4/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Growler to stemmed tulip pint. Keg to pint ~ 3 hours.

Look- Medium amber, half-finger of tight, frothy head. Good retention for a growler, nice lacing.

Smell- Caramel, toasted biscuit, cream soda, full, herbal undertone.

Taste- Mild, toffee-oatmeal feel. Light herbal, vaguely smoky something but dominated by a robust browned biscuit. Earthy bitterness and mild roast aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, medium carb. Silky, full, fairly dry finish. Cleaner than anticipated. Mild-moderate warming for the ABV and style.

Overall- Atypical, but certainly welcome. Absolutely worth trying, I'll definitely be looking for it.

Serving type: growler

4.26/5  rDev +6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

22 oz bottle (6/19/14 bottle date) pours a light brown color with a modest tan head. Average retention and not much lace.

Nose is very nice...lots of toffee and caramel with dried apricot fruitiness. Rich malts, very deep. Very much to style.

Oak-y, rich malts rock out with their sock out! ranges from semi-sweet chocolate all the way to light caramel and toast. Sweetness level is perfect, just enough to offset the toast. Nutty, full and smooth is how I would describe the mouthfeel. I am really surprised by this beer, one of the better scotch ales I have had. Very good, I might even say one of the better Texas beers out there.
