12oz bottle poured into Duvel Green tulip. Thanks again Mathew!
A: Pours a deep mahogany color with a minimal light brown head. Head quickly faded into nothingness leaving faint short-lived lace down the glass.
S: Huge notes of very sweet sugary dark fruits. I get notes of plums, prunes, dates, figs, raisins, cranberry and red apples. Caramel, honey, pear and molasses are there as well. Extremely sweet overall.
T: Sweet but thankfully not too cloying. All the fruits from the nose hit my palate at first, followed by hints of tobacco, leather, chocolate, brown sugar and bitter, leafy hops. The finish is full of candied dates, salt, and a lingering sweetness and bitterness at the same time.
M: Full body, medium-full mouthfeel, greasy and slick with low and tight carbonation that is tingly when it first hits.
O: Definitely a sweet and complex beer. Heavy leafy bitterness in the finish adds a nice balance. Thanks again, Matt!

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.
