3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brown color with a medium light brown head. Mild aroma, some malts detected, maybe some molasses. Overall, not much going on. Maybe some sweet dark fruits in there too. The taste is definitely quite malty, with just a touch of some hops in the background. A little bit of sweet cinnamon and spice shows up in the finish. The aftertaste was sweet, dark molasses and a slight bitterness. Decent brew, nothing exciting for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, dark cola color. A small, bubbly, off-white film settles to a swirly, wispy film with a bubbly edge. Minimal, sudsy lacing drapes itself about the glass. The aroma is reminiscent of flat root beer. Toasted caramel, molasses, oak and vanilla comprise the bulk of the nose. A subtle fruitiness adds a layer of complexity. The flavor is slightly different. Sweet caramel meets overly ripened dark fruits, and a touch of woodsy oak and vanilla. Medium bodied, with a fairly still mouthfeel. A touch of bitter hops bite down at the end, as the beer fades into a quick finish. Decent beer, but I had higher hopes for this one.

Great taste: fruity and malty but left a slight bitter aftertaste. Good for a Scottish ale. Prefer Dutch ales but this was good.

Bottle. (RBNAG 07) Pours a clear, dark brown with a beige head. Quite sweet and malty aroma with a hint of peat. Caramel, roasted malt and some dried fruits in the aroma, not to forget the peaty notes. Quite sweet and malty finish. Full to medium mouthfeel. A nice and peaty beer I must rerate some day. (071103)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Utobeer. Nose of cream, malt, molasses, dried fruits. Aroma reminds me of a Belgian beer especially with the hint of alcohol. Pours a clear copper coloured beer with barely a head. Taste is predominantly that of alcohol, malt, vinuous, fruits and a moderate sweetness. Also, notes of bread, cloves and spices. Not bad but I was expecting more.

Bottle: Dark brown with a reddish tint. Aroma is malty and sweet, little bits of nuts. Flavor is more malty with light nuts and toffee. Small bits of dark fruit. Pleasant, but forgettable. Damn, I passed on the Jacobite because I thought this was the better of the two at the time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cloudy brown pour. Sweet malt, does smell a bit like malt vinegar. Tastes is not so much, but malt and sweet malt. Some raisin, woodiness. A bit thin throughout. I guess I was expecting a little bit more of an old ale, so I was a little dissappointed. Not bad, but for 6 bucks, I could have found something better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark copper with a little off-white head. Light aroma of malt, toffee and dark fruit. Quite dry mouthfeel, a bit thin and watery with a little bitterness on the finish. I found the flavour to be also a bit on the mild side, maybe I drank it too cold but there were noticeable malts, a little peatiness and hints of sultana. Also there was a bit of metal in both the nose and the taste. Drinkable but not as good as the jacobite ale.
