3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark, red-hued brown with a smooth, off-white head. The aroma has wildflowers, alcohol, and general bittersweetness. Smooth, light/medium-bodied mouthfeel. There are lots of flavors at work here: raisins, semi-sweet syrup, wild berries, alcohol, zest, light nuts, and toast. They are blended very harmoniously (it took a while to isolate those flavors).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish brown beer with a thick off-white head. Very sweet molasses and nut flavors and almost no hops. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. It’s got good quality flavor without being too complex. Enjoyable but not the masterpiece that Jacobite is.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice red-brown with a pleasant aroma. This si a quite nice beer. Thick with molasses maybe, it’s quite smooth and tasty. Something in the palate isn’t quite right. A nice beer that could actually be better with a little work.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is of malts and peat moss. Flavor is malty as well with lots datea and chocolate with a touch of butter scotch. Tasty and rewarding. Probably not as overwhelming of the sences like Jacobite but still has enough to make any beer geek excited.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep clear ruddy brown-orange pour, with a nice line of white head. Light buttery and nutty aroma. An almost lemony tart flavor, over a strong backing of caramel, toast, nuts, and a touch of green onions. Almost savory, maybe coming out of the hops. Very sweet, with hazlenut sugar finish. Complex. Finish is dry and a little tart.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly weaker body than the jacobite and not as spicey, which i see a good thing, however not the easiest to finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on botlle) Red,dark colour, no head. This batch was slightly oxidaded. The most neutral of the T. brews I´ve tried. taste iis dominated by burnt, coffeenotes and the alcohollash. Potent, but a bit flat brew. Still very dry and harsh finish for a scot.
