Dark brown with an ok head. Nicely malty with a goo bit of peat. Dark brown sugar and molasses. Seemed a little thin though. JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Poured a dark reddish brown. Huge layer of tan head that recedes to a nice ring. Aroma is some smoke, nuttiness, scotch, and molasses. Flavor is sweet, molasses with some honey. Light amount of smokiness mixed in with some scotch and caramel. Creamy texture. No bite at the end, but is very pleasant to drink. ALLOVATE (3088) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2005
Stumbled into the bar of the Moon & Sixpence, Perth, for a warming pint to kill off the cold and noticed this one freshly stocked in their fridges. Poured into an English pint glass, a deep ruby reddish-brown body settled, quite clear, with a short steadfast beige head that left a light amount of lace. Only caught a whiff of bready yeast and toasted malt before my friends drowned me in cigarette smoke. Deep, rich and soothing flavours of ripe dark fruit, raisins and prunes, with a balance of lightly toasted malt and bready yeast, which follows through to a lightly malty, bitter and dry back and medium length fruit-cake malty swallow. A nice sipping beer in small portions, sometime between pints of 60/-at any pub lucky to serve it. Pint after pint, a nice drop that got better as it warmed. Sweet as!!!

Clear brown coloured with a medium sized beige head.
Malty aroma with notes of fruits and berries.
Sweet malty flavour with notes of dried fruits. JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2005
It had a roasted malt aroma but the rest of it seemed a bit too thin for its moniker. I felt it was a bit too much on the wee watery side but malty enough to make it en enjoyable beer. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
Dar reddish colour with a big beige head. Light roasted malty aroma with a dried fruit sweetness. malty and fruity flavor with hints of caramel. LawofCreation (8) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2005 does not count
Bottled. Poured out deep amber with an off white head. Going down it was like chocolate with caramel kinda....but not overpowering like Turbodog. It was ever so slightly carbonated, so much that I had to hold it up to the light to even tell, and it finished off so smoothly that I’m thinking of going into the business...hell I’m scottish and this is scotch ale...I can’t lose...sike. Anyway, back to reality, this beer is awesome as well as Buster’s in Memphis where I get all my big beers. Without them, none of this could have happened...<blows kisses and such> But I digress, I would definitely purchase and or drink this Scotch ale again. Later SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Dark ruby/brown. Nice, thick, off-white head. Malt and smoky scotch aroma. I love scotch, haven’t had too many scotch ales, this will be the first I’ve drank with the intention of rating. Sweet malt and smoky scotch all the way. Full, smooth body with a nice level of carbonation. Very good.
