Poured into a flute from 12 oz. bottle, this beer is a tough review because I find the tap little more fulfilling.
Appearance: Dark Brown with an 1/8 light brown head. Semi-opaque with cloudiness to when poured into the right lighting.
Smell: What a horrible word, I would say this beer has aroma...if i could describe it in any away it would be part barley wine meets espresso. You can inhale this beer and get the buzz, its like a premonition of the good to come.
Taste: Chocolatey, but bitter which is incredible oxymoron for beer.Sweet caramel feel offsets everything else. I do try all different types of beer and I simply just love this beer.
Mouth: Very full with medium carbonation, taste is super sticky...you finish a glass and taste is still there. It hints of chocolate/coffee and maybe a dash of grapefruit and wine. I used this before and will use it again the flavor just "hug your cheeks".
Overall: Incredibly finished beer I loved it beginning to end. You will get almost everything with this beer, lacking maybe appearance which isn't much since it's going to end up in your stomach. Best of all you can get it year round, this beer is definitely top of my A list and should be on top of yours. Salud!

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.
