12 ounce aluminum can without freshness date.
Pours clear red-edged brown with a good inch of thick tan foam. The head slowly subsides to a creamy blanket and rich lace. The smell is quite peaty, a bit smoky and with an undercurrent of alcoholic raisins and figs. The flavor is more grainy; full of husky sweet oatmeal with strong peat and dark fruit notes. Some bare alcohol bite at the slightly sour finish. Body is very smooth and creamy initially, though some carbonation sneaks in by the swallow. Not the best Scotch Ale, but altogether pretty likable and an entirely different beast than the draft variety.

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
