Reviewed in tandem with the Founders Backwoods Bastard ale. Poured into an XL snifter at 45 degrees F.

A - Pours very dark red, almost a bit of purple. Minimal head that recedes immediately, leaving a few bubbles.

S - Some dark malts and molasses. Faint hints of scotch and sherry.

T - Quite the diverse malt profile on this one. Some dark fruits that were not present in the nose.

M - Mildly carbonated, but still a hearty brew. Alcohol isn't very well-concealed though.

O - Pretty good. A fine example of a scotch ale at the very least.
