Look. Murky, unfiltered (?) honey brown with a medium small, light brown head.
Smell. Yeasty, even toned, possible hint of chocolate.
Taste. Pretty strong hop front, richness of grain, low sugar sweetness, somewhat dry finish, bit of caramel poking through, timidly.
Mouthfeel. Heavy body, chewy, oily grains. Pretty robust.
Overall. Good twang of hops, mild grains except in the mouthfeel. Better complexity in the mouthfeel than in the taste. A nice scotch ale, leaning toward the barley wine neighborhood.

Pours dark. You can taste the scotch. Good on its own or perfect for boilermakers.
