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.

Toffee, Chocolate aroma. No head on mine but might be because of the glass I'm using. Really great tasting. My first Scottish ale so not much experience to compare too but it's a keeper to me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A superior Scotch Ale. Rich, smooth, malty, with a fairly high ABV and without any alcohol burn. Just smoky and sweet enough not to be cloying. Poured into goblet, it presents a near perfect sipping opportunity. Great Divide has brewed great ale!

dorain (691) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2017
Vom Fass im Stone Brewing Berlin 2017-11 getrunken. Ein wunderbares, typisches WeeHeavy mit einen schönen malzigen, vollen Körper und doch ist es gefährlich süffig. Ein feines Teil - lecker!

Klares, rötlcihes dunkelbraun mit relativ wenig Schaum. Malzig, Röstaromen, leichte Rauchnoten, Karamell, getrocknete Beeren, Wacholder, süffig.

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2017
bottle. Deep amber brown with one finger head. Sweet with caramel and toffee. Light booze. Smooth with surprising depth. This isn't a style I generally dig, but this was excellent.

Bacchus66 (967) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2017
12oz bottle at home. Clear dark amber brown with a thin off-white head. Dark fruits, molasses, caramel, toffee, nuts, sweet roasty malt. A little on the light side for a Scotch ale, still very good.

ebone1988 (2162) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is metallic, caramel, toffee, earthy hops, some roasted malt. Appearance is very dark brown, light brown head, I'm starting to wonder if this is actually Yeti. Taste is earthy hop, metallic, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, bitter yet sweet, way off. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, vanilla caramel metallic bitter aftertaste. Overall, not sure where this one became a Scotch Ale. Pretty sure I just don't like this brewery.

MrTipple (6570) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Smoked flavours, bacon, dark, toasted malts. Clear, very dark brown, small, off-white head. Heavy sweet. More sweet chocolate, sweet grain and bread malts, dark molasses, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Nice aroma but bizarrely sweet in palate.
