3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a dark brown with a short-lived tan head. Sweet dark toffee aroma with some fruity/boozy notes buzzing around in the background. Palate is much the same, not a lot of complexity but approachable and tasty. I don’t get much in the way of peatiness or barrel-aged character, but then again I’m not sure if I’m meant to. Finish is moderately sweet and mildly bitter. This wasn’t bad, but there are much better Scottish brews to be found here in Alberta that I’d put my money into.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out a very deep brown and red brew, foamy tan head that gives out some very slippery lacing. Good toasty aroma with some sweetness, hidden raspberry??, some almond, not complicated but nice. The taste is roasty with interesting bitterness, extra intense sweet nut, nice hops, nutmeg?, bark... yumyum. Touch of herb, some wood on the finish and a hint of alcohol. Good carbonation, smooth, medium bodied and a mild bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a cola-looking body beneath a sparse, ivory head. Aroma was mainly malt. Flavour started off not so good, but improved as things warmed up. At the end of it all, it was drinkable but hardly memorable. At 5% ABV, I wouldn’t call this a "strong" ale by any stretch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with red highlights, small short lived film on top. Mildly sweet malty aroma, some cream cheese and berry. Smooth caramel malt flavor some smoky peat (not as much as other 1488 beers). Very sweet after taste. Almond and raspberry also make an appearance. I liked it good beer.
