Molasses brown with a thin tan head. Decent lacing.

Smells of chocolate with a hint of smokiness.

Sweet and malty with a dry finish. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and plum.

Nice carbonation. Keeps the thick beer from being too sticky.

Bigger hop profile than other scotch ales. Cuts through the sweetness setting it apart from the typical style.
