32oz grumbler poured into a snifter. From the brewery yesterday.

A: Pours a clear dark ruby with a 1 finger off white head. Sticks around for a minute or two and leaves some lacing.

S: Sweet malts give it some carmel, roastyness to it as well as some dark fruits.

T: Great roasted malt and carmel up front. Is sweet but not overly with all the malts. Almost a coffee like flavor to it from all the roastiness.

M: Real light body for a heavy scotch ale but it makes it very sessionable. Average carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. Isnt too sticky and sweet.

Overall this is one of the best scotch ales around. Would recommend anyone who likes malts check this out. Nice roasty characteristics.

Serving type: growler

12oz bottle poured into a glass.

A: Dark copper with a subtle reddish tinge and a soapy beige head. Good retention, and a nice array of lacing is left on the glass.

S: Nutty and lightly roasted with pronounced caramelization and earth. Moderately estery with some raisin, plum, and granny smith apple. There's a light smoke presence and a hint of tartness.

T: Very fruity immediately, with notes of plum, grape, and raisin. I get a touch of dark cherry and some apple as well. Rich caramel blends with bread and a mild tartness that's surprising but delicious. The finish is very fruity with caramel, bread, and a kiss of tartness.

M: Medium body with lower moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry.

Overall: I really enjoyed this. I doubt this is supposed to be slightly tart but it's a positive here, though probably not for long.

Serving type: bottle
