I believe a 2013 bottle, but not sure....Alesmith...achem

A: Pours a dark golden slightly reddish color with a 2 finger fluffy kahki colored head. Some noticeable lacing on the glass along with some alcohol legs.

S: Some caramel, toffee, roasted malts prevailing. Some slight dark cherry wafts through the aroma as well.

T: Reminds me of a red cream soda spiked with something. Getting that rich caramel malts, with toffee back drop and some of that cherry I got off the aroma. Creamy and smooth. Getting rich malts with a hint of smokiness. Slighty bready as well.

M: Smooth, full bodied with a slight alcohol burn.

O: A fantastic beer that I highly recommend. Esp if you're a scotch ale fan as I am. This cranks the style up ten fold, creating a fuller bodied experience. The alcohol makes its presence known but isn't an ass about it.

Served slightly chilled into a snifter.

Pours a sable brown with half an inch of dark tan head that recedes leaving moderate surface layer and moderate lacing.

Aromas of caramelized sugars, dried fruits with a hint of mineral and alcohol in the background.

Flavors follow through the aromas with a touch of bitter coffee.

Medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation and a sweet finish and moderate aftertaste.

Overall a very nice beer. My only complaint is that I expect a little more smoky flavor from the style. Would go very nice with some sweet BBQ.
