was not what I expected...tasted more like a porter than a scottish ale, deep malt with a sweet taste, maybe raisin or dates, very nice
Slightly smoky pecan nose. Clear brown, thick yellow head. Cocoa, date, smoke, bread crust. Medium body, easy carbonation. Wonderful layers of complexity. Niko100 (3012) - Chicago, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2017
Dark brown/ruby color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted sweet malt, peat/wood, caramel, & some fruit; Flavor of slight roasted malt, caramel/syrup, dark fruit, some chocolate, and spice; Pretty decent. jrodooo5 (1748) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Solid scotch that may be a tad overrated? Pours brown w/ a razor thin head & good lacing. The aroma is primarily caramel. The flavor is a crisp caramel that is slightly dry. It's very well balanced & quite smooth. Really nice overall! gregwilsonstl (2707) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Dark amber brown. Smells and tastes malty. Sweet maltiness. Underfermented Malt bomb that actually works well.
Dry. Thanks Seymour for this treat! randy1969 (112) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2017
Aroma is toasted moat, with sweet notes of caramel. Pours clear and dark copper red with minimal head. Sweet taste with toffee, and caramel before the malts take over. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Slick texture with a dry, boozy finish

Shared from 12oz brown bottle into nonic half-pint glasses, thanks Jake! It poured a near-opaque deep reddish brown colour with sudsy beige foam, lasting with lace. Rich malty sweet, caramel, toffee, root beer. Full body, big chewy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Nice alcoholic strength, warming, but no hot fusel alcohols. A very tasty Americanized Scottish ale. Good stuff. Itzjerm (3172) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - AUG 13, 2017
Nose is light scotch style grain. Flavor is the same. This isn't over hopped but hopped enough to enjoy. Hop profile adds to sweetness. Very balanced Scottish ale.

Pint glass from the source. Deeper amber/mahogany color with light tan head. Aroma is malty and has some mild dark fruit qualities. Taste is malt forward with caramel and toffee notes. Mild dark fruit characteristic coming through. Very low bitterness. Strong example of the style. You may take our lives but you will never take our...opportunity to have this again. lbianchi66 (451) - FRANCE - APR 8, 2017
Robe brune avec une jolie mousse beige malheureusement peu persistante. Arômes malté, fumé, tourbé. Goût caramel et malté.
Carbonatation fine et abondante. Texture légèrement sirupeuse.
Bonne bière. andrewje41 (4519) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2017
12 oz bottle poured, with a massive thanks to Chris for the bottle. Any time I get to try a top rated beer from a style, I’m in. Dark copper brown pour with a thick, cream foam head. Toasty, slightly sweet caramel aroma. Flavor is a good roasted malt, paired with a slightly sweet rich caramel. Slight plastic. Some vanilla. Thick body. Pleasant cream. A delicious beer for the style. Pretty sure it deserves the top spot in the style. Excellent.
