It's pretty yummy. Thick palate, pleasantly sticky. The 7% alcohol is well hidden. Scarily drinkable. Thanks for this one Jeremy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour at home, Sent to me from a friend, thanks Jon. Very dark amber pour, kind of roasted aroma, very smooth beer, spice flavors, malt mouth feel, hops but not biter at all. Definitely one of the better Scottish style ales iv had.

Tap at bjs Easton. Dark brown pour with lingering off white head. Smoky malt nose and super smooth. May be best Scottish ale I've had. Bready and thick. A few of these and I'd happily be wearing a skirt, Scottish style.
