At nearly 8% ABV, this strong ale packs caramel sweetness & a slight hint of smoked malt to go with its powerful punch.

Pours a dark caramel color with a sweet malt aroma. Taste is similar, slight bitter malt aftertaste. A decent sweetness in the overall flavor with a well hidden alcohol content.

This is a pretty decent beer. Nice body, sweet flavor with lots of malts. Just a touch of bitterness. Very nice.

Cloudy reddish beer - very sweet, almost sticky - there is a lot of smokiness in this one, both from the peat smoked malt they use, and the phenols from the yeast - however, there are a lot of other unwanted/undesirable phenols as well (mostly plasticy, band-aid qualities) - the strength and sweetness cover these up a little, but there are still hard to ignore - this beer was lucky I liked the smoky character so much.

Crushed with Jakebra. Not an incredible scotch. My kilt has yet to lift. Pretty smooth. Surprisingly hoppy in the finish, and gets a little sour, but pretty nice overall.

Generally I prefer Scottish ales to be more stout. But again, I decided to let this one speak for itself rather than comparing it to the "extreme" brews I’ve grown accustomed to. Pours copper with amber highlights. Tastes a bit smoky and medicinal with a very nice lightly roasted malt. A bit of peat and honey, too. Taken together, they remind of Scotch, which I suppose isn’t so bad.

Tap @ Pumphouse: Poured a dark brown-amber color with a medium sized beige head. Smokey, caramel and sweet malt aroma. The flavor was malty and sweet with a hint of fruit and bread. Light smoke with a semi-sweet finish. Light-medium body.

On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Pours a dark copper mahogany with a nicely-lacing light tan head. Aroma of good sweet peaty caramel and a touch of doughy yeast. Body starts with good sweet caramely maltiness, giving way to a great, authentic, rich peaty smoky finish. A nice Scotch ale.
