3.79/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 50°F

Appearance: Dark brown with a tent of ruby red when put up to the light. One finger soapy off white head.

Smell: Malts and dark fruits.

Taste: Very malt forward with some dark fruits thrown in. Perhaps a bit sweeter than I prefer in a beer. Needs more smoke to take away from the sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Hides it's abv. well as I don't pick up much alcohol.

Overall: I've only had a few scotch ales and haven't completely developed a taste for them yet, but this is on par with what I've had in the style, although I think it needs to be more smokey. Solid beer nonetheless

Serving type: bottle
