Appearance: Hazy medium brown in color, with a moderate, dense and persistent tan head, and thick glass-coating lace.
Aroma: Strong notes of dark caramel, wood, spice, whisky, and earth.
Taste: Opens with a wave of dark caramel and earth. Bitter cocoa flavors soon appear. As the taste progresses, a strong whisky or bourbon note appears, complete with exquisite wood notes. Late in the taste, dark fruit notes appear, which contrast nicely with the whisky flavors.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant, very full.
Drinkability/notes: Superbly crafted, an outstanding example of the style, and a must try for anyone who appreciates the Wee Heavy style.
Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.
Serving type: bottle

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.
