Very dark pour Scottish Ale. Definitely a heavy beer of this variety. About one finger of head. Very thick mouthfeel. 8.1% is masked well. Not an extreme hop load as typical of the type. Very full flavor. Caramel notes are present. Overall a great example of the type.

Comes out of the tap an opaque mahogany with a very thin tan head, but the latter is apparently an artifact of the pour. These folks like for you to have plenty beer! Rich aroma fills the nose with notes of hard candy, horehound and caramel with hints of toffee, malt and butterscotch. Flavor is a carnival of tastes: caramel, horehound, toffee, wood, malt, and just a whisper of apple. Texture is firm-bodied and quite fizzy, dancing all the way down to the tummy. A real hooligan among beers - hunt for it!
