3.8/5 rDev -7.1%
A - pours a super deep dark brown with a finger of dark tan head, very dense, strong retention, solid lacing.
S - candied sugar and dark fruits, fig/dates. Not very sweet. Molasses and minimally sweet maple syrup.
T - super light. Dark fruits again, figs mostly light sugars at the finish aftertaste can be quite boozy as it warms. Cool its fairly light and refreshing.
M - much too light for me. Relatively drinkable for sure, medium/low carb quite smooth. Mouth feel is really awesome but at the same time not what I want from this beer at all.
O - mixed feelings on this one, I like it. But not for a scotch ale

Pours a dark brown with a big khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has rich toffee and dark fruit notes. Some chocolate notes are there as well. The taste is more of that dark fruit and chocolate sweetness. Some sherry notes, perhaps. Big, chewy mouthfeel and body. Lower end of carbonation.

3.64/5 rDev -11%
Appearance- Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head that recedes quickly and leaves no lacing.
Smell- First smell is raisins along with some background notes of toffee and burnt caramel. The raisin/prune smell is very dominant.
Taste- Similar to the smell I get a strong prune taste. I get some dark chocolate and a little burnt caramel on the back end. Almost no bitterness, fairly sweet and tart.
Mouthfeel- Body is medium, good carbonation for the style. Leaves a slick feeling after swallowing.
Overall- Not a bad beer, but the strong prune taste and smell made me not enjoy it as much. A very different take on a scotch ale.
