look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown/Amber color with a nice one finger fluffy light brown head. Nice retention and lacing.
Smell: The aroma was very sweet and biscuity, with just a touch of caramel and toffee.
Taste: Sweet and malty up front, with some nice caramel and chocolate notes, and just a bit of a dark fruit taste on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Thick, smooth and silky, with just a tinge of alcohol burn.
Overall: I really like this beer, much more so than the nitro version - it has just the right taste and feel, but watch out, this angry scot will will club you down if you're not careful at 8% ABV.

A - Pours an almost black, ruby mahogany brown. Forms a nice thick and creamy 2 finger, medium tan head. Whispy lacing left on the walls of the glass.
S - Malts, chocolate malt, peat smoke, caramel, and pipe tobacco.
T - Sweet malty smoke, toffee, caramel and a slightly bitter finish which perfectly balances the sweetness.
O - A perfect representation of the scotch ale style. 5 star scotch ale. If you're a fan of the wee heavys, definitely give this one a try, its highly sessionable.
V - Great value, comes in a six pack of cans.
