Deep brown pour. Delicious beer. I really liked the nitro version of this beer. This one holds its own for sure. Malty and rich. Great beer. Man I love this one. Sweet and warm if that makes any sense at all.

Poured from the growler.
A personal favorite. This scotch ale pours a mahogany brown with tinges of red and a light
thin tan head. Nose of caramel, light coffee, light smoky malt, and high alcohol content. The
flavors are sweet up front, silky smooth mouthfeel, caramel and light chocolaty coffee on the
back. Also at the end is a light smokiness and a thick warming high alcohol presence to make
this one of the better scotch ales on the market. Strong and assertive it is to be reckoned with.

Cheers

Wow, I was not expecting this beer to punch me in the face, but it did! I should have read the 8% ABV on the can before buying it, since I usually like my Scotch ales a little lighter. But it's a tasty beer, though I think it might be a little better if it was in fact lighter. The alcohol kind of overwhelmed this one. The sweetness and alcohol content combine to make this an intense, heavy beer.
