Pours an alluring deep brown color, with a bit of a redness to it. Bone white head recedes to a thin sliver atop the beer but it does adhere to the glass nicely. Barely translucent, some sediment is visible towards the bottom of the glass. Yeast? The aroma is very decadent with a maltiness dominating amongst raisins, pineapple, and maple candy. Taste - wow - very full bodied, yet the alcohol content is undetectable. It begins with a splash of sweetness, then hops rush in with a very nice bitter shot to the palate immediately following. I really like the way it coats the mouth fully and gives me that great warming sensation on the way down. Truly a great beer - I have to start seeking out more Scotch Ales like this!
