Pours a nice mahogany red, with a cream head that dissipates quickly. Persistent lacing.
Smell is a candied malt, a little like molasses, with its darker flavors.
Taste follows the smell and adds alcohol and hops. I was surprised how hoppy this was for a scotch ale (but not that surprised from Oskar Blues). I think that is the secret for this beer, enough hop bitterness to keep those sweet malts in balance.
Overall a really nice scotch ale, certainly an American take on the style.

Malty scent with a sweet caramel taste and mild hops. Medium heavy with dark amber body.
