Claymore Scotch Ale

Had this a few weeks ago on-tap at The Brick Store but this review is for the 12 oz bottle that I bought as a single at Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a lot darker than I was anticipating. Getting toward black. Head and lace are ultimately, largely absent.
In terms of the nose and the taste there really isn’t much more here than a alcohol inspired malt bomb. Now, one might think that is somewhat one-dimensional, but in the context of the style this just about covers the bases.
The re seems to be a touch of vanilla in there too, but ultimately this hits the spot in a simple, unassuming way and in that respect it works well.
I wouldn’t expect too much here, but think within the a style that we don’t really see enough of and you’ll be quite satisfied.
