Tap at CYO. Pours a deep brown with a finger of foam that lingers. Lots of malt on the nose with caramel toffee and chocolate standing out. Full-bodied with a chewiness to it. More caramel chews on the palate. A good fall/winter beer for sure. Percy0103 (777) - MEXICO - OCT 15, 2016

A Scottish Ale with a malty flavor. Dark in color, lite aroma, rich but not overbearing. chucklemation (1747) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2016

Great beer. Tastes like a really malty porter. Sort of like Monday night drafty kilt.

BOD 2/3/16. Dark brown cola like pour that is clear and turns a beautiful garnet under intense light. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing.
Outstanding nose of toasted malt with subtle notes of char and smoke over a caramel substrate with a dark fruit element, probably plum.
Almost medium body with a very smooth texture that has creamy aspects. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish that tickles the tongue.
The flavor profile is quite outstanding. Intensity is moderate, complexity is outstanding and balance is perfect. In short, this tastes great but doesn’t hit you with in your face flavor intensity. This is a malt forward beer that begins toasty, progresses to a moderate sweetness with strong caramel notes and a subtle molasses aspect then flows to the middle. The middle delivers just enough bitterness to perfectly balance with a pine and roast character that delivers a touch a char and a dose of smoke. These flavors slowly fade into the malty finish that brings a slight dryness and a hint of plum. Alcohol remains completely covered and a nut character emerges during the fade which also brings the strongest molasses aspects.
