4.08/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

Pours a clear mahogany in color with a short tan bubbly head falling quickly with some ephemeral lacing. The nose is big and sweet and opens up as the beer warms. It highlights rich caramel, sticky toffee, some butterscotch and hints of spice (hops and maybe some cinnamon). The taste is very similar featuring heavy sweet malt, caramel, toffee/butterscotch that ends with bit of spice, but also a touch metallic and with a bit of alcohol. This has a nice rich body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very tasty Scotch Ale, rich and sweet.

3.9/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

served from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass

A: very dark golden brown when held to the light, Head two finger width but fades quickly.

S: licorice and caramel, strong alcohol smell typical of the style

T: sweet licorice and alcohol in a good way. A nice spicy hop but not bitter at all. Hint of clove.

M: Thick and heavy, coats the mouth in a sweet warming spice.

O: Very good variation of the style strong but doesn't turn the stomach. Great beer for the price. 6 pack instead of a 4 which is typical for this style.
