COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for a medieval Scottish sword, Claymore Scotch ale is a tribute to the legendary "Wee Heavy" beers of Scotland. A malty, deep-ruby-hued ale, it features a generous amount of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile and a subtle warming character, at 7.7% alcohol by volume. Claymore will be available in six-packs and on draft through mid-April.

astanford (52) - California, USA - FEB 9, 2017
caramel, slightly roasty, nuts, brown, minimal head, light sweetness, medium body, oily feel, minimal carbonation, not a very long finish. Felt very light for a scotch ale.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and some caramel. The taste is very close to the nose. An excellent beer.

Sigmund (7818) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2017
355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.7%. Very dark brown colour, thin beige head of poor retention. Malty aroma, some caramel and a hint of wood, but a bit anonymous. A faint hint of smoke. Malts, caramel and wood in the medium sweet flavour too, minimal hops. Not a bad beer, but this is not my favourite style.

ozzy70 (1264) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Draft at the Casual Pint, Omaha. Pour was dark amber, small off white head. Aroma was malts, molasses, caramel. Taste was sweeter, malty, caramel, toffee, and nuts.

3.3
Gurthnar (6171) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle at a tasting. Easy drinking black ale. Not much in way of roasty dark malts though, mostly colour. Overall very easy drinking, with rathe thin body.

uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Dark, ring of tan head. Very malty aroma, also dried fruits. Oily texture. Warming.

3.9
lello4ever (1168) - ITALY - JAN 3, 2017
Marrone scuro, schiuma sottile beige cremosa. Note di malto, tostatura, caramello. Al palato malto dona dolcezza, birra avvolgente e cremosa. Carbonazione media. Ottima scotch.

3.6
larsniclas (7187) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2016
Draught at BAJT Sweet, vinous with toffee and fudge in both aroma and flavour.

2.6
ghostbeer (241) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Very sweet and yet fairly mild overall without the punch that I hoped for. That said, it is pretty solid and would buy again.

3.4
AnG_BrgNor (791) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle. Brown with small head. Aroma is malt burned caramel and some roasted. Taste is malt, toffee, some peated and some chocolate. Alcohol is present as well. Nice, but not very complex.
