A - Red chestnut, thick yet transparent. Creamy traces of head linger to the end of the glass.

S - Malty to the core with pleasant caramelisation.

T - Rich and nutty, could pair easily with a game stew or dundee cake. Strongly malted flavours complimented a little sweetness to open and a hint of bitterness to finish.

M - Sticky and syrupy. I preferred the reduced carbonation I got from having this a couple of days after filling over and against fresh draft; it allows the carmelised maltiness to shine through more easily.

O - Highly sessionable, keeping the abv. well hidden. The finish is pretty long, and is in keeping with the sweet, malty and sticky characteristics of the beer. I definitely preferred this warmer and flatter.

16oz on tap in a shaker pint glass at the Pine Box, Seattle WA.

Appearance: Clear deep coppery red. Thin light tan head. Plenty of fine persistent lacing.

Smell: Not very much. A little bit metallic when I first got it. Some hints of something clean & floral with some underlying sweetness later. The sweetness came out more as the beer warmed up but still faint.

Taste: Good malt flavor, but not overly sweet. Transitions from toasted malt and a hint of toffee to a solid bitter finish. Fairly hoppy, but not exceedingly aggressive. Still, more hoppy than most scotch ales/wee heavy beers I've had. The hop finish was part pine, part herbal, part woody. The bitterness subsided a bit as the beer warmed up.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation - a little spicy on the tongue. Sticky on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: An interestingly hoppy take on a scotch ale. I was not expecting that much of a bitter finish, but it works. A good full flavor beer, but a bit different for the style. One was enough though - I'm not feeling like I need to have another.
