3.1
drinksalot (7) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2004 does not count
Dark copper in color, a little bit on the heavy side. Malty fruity nose. We can finally get it in Georgia no more late night runs to the Tennessee border

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
Reddish brown coloured. Some vinegar notes in the aroma. Slightly sourish flavour. Smooth mouthfeel.

Chestnut color with a white head. The taste is sweet rather plain and smooth. Light fruity notes.

Wow. Thanks to the manager of The Old Toad for this one. I guess they found this one somewhere and called it "cellared" for 5 years. I’m not complaining. Aroma: amazing, very complex, with notes of apricots, wine, sour grapes, cherry. Flavor: Lots of flavors here, speaks to being aged for 5 years, very complex, sweet malt, sugary fruit, smokey scotish ale. I was damn impressed.

3.7
Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Large frothy head, rapidly diminishing to a nice sheet of lace. Clear reddish amber in colour. Nose is lightly malted with a bit of fruityness (cherries?). Flavour is malty, slightly acidic with dried fruits and some subtile anise really comming through in the aftertaste. Alcohol is nearly absent except in the finish. I would have expected more malt from the Scottish, regardless, quite a good drinking ale especially with this abv.

3.3
Braudog (6836) - 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.

3.7
BückDich (5477) - 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.

3.2
Spiesy (2337) - 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.

3.5
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.

3.3
mribm (462) - 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.
