Serving: Bottle into Corsendonk tulip
Served: 2 July 2013
Appearance: An amazing dark red- so dark that it looks nearly black unless you hold it up to some soft light to let the red notes shine through. The red looks like a cherry-wood sort of red. Pours with a light brown, dirty colored head that slowly dissipates. Leaves some lacing.
Smell: Smells like sweeter malts. Dark and caramelly though.
Taste: Tastes kind of like a Doppelbock- sweet and caramelly, with some dark fruit notes. The sweet carameliness is probably the most notable flavor in this one. Great, full-bodied taste finishes semi-sweet. For being >8%, this beer doesn't taste or feel boozy, and drinks dangerously smooth.
Mouthfeel: Here's where this beer shines, in my opinion. The mouthfeel for this one is incredible- it's quite minimally carbonated, and the bubbles feel small on the palate, giving it a thicker, creamier feeling on the tongue. It is absolutely magnificent for this beer, and really helps showcase the taste.
Overall: A great beer, and one that I would gladly get again. I wasn't the biggest fan of the caramel tasting darker malts when I first got into craft beer, but it is definitely growing on me, thanks to beers like this. Would certainly recommend.

This scotch ale pours a deep brownish mahogany hue with a very slight off white head that leaves a thin film and substantial lacing. The aroma is deep, rich, and sweet. Lots of burnt sugar caramel and toffee notes plus a little vanilla and alcohol. It is definitely a thicker side of medium bodied beer with lots of coating sweetness. The flavor is amazing. Lots of rich malts following the profile set up by the nose. There is a little bitterness on the tail that just makes one want to dive back in for another sip of the awesome caramely malts on the front end. This is a great example of this style and always a favorite from one of my favorite breweries.
