I had it from the bottle. The taste is sweet malt, bread, spice, and alcohol. Its smooth and has a hoppy hint to it. It stayed drinkable as it warmed. This was pretty good.

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.

Ar: Malty, toasty, and some vinous fruit notes. Ap: Clear dark amber - small light tan head with poor retention. T: Sweet malt up front - raisin and pear - dark caramel sweetness on mid-palate - finish is lightly hoppy with slight toasted notes. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is lightly sweet. O: Hearty winter ale, solid and drinkable with some nice malt and fruit elements.

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.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2013
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.

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.

leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Very bready aroma with caramel cereal tones. Deep red with just a few bubbles. Small bubbly mouthfeel with some deeper malty flavours and a citrussy zing. A little dull, although the flavours are good.
