Poured on tap in a 10oz pour. Had a hazy brown/ruby tint. Poured a yellowish/tan head that slowly faded down. The smell had a maple syup nose to it. We sat with a couple of friends that thought it had a strong whiskey smell, but we thought it was on par with most scotch ales. the ale was fairly complex and went through multiple flavour changes. It started off with a sweet maple flavour, which faded bitter and then finished sweet and scotchy. Aftertaste notes of fig or almond which lingered nicely on the palate.
Would I buy it again? Yes.
Serving type: on-tap
