Smoky moreso than peaty with haunted lace on a dark mahogany body and no particular smell. The flavor is a bit awkward with its herbal mulch qualities. Certainly it's not traditional. The taste is dusty, punky, and challenging to warm up to. Not bad, but ambiguous and indifferent. (281 characters)

Had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: rich dark brown with a finger of super creamy tan foam.

Smell: sweet malty aroma with a nice bready character. A bit on the mild side, though, intensity-wise.

Taste: nutty and caramelly malt character. A bit sweet with low bitterness; this beer is decent but tastes more like a brown ale than a Scotch ale.

Mouthfeel: medium body which is super smooth and creamy. Excellent!

Overall: a decent beer if not particularly to-style. Still, I like it. (516 characters)

Day old growler drank with dungeness crab outside on a miserably hot bay.
Initially, I poured this straight out of the fridge, which was far too cold, maybe half a finger of head. After letting it sit for five minutes, I set in. Tons of walnut and some sour spice I cannot pinpoint. Fairly low carbonation. Very, very drinkable at room temperature. (348 characters)
