Braudog (6448) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2007 Dark red and quietly active with a giant head. The aroma is malty and cherry-toned. Likewise, the flavor is sweet and fruity, accompanied by a nice smooth body. Nice.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Dark red mahogany color with a light cap of head and a little lace. The aroma is full of nuts and fig with some roast & calamata olives and some malty cherry notes. The flavor is well balanced with some semisweet charactaristics, nicely caramelized. The finish is well rounded and balanced as well. This is a pretty good beer, some balanced complexities but nothing too outragous. Semi-session you could say.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2004
Bottled. Amber with a fine white head. Bitter hops sharpen a malt base. The palate and flavour created from the hops is more astringent then bitter.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Ruby color and tan head. Aroma reminds of whiskey and some fruit and woody tones. Flavor was good. Full and satisfying.

mribm (460) - Ocala, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2003
500 ml. bottle. Pours a deep copper brown color with a medium sized light tan head which quickly dissipated. The nose was of malt and caramel and a slight whiskey aroma. The flavor was primarily rich and malty with malts lingering in the finish. This is a good Scottish Ale.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2003
An excellent Scottish ale, Old Jock displays a complexity of maltiness in both aroma and flavor. So many different malt aspects make this a pleasure to drink.

Bov (12113) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 25, 2003
bright ruby-brown colour, few foam, cherry and malty nose, full-bodied, slightly oily with an acidic touch, nice late bitterness in a long fruity and malty finish - fresh, robust and balanced

Shag (2846) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Aroma is quite strong and very pleasant. Brownish appearance with a moderate head. Flavor has a little alcohol showing through with nuts and grapes being the primary flavors. Very nice beer and I really didn't enjoy Scottish Ales at first but they are starting to grow on me.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2004 Sweet and fruity (plums, grapes, or something like that...heck, I don't know!) aroma and taste with bitter finish.

I think I like the Black Douglas better as it is a bit darker and richer. This was more of a lighter amber ale take on the style. A little bit lighter and softer, with some different flavors coming through, lighter fruits and more hops but still very tasty.
