P: A frothy ice cream float crown resting on a body of dark hazelnut brown.
S: Dirty wet socks, moldy grain, sweet roasted caramel, dark fruits, crystallized sugar, subtle brown sugar and melted milk chocolate.
T/M: Burnt sugar, roasty caramel, molasses malt and booze. Spicy and earthy hops cut thought the sweet malt and finishes with lingering bitter apple peels. Rich milky feel with prickly carbonation and a gritty end.
O: A great take on the style. Earthy, dirty rich with a surprising spiciness. There is a lot more hops than I expected. I definitely recommend trying this.

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.
