Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing! bottle sampled @ RBBSG II Pours a deep, dark brown with a large, thick reddish brown head. Smell is huge caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar. The taste is big - similar to the nose with licorice and roasted malt on the back end. Medium/full bodied and nicely carbonated. DrewFace (970) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Huge, foamy pour, all foam. Dark brown with huge light brown head. Sweet, booZy molasses caramel and toffee aroma. More of the same in the aroma plus some roast character. Tasty. Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle. Glass. Nose is moderately malty with a note of olive juice and leather. Light oxidation, sherry and paper. Some earthy notes. Deep brown in color with a light tan head. Initially the beer shows off a very high amount of carbonation. Lots of dried fruit initially. Followed by more dark fruit with leathery and grapey notes. The extremely high carbonation is the one killer in this beer. I may have to leave it out over night and drink it flat in the morning but otherwise I am very impressed. Has held up great with age as I think this is at least 2-3 years old. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2011
On draft at Cigar CIty. Pours a mostly dark red-brown color with a tan head. Nose is deep sweet malts, maple flavor, some smoke, earth, and I swear I get some yeast/esters. Flavor is similar with lots of malt, hints of smoke, maple, and some yeast with a bit of malt loitering around into the finish. Interesting take on the style.

Looks good, black and lacey. Smoke in aroma. Yeasty taste, using saison yeast. Hop bitterness right there. A big beer, interesting to drink, though how much can I drink of it? joergen (29598) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2012

Pours a dark brown almost black with a two finger mocha head that disapates into a solid ring around my glass with decent lacing. Aroma is dominated by Belgian yeast, banana aroma with a bourbon, malted aroma in the back. Taste follows the nose, still dominated by the yeast. As it warms it becomes more balanced with the malt. Drinks smooth and hides alcohol well. It’s not outstanding but its good and interesting. I’m glad to have tried it!

Purchased on a recent visit to CCB in Tampa. Dunedin in a small town on the west coast of Florida that takes its Scottish ancestry pretty serious and of course it makes sense for two Florida breweries to collaborate. I’m not a huge fan of Scottish-Style Ales to begin with, but the extra ABV does give the beer some much need complexity As a one-off, this beer is a malty delight, but it could have been better if it was a little more balanced. The extra alcohol does make it a little too sweet, but a nice take on a Scotch Ale.
