look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- deep copper to an almost mohoghany color. nice off white head good retention and considerable lacing

S- the smoked malt notes come through. almost campfire like. Very interesting smell

T- thick malty flavors with the smoke definitely showing through almost dominating the flavor but in a desirable way. No hop presence at all to me. The 8% abv is just slightly noticeable. Very nice

M- not quite as thick as the smell and taste would lead you to believe which makes it very drinkable

O- big malty, smoky goodness. Definitely unique and what I would consider the other side of the spectrum from ipas. Pretty much no hops that I can detect and for someone that loves ipas this was a great change of pace. All the intensity I love just a different delivery. Awesome beer

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Picked up in part of variety pack in Cincy as not available in my market. An appealing burnt cardinal red color with creamy 1 finger albeit slow poured yet short lived head in tall German .5 L glass (wonderful lacing). Smell was absolute malty with a small bit of prune cocoa contrast happening. Mouthfeel and drink was naturally a solid malt backbone with smooth lightly smoked toasted tootsie roll poured over just the right amount of select hops to give this scotch ale a medium sweet but pleasjng finish. Impressive if your first go at a scotch ale as not to smoky. Effervescence died very soon so swallowing is quite unimpeded. Higher abv is hidden so you'll quickly feel this great ale. Good anytime
