COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone of Arbroath has a rich, sweet malty aroma with mellow notes of plum and brown sugar. The mouthfeel has a "mineral-like" softness with highlights of deep caramelized malt derived from a 90 min boil which encourages caramelizing of dense wort sugars complemented by a subtle roast character that finishes with a mild acridity that pleasantly coats ones mouth. Coming in at a warming and subdued 8% ABV it will definitely ruffle many a kilt this spring.

Homer321 (4467) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Can from a trade. Poured into glass. A huge light tan on a murky reddish brown beer. Nose is immediately medicinal and phenolic. Moderate caramel sweetness in the nose. Taste is a weird caramel male bomb followed by a burnt coffee bitterness with metallic off flavors. This is horrible. Dumped.

Big bold scotch ale that has a thick oil like pour and mouthfeel. Nice alcohol percentage and taste of bog. Took me a long time to get through a six pack.
