Ibrew2or3 (8660) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2007
The growler (courtesy hopscotch) poured out clear dark amber – garnet – brown with tan head and mild lacing. The aroma is mildly earthy, mildly smoky and contains some burnt malts. Nice yet mild. The taste starts with roasty malts and mild burnt malts that are only mild players in the flavor arena. Midway a mild smokiness pops up along with faint earthiness. Nice sessionable brew.

dchmela (3070) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Courtesy hopscotch. Growler. Pours dark and a little watery with a small head. Big dry chocolate aroma with a touch of single malt peat. Very smooth chocolate malt, roasted taste, finishes very nice with a good mouthfeel. Very nice.

3.3
boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Thin, mostly receding, light tan head. Translucent but very dark chestnut body. The aroma is roasty, with a majority of the sweetness chocolate, the minority caramel. Light English hops and minor alcohol noted. The flavor is also quite roasty. Sweetness is medium, bitterness low, astringency low, altogether pleasant but forgettable. Mild stale coffee is enveloped by smokey and roasty grain. Finishes lightly bitter, with lingering roast and caramel. Chocolate crumbles delve in and out of the sensory realm.

3.6
mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a dark brown with a small, off white head. Smells of sweet dark malts, maybe just a touch of a little smoke in there too. The flavor was alot of the same, but had an added little mintiness to it. Very nice and refreshing brew. Definite clove presence along with other spices. Pretty solid scottish ale. I liked the uniqueness of it.

3.4
Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Nice mahogany color, good lacing. Aroma is peat, leather, and burnt coffee. Taste is Smoke, malt with thin mouth feel. Subtle hint of cigarette ash. Good, but loses points for cigarette taste.

3.5
surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Dark reddish-brown pour with a short fine tan head. Nose is sweet and malty, with light caramel, roasty and peat notes. Flavor is malty with some peat and nuttiness, but fairly bitter with a dry finish. Palate is medium and carbonation is moderately low. Good beer.

3.6
Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - OCT 30, 2007
On tap at the Durham WBF. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Mild, smoky peat nose, sweet malt. Rich malty flavor balanced well with a decent hop bite and an even smokiness. Nice.
