Pours a clear rich dark ruby (when held to light). World Class head volume, lacing and retention.

Smells like a scotch ale should, but is a bit on the light side. Dark fruit (plum, date, raisin), molasses, light roast and a hint of smoke.

Medium bodied with a texture that has creamy aspects. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.

The flavor profile is intense, complex, well balanced and is borderline outstanding. It begins with a sweet burst of molasses and dark fruit that quickly yields to a roast bitterness. Under the bitterness, caramel notes emerge in the middle. Subtle smoke characteristics emerge right before the finish, gain in intensity and come to the forefront as the finish fades over a subsiding caramel and molasses sweetness. In the lingering finish, prune notes are evident as well as a slight alcohol burn, subtle dryness and bitter pucker.

Darker than it tastes. Extremely pleasant malt & spice finish.

Light on the smokey, barely any nose, high carbonation. Good start for the night,solid beer, but will follow it up with a change.

Pours a clear, very dark brown with a ruby tint when held to the light. The pour produces a solid 2 fingers of frothy, tan, shortlived, head that leaves a sheet like webs of lace. Aroma is dark malty roast, molasses, vanilla, butterscotch, some dark fruit & a hint of smoke. Taste is heavy roast, dark malt, molasses/caramel/vanilla, hints of dark chocolate, roasted nuts & a little earthy coffee with a buttery, smokey & faintly boozy finish. Afrertaste is sweet but deeply roasted malts, roasted nuts & molasses. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied, creamy with a nice peppery prickle.

Looks like a porter, not much to the nose.

Taste is really nice. Some dark roasty notes, caramel, coffee, a hint of smoke and scotch, and finishes with a bit of coffee acidity. This one could almost have been aged in whiskey barrels, but it's more subtle than those, which I like. The taste is superb for me.

The feel is medium, the carbonation is just a tad too much.

Overall a great brew. I will definitely be coming back for this one, would be perfect with chocolate desserts or in the cold of winter.
