look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is slightly hazy dark amber-brown in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that faded away, leaving only a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are very light aromas of caramel malts in the nose along with some hints of dark fruits.
T: The taste has complex flavors of caramel malts along with notes of toffee and hints of peat in the finish. There is some malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The smoke leaves a little dryness in the finish.
O: This beer seems very easy to drink compared to some of the other beers in the style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy dark amber to reddish brown in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a thin (less than a quarter of a finger tall) beige head that quickly reduces to a mottled surface of extremely thin film and a thin ring around the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toffee and caramel malt sweetness with some notes of dark fruits.

T: Moderate amounts of malty sweetness with notes of toffee and caramel. There are also some notes of dark fruits. Slight amounts of iodine flavors from the peat smokiness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: I was hoping for a little bit more peat smokiness in my scottish ale... This is a little easier to drink than a lot of other offerings in the style as it is not as sweet as they often are. A very solid offering and one I would have again.

A Dark brown with hints of amber. Small head dissipates quickly.

S Malt, candied fruit and a touch of booze. A nice smelling beer. Very inviting.

T Toasty malt, caramel with a small hop note at the end. Tasty and easy to drink. Delicious beer.

M Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A dry finish.

O Love this beer. Have a nice selection of 12 oz bottles in the fridge and this is old faithful. Delicious, refreshing and goes down oh so easily. Well done Three Floyds!

Out of a bottle during a recent swing through Chicago...

A - Two fingers worth of whipped slightly fluffy medium khaki colored head... The color is slightly glowing ruby tinged medium brown... A moderate bit of slow to moderate paced carbonation much of which clings to the sides of the glass...

S - Loaded with caramel sweetness... Toffee... A huge whiff of dark fruits... Figs... Dates... Raisins... Brown sugar... Some very subtle smoky character... A very light earthy hop scent... Very nice aroma...

T - Loaded with malty goodness... Caramel... Toffee... Lots of dark fruit notes... Fig... Raisins... Perhaps even some cranberries... The finish also had some slight medicinal notes...

M - Medium to full bodied... Light but assertive carbonation... Quite fizzy... A bit sticky... Not as smooth as I typically would hope for in the style...

D - I had wanted to try this one for quite a while and am very happy to have had the opportunity... Unfortunately this one was a bit of a let down and my least favorite of the FFF that I have tried (though still quite good)... This one was a bit rough around the edges...
