A: Dark brown, Finger of beige head fades fast, semi-opaque but filtered, slight red tinge when held to the light.
S: Coffee, dark toasted malt, slight scotch scent, rye- pumpernickel bread, cigarette breath.
T: Coffee, rye-pumpernickle bread, cigarette, sweetness on the end. I think of dark lagers like the one from Portugaul, but more sweetness and other elements. Biscuity and bready.
M: Medium body with some syrup quality as well as medium high carbonation.
O: Not like Old Chub which is my fav so far in this style, but fair. Fine by itself or with some Haggis or turnips.

Poured from a can into a La Fin du Monde tulip. The pour is a beautiful reddish-brown, quite dark and clear, and sports a nice thick foamy head with some really good retention and lacing. Somewhat mild nose with light notes of toasted malt, hazelnuts, and toffee.
Medium body, firm feel, and a malt-forward flavor. Not as rich as some Scotch ales, but still a fair amount of toasty goodness. Some bread and biscuit notes up front are quickly accented by raisins, toffee, and then by just enough of a hop kiss to provide some spice on the finish. Very drinkable and food-friendly beer.
