T: Toffee, banana, light sweetness, rubbing alcohol, earthy, peat, clean linen. Some corn, light bitterness, coffee.

M: Thick, syrupy body, medium carbonation.

This scotch ale pours a dark mahogany color with a generous off-white head that quickly gives way to a nice film and lacing. The aroma is very malty with hints of vanilla, alcohol, caramel, peat and a little yeast. The mouth is pleasantly thick and sticky. The flavor is malty but not overly sweet. It is a balanced blend of booze and earth. Not the best scotch ale I've had but not bad at all.
