No date code, but I think this is a seasonal and I believe my sample is fresh. Beer pours out a brownish color with a tan head. Not much lacing or anything too remarkable. Smells like toffee, some faint dark chocolate, molasses, and yet no smoke which I find sorta odd. Tastes nicely bittersweet, some rich dark roasted malts, with a slight bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced. Not very earthy or peaty like I have found with other Scottish inspired ales. I swear years ago this was a different beer, big earthy malts and sweet alcohol but now it reminds me of a nice brown ale. Don't get me wrong, this is a good beer but quite uncharacteristic of the style and somewhat "normal" for a Three Floyd's beer. Mouthfeel is fine. Overall a decent beer but kinda marginal for such an awesome brewer. And please, date code your beer guys...
