COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to the Scottish-Highlands, this beer offers a gorgeous garnet color joined by the aroma of ripe plums and freshly-baked biscuits. The rich, full-bodied texture reveals notes of roasted chestnuts and caramel in the smooth single-malt style brew. Balanced with just the right amount of hop character, this beer delights with crisp alcohol finish.

marv3mania (195) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is dark brown with basically no head. Aroma is very rich malts, both dark and caramel. There is also the scent of dark stone fruits, like plum. The taste is very similar to the aroma. There is a bit of alcohol taste present the whole way down. It feels pretty crisp, though a bit heavy. Overall, it’s not too bad, though not the best scotch ale I’ve had.

MrBeerFanatic (1069) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Dark malt amber with an imbued hue of dark red producing a creamy head. Aromas hay, caramel, light toffee, candy sugar/brown sugar and some toasty/nutty. Flavors light brown sugar, light toffee/caramel, lightly nutty. Lightly sweet with just a slight roasty aftertaste. Has some subtle complexities to it that make the style.

Bottle. Aroma of caramel, metal, toast and soap. Tastes sweet and toasty and a little bitter. Medium bodied but thinnish.

Dark ale with no head and little carbonation. It has a light malty taste with some smokey notes

Torn on this. Dark fruit and mystery but a faint metallic twang ruins the finish for me.

trentejgordon (8) - - AUG 7, 2017 does not count
Not much aroma. Doesn't have the harsh aftertaste of some Scotch Ales. Not my favorite beer type. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 It’s good, but I’m also not really impressed by it. It’s more similar to Barley wines I’ve had then scotch ales honestly.
