A: a very deep amber with ruby highlights, the body looks clean and clear, some carb it generates a richy and very creamy tan head with good retention

S: some chocolate, smoky, nutty, a little butter, toffe, some alcohol

T: complex and well balanced, all the aromas are present, the body is heavy, the aftertaste is bitter and the alcohol is noticed, more smoky flavour than sweet caramel

Not exactly sure why I've never reviewed this beer. I've only had it eleventy-billon times. So, finally...12oz bottle at our pre-ugly sweater party into tasting glass.

A - Pours a dark brownish/red color, tan-colored head, thin collar, wisps on top.

S - Nice level of malts and hops, as only FFF can do. Caramel, bready notes, molasses, toasted malts, and, of course, hops.

T - Sweet up front, hoppy on the finish. Caramel, molasses, burnt sugars, and a nix dose of bitter hops on the end. Really nice.

M - Light, smooth, super-easy to gulp down.

O - FFF really killed it on their take of a Scottish Ale. All the sweetness is there, that you would expect of the style. Their "not normal" take is to add a nice balance of hops to go along with the sweetness. Great stuff.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a Cigar City Snifter.

Color: Brown with a tan head.

Smell: Roasted malts, toffee and alcohol.

Taste: Sweet roasted malts, toffee, hops.

Mouthfeel: Mid-low carbonation, medium coarse and mid dry feel.

Overall: From the aroma I wasn't wxpecting the sweetness up front. It was a nice welcome though. Definitely a decent Scottish Ale. Cheers!

Had a 12 oz. bottle of this at Emerson's Ale House. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a solid brown body with dark, see through amber edges. a 1.5 finger light khaki head forms on the pour and stick around for quite sometime. It leaves nice sticky and splotchy lace once it receded to a thin collar.

S: Sweet toffee malts with subtle undertone of light bitter bakers chocolate. There is that nice little pop at the end of the typical grapefruit/citrus like hops that FFF imparts on a majority of its brews.

T: Nice toasted malts with a nice sweet toffee taste as well. Slight is slight coffee blanket in the middle that moves towards a very little citrus fruit finish.

M: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation and prickly mouthfeel on the palate.

O: A very good scotch ale. I enjoyed the slight hoppy undertone I've come to love throughout the FFF beers. Very well balance.
