Nice color and carbonation, but it tastes like someone dumped a bunch of soy sauce into the keg. A common problem with this style. A reformulation would be in order.

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.

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.

On-tap, this pours a medium brown color with a slight brown head. The aroma is malty, with a hint of booze. The flavor is rich with malts. Hints of oak and fairly dry. Finishes crisp and clean.

Tap at DLD 15. Dark pour. Very full body. Roasty nose. Tastes pretty hoppy -- dry hopping overpowers the slight scotch malt character underneath.

Being a Florida boy and living in Indiana now (for the time being), itís a pleasure to be able to try this beer. Pours a solid brown with an inch of tan head that retains well. Nose of grains and mushrooms. Big flavors of nuts, syrup, raisins, and toasted wheat bread. Soft/medium carbonation and medium/full body. This is not one of my favorite styles, but this is pretty dang tasty.
