This bold Scottish Ale has a smooth complex malty body derived from English pale malt, roasted wheat, and crystal malts with just a touch of hops for balance. This ale pours a deep ruby color, has a sweet malty nose and layered plum and raisin notes.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
On tap at the Fall River Tap House. Pours a light brown with a light amber hue. Nice malty and caramel on the palate. A little thin bodied for my taste, but still pretty good.

DYCSoccer17 (3663) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 24, 2016
22 ounce bottle purchased at Granzellaís in Williams, CA. Bottled on 8/6/15. Aroma is sweet, floral, and peated. Lots of toffee in the nose, primarily. Moderately hazy cola-colored body with a very small, relatively weak light tan head. Starts with a sweet, sugary, toffee maltiness. Becomes pretty musty and a little swampy in the middle. Quite thin. Light toastiness later on. Definitely a lighter take on the style than I am used to. I prefer these to have more body.

marcus (9538) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Final Gravity. Pours dark brown with a thick beige head and a toasty malt aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor with some raisin and a slightly bitter finish.

bhensonb (14482) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Bomber from Final Gravity. Pours very dark ruddy copper (against strong light) with a beige head. Aroma of darker fruits over toffee/treacle. Med minus body. Flavor is a malty/toffee thing with dark fruits - for some reason it seems a very little bit smoky. The fruit aspects are nice, but (and I canít believe Iím saying it) it seems to need a stronger malt body. Drinks ok.

burleybrew (75) - - NOV 23, 2015
From a bomber. Low carbonation with a fairly clean aroma. Taste is dry/thin with too much hop bitterness for style followed by a roasty note. Good beer as a porter?, but lacking as a malt forward driven scottish ale.

raiderrob67 (10) - Redding, California, USA - SEP 14, 2014
22 oz bomber from Grocery outlet, Redding CA. $3.89. Pourís a deep garnet brown with a very small tan head that dissipateís quickly, very little lacing. Aroma is heavy malt, chocolate, dark fruitís no hop aroma at all. taste follows the aroma rich English malt, chocolate, dark fruitís, a hint of campfire/ roasted marshmallow, sweet with just enough bitterness to balance it out. finish is nice with a nice alcohol warming as it goes down. palate is medium to light. very nice beer for a cold winterís night by the fire.
