LOOK: Pours dark brown with a tan head that laces the glass well. Retention is strong and the overall appearance suits the style.

SMELL: Aroma of Scottish style malting, with peat smoke, caramel, whiskey and toffee.

TASTE: More of the peat smoked malts giving it the taste of a scotch or whiskey. Nice mellow drinking brew with solid flavor. Scotch ale is right, this fits right in with a cigar and an aged scotch sidecar. Hops are in the background with some earthy pine. Peat smoke, toffee, brown sugar, and scotch.

FEEL: Medium to full bodied, smooth, with a smokey, scotch like aftertaste.

OVERALL: Quite a brew here. Brings out the trademark flavors of the style. I would recommend this brew to dark ale and scotch fans alike.

On-tap at Fat Head's in N. Olmsted, Ohio

Pours a clear brown with a slight haze; off-white head with nice lacing and retention. The aromas are very grainy. Lots of sweet caramel malts with hints of toffee and butterscotch. The flavors seem to really match the nose. The flavors are extremely crisp and refreshing. It's not syrupy or sweet at all. More caramel notes. Not bitter. Mouthfeel is wonderful. It's medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's extremely smooth and fluffy. Alcohol goes unnoticed and it's dangerously drinkable.

Very nice Scotch Ale. It's not flashy, just well executed and stays true to style. It's very fun to drink.
