Appearance: red-orange, small head, and good lacing.
Smell: malty and dark.

This is an ok brew. It isn't terribly complex, but it is slightly watery.

poured a dark amber color with a very small head. Picking up some caramel and dark fruits. Can pick up the sweetness in the smell immediatly. Taste of dark fruits with good carbonation. Medium bodied which fits this beer well. Worth having a glass and maybe 1 or 2 in the fridge.

Quality, well-rounded beer. Between dark amber and mahogany. Tight light khaki head. Deep nutty maltiness. Bready with thick caramel, but dry enough to keep it quaffable. Even bitterness. Light and smooth hop flavor - earthy, grassy, blackberries. Bit of fruit from the yeast too. Where better to try a brewery's flagship than the brewery itself?

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a NB globe glass.
A - Pours a brownish, translucent amber. Tawny, light tan finger width head. Very nice sudsy lacing on the glass. Carbonation appears moderate; even a little light. Very nice looking beer.
S - The nose is not overly strong. Toasty malt aromas as well as some sweeter caramel notes. Not getting much in the way of hop character here.
T - The taste is similar to the aroma for the most part. Bready and toasty, with just a touch of hop bitterness through the middle, but nothing crazy though. Finish is smooth and a little bit sweet.
M - Medium bodied. The carbonation is just right, and lends a nice crispness that gives this brew an added bit of levity.
O - Overall, a very nice beer. Can't believe that it took me this long to get to it, but I think I will be coming back for a full sixer sooner rather than later.

Sweet Merciless Malty Goodness...
A solid browned amber with a pillowy head.
Roasted/Toasted Malts with various different levels there is a bit of brown sugar and dried fruit bit.
Deep and multiple malt layers that is full and rounded, dark malt flavor. The lack of hops drives the beer towards a brown ale territory. It lacks the typical bitterness that I associate Scotch Ales
Mouthfeel - Oaty Smooth
Overall - I like this beer. Its one of the deeper Scotch Ale I have enjoyed. It is definitely work seeking out.
