Poured into a nonic pint glass on 12/1/12
Wooden, tobacco brown color after the foam settles. One thumb, smooth head has excellent staying power. Two lasting pillars of lace are parted by the beer when taking drinks.
Caramel, figs and raisin bread comprise much of the aroma. Hints of fall leaves, herbal/earthy hops and a hint of nutty overtone. A strong toffee note emerges as the beer warms.
The flavor is far more earthy with a decent semblance of black walnuts. The middle has a dry caramel/bread combo that fits in nicely. The finish has a moderate leafy bitterness. Faint hints of cocoa and molasses hidden in the mix.
The feel is a medium-thin, light feel with smooth fluidity from the nitrogen.
Very easy to drink considering the giving feel and reasonable abv. Simple and enjoyable.
Serving type: nitro-can

A: Very clear deep amber color with a moderate creamy white head that settles to a layer of bubbles. Great lacing on the glass as you drink.
S: Bready, nutty, some toffee and other roasted barley sweetness. Light fruit esters as well.
T: Fresh brown bread, toffee, caramel, light esters of cherry like flavor, mild hop bitterness to keep the sweetness from totally running away. Mild earthy hop flavor as well. The finish is on the dry side and sweet.
M: Medium body with tiny crisp carbonation and a dry finish. No warming from alcohol.
O: Very clean and fresh tasting with some slight estery flavors and low on the smoky flavors with this Scottish Ale. Well done and easy to drink! I would get this again.
Serving type: bottle
