500ml bottle into a nonic.

Pours an opaque very dark brown, nearly pitch black, with a one finger medium tan head. Pretty good head retention but the lacing is lacking.

Aroma is full of toffee and caramel with some hints of sherry. Touches of oak along with dark fruits and some smoke poking through.

The flavor is very heavy on the figs and plums with more of the sherries note present in the aroma. Some burnt toffee and smokey notes in the background but the flavor is overwhelmingly fruity. It works in this case, though. Some woody notes in the background but they are very restrained. Subtle sweet mouthfeel with a bit of lingering stickiness.

Overall, a very good scotch ale and more fruity than many of the other ones I have had. Great interplay between the wood, smoke, and fruit and well balanced. A great beer.
