12 oz pour from chilled can into a tulip glass. Aggressive pour produced a weak and quickly dissipating head. Mostly opaque, nice carbonation, and brown. Nose is sweet caramel and chocolate. Medium body and fairly creamy. Taste is sweet up front with a bit of a dry finish. Caramel and toffee flavors along light coffee. An alright scotch ale, though not the best Ive had.

Definitely disagree with the low rank. For a low abv Scottish style ale, this is a rich, malty slightly sweet and slightly smoky brew. Taste is smooth and rich. I dig it.

Ibrew2or3 (8458) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2014
12oz can pours with a clear ruby red to amber body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up caramel, cherry, grape juice and sweet malts. The taste delivers sweet malts and a bit of roasted malts flowing into dark fruity esters like cherries, raisins and prunes. Behind those notes are some caramel malts and a bit of earthiness that help give this added balance and depth. Pretty nice.

Beerandhockey8 (377) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap, Wolf Den, Three Forks MT. Pour is a deep amber, almost black with a thick kadi head. Weak nose, malt and slight alcohol. Taste is medium bodied, kind of sour with a touch of sweetness. Finished smooth and oily. So bland and simple.

DuffMan (9996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Can. Clear red-copper body topped by a golden head. Aroma is caramel, husky grains, lightly toasted. Caramel flavour, hint of raisins, dry peanut-skin bitterness. Aside from being malty, there isnt much to distinguish this from a simple amber ale really. But drinkable, nice enough.

Tap at Big Sky Resort. Tastes like coffee, raisins, chocolate. Smells like dates, figs, dried fruit. Slightly bitter, almost no head.

Flavor is dark, roast malts, floral and earthy hops, light woody notes, dark fruit esters, and faint toffee; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
Un coleur rouge/marron avec un nez faible de malt. Le got est de malt. Cest un peu simple. Je ne dirais pas que cest aqueux, mais il sapproche.
