Thanks to pwoods for providing the opportunity to try this beer
A - Opaque with a slightly thin head that kinda goes away quickly and just forms a halo of sorts around the rim. there's no lacing and I can see carbonation bubbles streaking along the sides to the top.
S -Definite dark fruits with an alcohol presence, reminds me of a fruit bread. Great aroma and very inviting, I caught myself smelling this beer more than was necesarry.
T - After my initial taste I had to double check the ABV% to make sure this beer was actually almost 10%, very smooth for such a alcohol presence. The flavors don't seem overly complex but this works really well for this beer IMO. Lots of malty goodness accompanied with flavors of dark fruits and candies.
M - Not a ton of carbonation which really works well for this beer. The beer just sorta slides over my tongue leaving a smooth pleasant aftertaste.
D - This is a great tasting scotch ale and one that I will definitely seek out again, but being so high in alc.% you really can only have so many of these.
