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.

Cavie (4654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle from Marys. Dark ruby brown pour with a light white head. Aroma of roasted malts and peet moss. Very lovely aroma. Taste is heavy on the malts, roasted notes and moss. Finishes sweet with heavy notes.

halfonit (1356) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Pours a very dark brown, almost black color. Aroma is of malts, coffee, raisins, bark, and some nuttiness. Flavor is of malts, chocolate, nuts, caramel, and coffee. Leaves a coffee malt finish.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Dark brown pour into thick, foamy tan head that slowly dissipates into sticky melting lacing on the glass as it falls into a ring of foam. Aroma of sweet caramel and roasted malt. Initial sweet malty flavor that fades into a warming hoppy finish.

A: Pours an opaque dark brown with medium light brown carbonation. S: Malty and sweet. T: Just like the smell, strong malt body and sweetness dominate this brew with no hints of alcohol in sight. P: Light but a bit sticky.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Very dark reddish brown pour that borders on black. The head is 1.5 fingers and looks like beige cappuccino froth. The aroma is primarily caramel malt with some bitter chocolate, smoked malt, toffee, and mild citrus hop. The flavor starts very sweet and dark sugar malt oriented: caramel, molasses, chocolate, toffee, and a little molasses. Some chocolate and very mild coffee hints come through as well. The hop character acts as a nice bittering balance, but doesnt stand alone with its own character. The palate is rich, creamy, thick, and soft with low effervescence and a dryish chalky finish. Nice take on the style.

JK (6095) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2010
A very nice beer, the way I like my "wee heavy." Thick, sweet, and malty. A little salt, and lots of earth character. Good, thick palate. A little fruit and red meat in the flavor. Muddy brown appearance and a moderate palate.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours very deep brown, almost black, with creme colored bubbly head, which fades to a thin film. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate tones, slight earthy aroma, like peat. Taste is silky, medium to full bodied, slightly creamy, and very nice to drink. Caramel present but still deep notes of chocolate roast. An interesting take on a scotch ale, no complaints here though.

BrianDorry55 (361) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
12oz bottle from Warehouse Liquors in Spring Hill, FL. Pours a very dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is burnt mollasses, caramel, raisins, plums, black cherries. Flavor is alot of mollasses, caramel, and dark fruits finishing with burnt alcohol. Medium mouthfeel...unpleasant aftertaste. This is alright...i dont like mollasses...but its not bad.

3.3
caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Pours dark brown with very little head....nose is roasty and has hints of licorice and dark chocolate. Honestly I thought it was a stout when I poured it. The flavor is very stout-ish as well and frankly Im not sure how this is different than a standard dry stout. Everything about it is virtually identical. Will re-taste it.
