Appearance is a hazy, dark brown iced tea with a finger of off white head which settles to a ring with minimal lacing.

Aroma is of dark fruit, raisins, dried dates, brown sugar/caramel(?), sorta barleywine-ish.

Feel is a nice round medium, with just the right amount of carbonation for me.

Taste is malty, dark dried fruit(raisin, plum, date), a hint of baked caramel(?), a hint of bitterness lingers at the very end. Noticing a bit of warming as I make my way through the glass.

Scotch ale? Not sure what that is, but I know this is well made. Enjoy!
