look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

I purchased this bottle as a single at Corks and Kegs in Richmond, VA - served in a DFH snifter - let warm up for approx 2 minutes

Popped the top and poured, this beer poured wonderfully. This beer has a decent head, adequate lacing and overall an okay appearance. It was a hazy reddish orange, quite opaque.

Floral and perfumey on the nose with heavy malts.

Upon sampling the foam it's exploding all over with floral tid bits, then once I dive into the beverage below it becomes almost a milky taste and feel. It sounds weird, but it was amazing. I had doubts for this beer because the word "scotch" was in it and I hate scotch but I was impressed a lot. The overall taste was of floral, milky malt if I had to put a word on it.

Felt amazing on the mouth, smooth and weighted but not heavy. I read others that say this is a sipper but not for me, I felt as though it were smooth enough to take in gulps and I found myself doing just that.. before long it was all over and I was sad..

For 8.9 this beer is VERY drinkable (which is scary). The ethanol is hidden quite well
