Not a bad winter beer, very malty and sweet, some spice notes detected, some hops but not very present, if you like very malty sweet beers give this a try, pretty much what I expected from Brooklyn, nothing fantastic though.

Pours a dark golden color with an off white head. Aroma and flavor of subtle malt and spice.

12oz bottle. Pours dark red-brown with a small white head. Mainly caramel and some spices, maybe nutmeg on the nose. Initial taste is sweet fruit with lots of malt. Also pick up some brown sugar and an assortment of holiday spices. Lively carbonated with a syrupy texture. Medium to full bodied. As it warmed and I got to the bottom of the glass I could detect some alcohol in the finish. A nice beer during the cold months.

Dark amber color with a very light toffee and citrus aroma. Some citrus taste, including oranges and grapefruit. a little to much spices i think.

i find these scotch ales fall between two stools really. not a bitter not a stout. this one pours a really deep red almost brown. big bubbled head that receded quickly. very sweet taste: figs and dark fruits. leaves a cloying sticky sweetness in the mouth.

The nose is a little messy... caramel, malts, roasted malts, coffee, BBQ sauce, soy sauce, molasses, and even some smoked wood. But Im intrigued. Unfortunately, the taste delivers little more than a very average ale with malty bitterness and a bit of sugary sweetness. Mouthfeel is weak, with a thin-to-medium body and shy carbonation. This could have been better.

Nice Scottish ale without a lot of character, but a who lot of drinkability. Decent selection for a holiday party, Id call it a safe bet. Balanced and nice, but nowhere near perfect.

I've amber color and a bit fizzy in the palate. Nice taste but I've had much better of this style. - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark amber body with a thin white head. Butterscotch, earthy hops, raisins, sweet malts. Just okay.

Taken from old notes. Nose had almost a sourness to it. Not sure if bad bottle or not. Taste is sweet malts. Finish is dry and sweet.
