Purchased a bottle of this at Boonton Liquor Outlet in Boonton, NJ. Into a snifter, it poured a dark reddish-caramel brown, with two fingers of beige head; modest visible carbonation, and great retention and lacing. Smelled of sugar, maple, caramel, apple, and slight smokey peat. The taste revealed caramel apple, pear, and candi sugar, with a slight smoke/earthy peat finish. Medium-bodied, creamy smooth, and less carbonation than expected. Good for sessioning, but missing the flavor intensity that I am accustomed to getting from a good Scotch-style ale.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/2/2010. Pours lightly hazy dark brick red color with a nice 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big molasses, raisin, toffee, toast, caramel, chocolate, pepper, earth, clove, floral, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity. Taste of raisin, pear, molasses, toffee, toast, chocolate, biscuit, caramel, nuttiness, pepper, earth, floral, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of raisin, molasses, toffee, toast, chocolate, nuttiness, pepper, and earth on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity and balance of flavors that are nicely robust; zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent scotch ale with a Belgian twist. Very well balanced, robust, and complex; very smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this one. Glad I was finally able to try it.
