i have had this on tap, and from the bottle many times, I much prefer this one on tap, but it is a damn fine beer either way.

Nice brown color. Fantastic malty flavor up front, but with a lingering hop taste in the background. The "scotch" flavor is rather subdued.

Very drinkable for a 8+ abv, and one I always return to.

Serving type: on-tap
