Pours red/brown with a two finger foamy off-white head with a touch of light tan, leaves some foamy rings of lacing and holds a very solid cap.
Aroma is malty and fruity, along with some herbal, grainy, and grassy character, yeast/bread, can pick up a hint of smoke and some spice...wonder if that is the heather tips? Not familiar with heather so I cannot say for sure. Moderate to good strength.
Flavor features a good bit of dark fruity esters, belgian yeast, some caramel, molasses, toffee, and a touch of chocolate, quite malty and delicious overall.
Mouthfeel is foamy, velvety, rich, and creamy without being too thick or heavy, soft carbonation.
Mmmmm this is what I expect a Belgian-style Scotch Ale to be, wonderfully done!

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.
