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.

Dark brown.Almost opaque.Off-white head.Dark brown sugar, molasses and some dark fruit aroma.Tastes good. Sweet, only a little bitter.Slight sense of alcohol.A long finish slightly sour and more of the dark sugar/plum/molasses flavor. Good.The brewers description is pretty accurate.

rumproasts (6035) - 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.

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 (2124) - 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.

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.

Aroma is malty and traditional but a touch on the mild side. Flavor is more rich with a hint of smoke very nice, Bittersweet with some Carbonic Tang. Body is on the thin side but not too bad nice finish good beer overall.
