This pours dark ruby like brown, leaving a nice carmel color head. After a while that dissipates, and then I dump the bottom of the bottle into the mix and the review continues from there. It's now a bit cloudy, but that was my decision. After a while (now), a small island of foam and a ring remain.

In the nose I'm getting a bit of cocoa, floral, and ....cinnamon? I'm not sure, but I didn't read other reviews yet (to prevent bias) and my nose isn't the best...

Taste is, well, scotch ale like. Mine has warmed a bit, so it is a little more, um, "English-like", molassis-spice stuff, and, well, I'm tasting a bit of sour hop - um - in the finish. Different, interesting...

Mouthfeel was much better in the first half right out of the bottle and cold. Now it is flattening out. It seems a bit thin, too.

Overall, this ain't bad. If you happen to see it, it's worth trying. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, and I wouldn't stock up on it, but if you come across it and like the style, it's worth giving a try.
