4.38/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Deep amber with a decent head.
Aroma: Chocolate is the main thing I am getting.
Taste: Chocolate, bready, maltiness with a little bit of smokiness, warming alcohol with some slight dark fruits. Smooth and creamy for sure and easy to drink.
Overall: Finally an American brewery gets this style right!! I was skeptical of buying beer in a can, but everyone who knows good beer kept telling me to try this and I am glad I did. Smooth and silky and so easy to drink at 8% This is how a Scotch Ale should be!! I agree with the bros. to put this one in a glass and enjoy. Cheers!!

I wanted to like this beer, but my initial reactions were not positive at all. I gave it a 2.50 rating within the first two minutes. Obviously I deleted that rating. I'm somewhat new to the craft beer scene, and I found the taste syrupy and bitter and kinda gross. But as I approached the bottom, I started to warm up to it and the beer seemed to settled down. I don't think it was simply the alcohol taking effect and me growing acclimated to the new taste, though I'm sure that played a part. But the beer seem to change consistency midway through. I found it quite good at the end. I definitely want to try again
