A - dark brown bordering on black, tons of thin chocolate milk colored foam, falls quickly but comes back to life with a swirl
S - rum soaked raisins/fruit, alcohol
T - quite fruity (raisins, figs), caramel, quite sweet but a tart twang as well, alcohol
M - the carbonation keeps a very big, sweet beer from becoming syrupy
O - another quality beer from a great brewery, the sum is better than any one piece, quality beer but the taste becomes chore at the end of the bottle, the alcohol also detracts

thanks to cyrusthepup, who sent this to me ages ago.
a - brew poured a deep purple that when held to the light looked dark as anything with very faint ruby tints on the edge of the glass. generous 3 fingers plus of big creamy beige head that hung out forever.
s - spicy plums. lots of seasoning...all spice...some nuts and ripe fruits. smells like candy. cherry grape candy.
t - hmmm...interesting. very belgian dark ale flavorings. plums and dark fruit with candied sweetness. big nut presence. hint of heat. toasted caramel malts.
m - fairly carbonated. prickly. a touch oxidized.
o - overall, not the greatest scotch ale, but by no means a bad beer. fairly spicy for the style and very reminiscent of a belgian dark as opposed to a scotch.

A - Pours a murky brown with a bit of mahogany around the edges and a finger of thick frothy tan-brown head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet toasted caramel and toffee malts with some raisin and dark fruits with a bit of yeast and booze.
T - Starts off with a mix of sweet toasted caramel and toffee malts with some plum, raisin, and other dark fruit sweetness. Through the middle, some yeast flavor comes through with some caramelized flavor. The finish is a mix of caramelized malts, with some dark fruit and yeast flavor, and a bit of booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch syrupy with a warming and sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice scotch ale. Good rich and bold malt profile with good body and balance.
