3.6/5  rDev -10.4%

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Toffee. A hint of oxidation. Caramel with that distinct scotch ale aroma.

Taste - Sweet caramel. Toffee. Buttery. Nutty. Slightly bitter in the back with just a hint of oxidation.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Tastes good, not very interesting, though.

Dark amber color with a red tint. One finger of head that slowly settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Not the strongest of aromas. Get the caramel, toffee, and bready malt with floral and earthy notes. No sign of alcohol.

Flavor is smooth, rich, and clean. Wonderful caramel and toffee flavor. Minor earthy notes. Alcohol is well hidden with barely any warmth. I wonder if the brewer used an American yeast? Do not get much for fruity esters or buttery byproducts.

Big body with excellent carbonation that gives the body a creamy mouthfeel. Well done.

Nothing too special about the flavor of the beer but still well done.

4/5  rDev -0.5%

Appearance: Cloudy brown, good head.

Smell: Toffee, earthy, dark fruits.

Taste: Nice sweetness, then fruity-with dark cherry notes. Earthy, leathery finish. Lighter feel than expected for a strong beer.

Overall: Picked up a bottle at the brewery to try. It's a solid scotch ale, hits the spot for a big malty beer for the cold Minnesota winter.
