750ml poured into an Ommegang chalice.

A - Pours a deep, dark red with a cloudy, floating haze in the middle of the glass. To the sides and beneath this haze, however, is a nice clarity. About 2-fingers of tan head on this beer with good retention. A good bit of carbonation can be see rising from the etched bottom of the glass. Lacing is very good and nearly covers the entire glass.

S - The nose on this is nice with subtle complexities dancing around. I am getting the Scottish influence first, with a bit of the heather, caramel, and malt sweetness. Then the Belgian influence comes in through the yeast, giving it an enjoyable dichotomy. Some fruits and candied sugar make up the back-end of the nose.

T - This 'blend' of styles gives the flavor an interesting spin that I found myself liking quite a bit. As in the nose, the flavor starts with some malt sweetness, this time imparting a 'wee bit' of smokiness, like a kiss from the Islay region of Scotland. The heather as well is subtle but noticeable. From there the Belgian yeast comes through and prevails throughout the finish, bringing some spice, breadiness, and sugary fruits, especially apples and raisins. The finish is sweet and somewhat bitter.

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. Relatively full-bodied with a smooth edge to it. Somewhat dry finish.

D/O - Drinkability is moderately high. The Belgian side of this beer adds a creative new angle to the Scottish side, while also cutting down on the malt sweetness and caramel. Easily drinkable and inoffensive, I enjoyed my time with this beer.
