First Scotch Ale, received from a friend in SD.
A-Pours brown, with a little bit of dark red permeating throughout the beer. Makes a mahogany color. Very little head that dissipates nearly immediately. Pretty good lacing.
S-Very malty aroma, almost reminds me of a brown ale. I get the hint of some nuts and even light overtones of mocha. Even with the malts, cant help hide the hops at the back end.
T-Malts taste wonderful and the beer covers up the ABV unbelievably. After smelling the beer, expected to get much more alcohol, but not the case. Also pretty sweet and as smooth as any beer I have ever had.
M-The beer is deceiving considering its alcohol content, you'd never guess it was nearly 9 percent. Extremely smooth, although not as much of a kick as I would have liked. Leaves you wanting more after every sip.
D-This beer is so smooth and tasty, you could sit and have multiple pours and continue wanting more if you didn't realize it was so potent. Can't say enough about this beer. Great collabo between some world class brewers.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz. bottle pouted into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Liquid pours light brown and amber with light red highlights. A little lighter when held up to the light. Pretty good clarity, some slight particles floating around. Off white/cream collared head, not much in the way of lacing and it doesn't stick around too long.
Smells really good. Lots of caramelized malts, a reasonable dose of vanilla, brown sugar/butter blend, followed by an appropriate amount of spicy hops.
Taste might be a touch better than the smell. Very well malted, but not in the slightest bit a sugar bomb. Plenty of caramelized roasted malts, a nice vanilla/brown sugar blend. There's also the slightest bit of an earthy smoke flavor. Mostly herbal hops with the slightest touch of over ripe, sweet tangerine citrus.
Mouthfeel is great. Full bodied and a good carbonation level. Slightly buttery with a nice dry, spicy finish. Really drinkable, goes pretty quick, especially for a scotch ale. Nice job boys, another awesome Stone Collab.
