Consumed at Stone Bistro Liberty Station (where it is brewed and is currently available nowhere else) on September 7th, 2013.

Beer is a reddish/amber/caramel color. Almost no head: just a tiny ring of foam clinging to the edges of the glass for dear life. Minimal sheeting.

Aroma - fruity melanoidin character. Slight peppery note as well.

Flavor: sweet apricots/plums, big toffee mid taste, peppery and bitter on finish.

Medium bodied, low carbonation.

Best thing called a "scotch ale" with Stone's name on it. Wouldn't mind wider availability on this one.

Purchased this beer at the Stone employee store in escondido in a growler.

Poured into a snifter within 24 hours of purchasing the growler. Poured a caramel amber type color. Very minimal head

Aroma: Sweet caramel notes, a little fruity like a fig note, and a tiny bit of the boozy-ness.

Taste: More sweet carmel notes, toffee, almost a chewy moth feel to it, medium to low carb, maybe after being in the growler, great finish on this beer really enjoyable!

Tastes like another!
