UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 I had this after Arcadia Starboard Stout, so I might have been corrupted. This beer had the same smokyness, a nice dry finish, a good roasted malt flavor... it just lacked a little something that it's evening predecessor had. A good Ale though.

Medium brown color, medium head. A medium bodied ale. Malty, somewhat nutty taste. There is a smoky undertone. Good hop/malt balance. Mouthfeel is a little thin, slight off taste (undefined). Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Amazing scottish ale, and one of my favorite beers as well. Big malty taste with remnants of fresh baked bread lingering in the background. Great with roast chicken or turkey.

I dont know why it is, but some beers really seem to lose a lot as far as flavor goes when you pour them up in a glass. This is one such beer... tasted great in the bottle, but when I poured it up to score it for appearance... poof. Slightly yeasty/biscuit flavor. Mouthfeel seemed a bit thin for this style. Pretty good, but I think I will stick with McEwans. Wait a minute... 3.9% vs. 8%? I KNOW I will stick with McEwans.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2002
Dark amber to strong tea colour with a very fine bubbled creamy yellow lasting head. Lotsa roasted coffee malts and medium bitter aroma. Thinnish to medium body with a smooth textured medium bitter palate. Flavours are mainly roasted coffee malt and some faint caramel sweetness in the finish. Interesting enough, but I cant imagine myself drink more than one of these in a sitting.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Malty and crisp with a good balance of hopps. A very drinkable beer. Would be a better with a little more of a robust taste but all in all one to drink again. Nice reddish / copper hue with a white head.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Not too bad, a little mild in flavor, with just a bit of roasted grain malt and a mild hops presence. A very drinkable beer.

nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2002
Much better than expected. Hints of roasted flavor with lasting lacy head. A little bit of hops and a little bit of malt in the aroma. Scored a free pint glass to boot.

Decent beer. Not that wonderful. Average amount of hops and malt. Good amount of zing in flavor. Flatter aroma. Good appearance good texture.
