Pours an orangey-ruby, cloudy with short-lived fizzy off-white head. There's a little bit of lacing. The aroma is fairly simple, with just nondescript malt sweetness. The taste is about the same. There's not a lot to either. It does have a decent weight to the body, though. A surprising miss from Pike.

I had this in a borrowed thistle.
The color was a super dark red close to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell had some peaty/smokiness to an indulgent chocolatey goodness.
The taste was mainly the same in a sweet smoky way.
The mouthfeel was smoky smooth as it rolled over my tongue. Probably about a medium on the body.
Overall, good Scotch Ale I would have again.
