341ml brown bottle. Pours orangey brown. Head is light tan coloured, fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. Aroma is surprisingly smokey and campefire-like with a dash of caramel malt. Flavour is similar to aroma, smokey malts, some caramel sweetness, light note of peat. Light caramel aftertaste. Average body and carbonation level. Good session ale, decent example of Scottish ale from New Brunswick of all places.
On tap at the brewery: Opaque dark brown color, with a copper hue, and no visible activity. Weak creamy beige 1 finger head, dead in a minute, with poor legs. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, oysters, rye, barley, faint scotch, herbal spices. A little sweet with balanced bitterness. Creamy full body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish, dry stout feel, lingering roasted dark malts. This scotch ale is too weak and accessible form a low ABV. The flavors are below average, bland and unpleasant feel, low freshness and no love. Overall bad quality craft. deyholla (11759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2016
On tap at John Browns. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a strong nuttiness with sweet grains and bread supporting. Flavor has a combination of sweet grains and nuts with an underlying toffee note. Travlr (25269) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Clear deep amber brown, tan edge gead. Aroma of burnt caramel. Taste is tiasted roasty caramel. BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Slurped one last night, thank goodness for the new taster pack. Hopefully PH will keep mixing it up. Looks like it tastes and smells, earthy translucent mud-brown with a thin off white head. Really smells of light spices, barnyard, horse breath and maple. Taste is much the same with some burnt toffee and roasty malts and very light bittering hops. A mildly syrupy, oily feel with light carbonation makes this a great sipper. Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Now most people would probably find this too smokey and horse like, and they would be right. I rather enjoy the smokey flavour. It smells like you are combing a horse in a barn, but in a good way. Not something you would want to drink too much of, but quite interesting brew.

Basically liquid smoke. Pretty clean finish. Pours very dark amber. Smells of smoked peat, light scotch. Good for something different but not great.

Pours a clear dark brown with a small brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of smoke, peat, campfire, nuts and some sweet malts... Caramel like in the background. Taste is an overwhelming amount of peat, campfire, nuts almost burnt like flavors. Body is thin and dominated by peat not much in the way of a malt body on this one or else the use of smoked malts is just to overwhelming. cards04 (2822) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a chestnut brown. Aromas of raisin bread and smoked meat. Similar flavors. The smoke is a bit too prevelant for me. dfinney23 (3366) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pours auburn brown with a thick peaky head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is smoky, malty, a bit fruity. Taste is smoke, caramel, dark fruit. bulldogops (2702) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle. 4.8%. Dark brown/black pour (colour of an irish stout) with a bubbly tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee. Taste is quite sweet at first, malt and toffee, but quite lightbodied. Rather bitter and bland through the finish. Meh.
