A- Dark chocolate with caramel hue. No head to speak of. Gums up the glass a bit.
S- Deep caramel, boozy, malty. Lots of toffee, graham cracker in the background.
T- Very deep and rich with a great barrel presence for the style. This is the creamiest, and probably best of the style that I have had. Nice boozy notes that blend very well with the deep caramel and toffee notes. The scottish ale wee heavy is very huge and punches you in the mouth. Well done
M- Creamy, very little carb that works with this style. Thin layer of caramel booze is left from each sip with a sting.
O- This is the best that I have had from the style, but still not a style that I seek out.

On tap at Perch Pub, Philly, PA.
Had this side by side with K13 and AB Grand Negro. It was definitely better than K13, and pretty close to tying with AB GN.
Deep dark brown color, with a few stray bubbles forming a collar at the top of the liquid, but otherwise no head or lacing to speak of. Not unusual. In the nose, rich dark sugars, oak and vanilla, semi-sweet chocolate. Taste was heavy and sweet, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate, bourbon-soaked oak, notes of vanilla and butterscotch. Wet wood in the finish with a slight herbal presence (peat? hop?). Full body, smooth, creamy mouthfeel, lower carbonation, some alcohol heat.
Off the top of my head, I can't think of a better beer than this for the style. Er...scratch that, BB Big Sound was better IMO...but regardless, this was a great brew, and I'm definitely not a big fan of Scotch ales.
