BBD June 18. Dark amber pour with a deep dark ruby cast. Exceptional head, lacing and retention. Rich nose of dark fruit and malt - figs, raisins and plums against a rich malt sweetness. The body is heavy medium with a nice slick, almost creamy, texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. While not as intense as Jacobite, it follows the nose as well. The dark fruits flow into a light hop bitterness over a slightly sweet dark malt background. The smooth finish leaves a bit of lingering oak.

A - poured a dark mahogany, held to light revealed a brilliant clear ruby. Had was 1.5 fingers and dimished to a nice frothy cap.

S - aroma is very sweet, lots of molasses, toffee, buttery, slight canvas.

T - really complex malt forward flavor that has a surprising amount of Bittering hops to even it out. The complex malt is greatly enjoyable with tons of candi sugar, molasses, toffee, and raisin notes. The Bittering hops are spot on for what's needed to support the heavy malt character, surprisingly for something from Scotland, would have figured it would be more subdued. I also feared diacetyl, I sensed some in the nose, however the taste was clean and it's presence was only slight. Oak was also very slight but was present and played well this balanced brew.

M - mouthfeel is on par for the style, ample carbonation.

O - overall a great example of the style, looks amazing and the complex smooth malt flavor is accentuated well with ample hop bitterness. Very drinkable, but still complex and enjoyable.
