A: This poured a clear dark copper with a little off white head.
S: It smelled like salted caramel and roasted barley malt and rich toffee.
T: It tasted like salted caramel and sweet toffee, with some roasted barley and honey biscuit. It had a clean mostly sweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a really nice scotch ale, with scent and taste just as advertised. The body was ok, and the finish was smooth with well hidden alcohol, so it was easy to drink. Not quite top tier, but still a solid brew.

Pours a deep, dark copper with an off white head.

Smells of salt, caramel, and taffy.

Taste is salt up front giving way to a caramel malt middle.

This is a malt bomb without much to balance it out. The malt however is damn tasty. This is a delicious scotch ale, perhaps the only the problem is there is little to balance it out, but the salt is a nice interplay.
