Draft. Darker brown pour with a beige head. Some peat and smoke come through in the aroma, but its faint. Very light Scottish ale. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a nice dark amber, brown notes, a bit more orange at the bottom with a spotty offwhite head that dies to a film that clings to the edges. Just a bit hazed, just darker. Aromas are sweet caramel malts, a touch of toast, vanilla, faint cocoa, and bread. Sweeter. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter than expected, caramel and toffee blend with vanilla, grains, a touch of toast, and a sweetness, possibly a touch of dark fruit. A bit thin for the style, the malt is the focus as it should be, but this is just a bit underwhelming in flavor and body for the style. Ok, one of the more dissappointing when compared to style. ajnepple (7059) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2015
On tap at Hops & Pie. Clear amber appearance with a beige ring of foam. Mild aroma of peaty malts, earthy notes, light caramel/toffee and a touch of dark fruits. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with a touch of smoky bitterness. Average body, a little thin. OK. RobertDale (6848) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Sample at GABF. Comes reddish brown with a small tan head. Mild aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is similar. Somewhat sweet, but very drinkable. Patrickctenchi (6731) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours clear, wet copper-brown. Huge tan head.
Scent is woody, cola, nuts...sweet.
Taste is rich chocolate malt, cocoa, toffee.
This is a dessert in a can.
Extremely rich, yet drinks lightly.

It pours bronze with an off white head. It has a light body with mild carbonation. The taste has dry toffee, dried dates with light toast. Okay Scottish ale. obguthr (6656) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2011
Can at Butters’ Slutfest, courtesy of BrewEngineer: Barley, DMS, tea nose. Clear tea colored, thin yellow head. Malt flavor, but weak. Finishes cloying, there must be adjuncts. Meh. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Growler: Clean caramel brown hue with a small but lasting fizzy head, some spotty lace. The aroma has notes of hazelnut and walnut, caramel, bready, and aromatic malts, hint of cold pressed coffee and bakers chocolate, and a dash of noble hops. The taste is malt driven but not overly sweet. Some light coffeeish and hop bitterness does come through. The biggest objection I have with this brew is the lightness of the mouth feel. Sure it is shockingly easy to drink but almost to the point of becoming watery and boring. The palate is dumbed down for the masses and that is a shame. Otherwise I dug most of what this beer had to offer. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Dark reddish pour from 16oz can at Home. Carmel and malty flavor. Rich and full body. Not bad for the style
