3.8/5 rDev -3.3%
A: The beer is hazy dark brownish red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving large patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet malts and toffee are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of toffee along with notes of caramelized malts.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. As the beer warms up, it starts to become a little sticky. No alcohol is perceptible.
O: This beer doesn't seem to be as heavy and sticky compared to other beers in the style, which made it easier to drink.

3.9/5 rDev -0.8%
22 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours fairly crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, raisin, plum, biscuit, light nuttiness, light chocolate, light smoke, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malts and moderate fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown bread, toffee, raisin, plum, light chocolate, light nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, raisin, plum, light chocolate, light nuttiness, light smoke, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice scotch ale style. All around good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
