First, I have to say that I love the color of this beer! It is one of the most unique I've seen: a light chocolate color and the texture of this beer is phenomenal! I absolutely love the Scotch flavor in this rich, dark beer. If you like your dark beers with a liquor taste, then give this one a try, you won't be disappointed.
