Single from Trixie's in Madison. Served in a fluted tulip glass, closest i've got to a thistle glass....
Ruddy copper red, sticky lace, clusters of bubbles around the sides.
Peat! Finally a Scotch Ale with peat-smoked malt. Sweet apple and smoldering hardwoods. Fall leaves and dried plums. Sticky on the lips but not sweet. Dry and woody, light specialty grain breadiness and estery dried fruit notes from the yeast. Very cohesive and balanced, thankfully not too sweet at all. This is really tasty, and I won't pass it up in the future...

(Served in a dimple mug)
A- The dense glowing brown body has a lumpy, bubbly tan head that sticks to the glass a bit.
S- The fruity note leads to light toasted malt notes in the finish.
T- The fruity quality leads to a malt flavor that has notes of dry toasted biscuit malt and perhaps some ester notes that might be a slight stale quality. The finish has a slight clove spice to it with a pungent hop hint that lingers.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a bit of a flat texture on the tongue and no alcohol heat.
O- The odd fruity flavors and the lack of luscious malt makes this a bit drab and lifeless.

This beer pours a ruddy brown, with a thick tan head. Good lacing. The aroma is very malt forward, as to be expected. Caramel with hints of chocolate and peat. Some floral/earthy hoppiness. The mouth feel is deceptively light for the amount of malt flavor you get. Very much the same as the aroma, although I do feel there is a bit to much hop presence if you go by the BJCP guidelines. My wife and I love this style and this is great example of the American version of a Caramelized Scottish 80/Wee Heavy. I made a great beef carbonade with the last flat pint in the growler (my wife made me save it for her and never got to it). It's just as good in the bottle.
