A: Nice frothy head with a mixture of mostly small tight bubbles but with a few larger bubbles mixed in (a sure sign it will die). I don't expect the head to remain this nice the entire beer but it should keep a presence around the rim of the glass...and it hasn't. The head has fallen from an impressive creation to a common o-ring. Crystal clean, dark auburn color. Seductive hue.
S: Familiar smell of roasted crystal malt with hints of chocolate malts. No hops on the nose to speak of.
T: Not as aggresive as I was expecting. I'm thinking glorified ESB. Sweet roasted malt flavor hits the tongue then stays...for a while... until a bitterness gently washes over, but thats about it. Very subtle peet flavors towards the end but certainly not as pronounced as most scottish ales.
M: Decent texture. Good body.
D: Eh. I was really expecting a lot here. A scottish ale from Three Floyds....it should have been great. Instead they pulled on the reigns instead of letting the beer run wild. Nice taste but not very complex.

From a bottle into a pint glass.
A: pours dark red with about 1/4 inch of thin foam that disappears quickly. I did get several rings of lace that clung to my glass through out.
S: dominated by yeast and malts.
T: a bit sweet at times giving off brown sugar notes. Yeast, malts, and a bit of oak bitterness at the end.
M: smooth and quite easy drinking. I would say medium for mouthfeel
O: not even close to my favorite from Three Floyd's or even a Scottish Ale for that matter. Not bad...but not great either.
