A: Dark red, hazy and opaque. Quickly dissipating beech colored head.
S: Deep malty with caramel undertones. Ethers and wood smoke permeate.
F: Sweet roasted burnt caramel on top of a very complex malt character. Hints of walnut, dark chocolate, plum and fig. Slightly bitter, but not via hop, more along the lines of roasted barley or a secondary malt charactr that really sets this beer apart from other beers. This beer's complexity exists on many different levels. What hop profile does exist creates a very clean tasting beer that has a non dry finish or bitter finish, but balanced. Alcohol is present, but balances out the sweetness.
M: Lightly carbonated, and full bodied.
O: Good example of the strong scotch ale style. Like previously mentioned, this beer has a multidimensional malt profile that once you think you figured out, on the next sip you recieve a whole different cascade of tastes, too numerous to mention, and too good to pass up.
Serving type: bottle
