A: Deep brown with hints of ruby around the edges. A small head forms and quickly dissipates to a thin layer around the edge of the glass.
S: Roasted malts, caramel and a touch of dark fruit ... raisin or fig perhaps.
T: Roasty toffee notes up front, caramel and a touch of cocoa in the middle and a mild hop bitterness late. There is a slight alcohol bite present as the beer warms up.
M: Low on carbonation, but well suited to the style. Just a bit slick on the back of the tongue.
D: I enjoy the flavors, but would enjoy them more if they were a bit more pronounced. The slick mouthfeel and alcohol bite detract a bit.

Slightly cloudy brownish pour with a dark cream colored head. The glass I had had some lacing present throughout. Somewhat non-descript aroma of roasted malt, raisin caramel.
On a side note, none of the beers I tried at the Brewery has much of a nose to them. Not sure if it was me or the atmosphere.
Roasted malt, toffee, raisin flavors. Some charcoal especially through the finish. Mild warming from the alcohol, but I did not think it was very present other than that. Brought a growler home of this, but that was more for the souvenir and the Octoberfest would have been worthy of bringing home also.

This was a nice scotch ale. I had a really good one in PA over the summer and have been in the habit of trying them when I get a chance but I have been consistently disappointed with the lack of flavor in the scotch ales that i have tried. This scotch ale is not of the smoky variety that is very popular (with me if nowhere else). However it was not disappointing. A good flavor and a strong taste up front. The only disappointment is that the flavor is still just a little simple and it does not linger long on the taste buds.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, vibrant, ruby coloring with a dense, low profile, off-white head. Nose of roast, rich and tangy caramel sweetness, with nutty highlights. Flavors are roast forward, with a rich blast of caramel, scotch, and mild chocolate highlights. Very tangy and layered throughout, with a full, smooth body. Rich, sweet, roasted aftertaste, with a very smooth finish. Heavy beer, and a very good sipper.

Appearance: pours a clear dark amber / almost brown color with a 1" head that falls quickly. No lacing develops.
Smell: caramel and malt sweetness dominates the aroma and is pleasant.
Taste: nice malt profile with some caramel, some ripe fruit sweetness, hint of earthiness, a mild bitterness and a hint of alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smooth at the finish. Relatively short aftertaste.
Drinkability: easy to drink this beer and works well with the shepards pie I was eating.

Pours black with a tan lacing, a little bit of brown glow around the edges.
Toasted biscuit malt aromas with some toffee and caramel.
Same toastiness in the flavor with biscuity malts, caramel, cocoa, coffee, and a woody mild hoppiness.
Full body with a stinging carbonation on the tongue.
Very nice Scotch ale, darker than I was expecting but has a very nice flavor and worth trying.

3.13/5 rDev -17.6%
Appearance: Arrives at the table with a chocolate color, little head and an inability to lace
Smell: Malty aroma with roasty elements
Taste: Starts with a deep malty flavor that betrays some roast with an unusual fruity fig element; after the swallow, a phenolic plastic flavor emerges
Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation
Drinkability: The weakest of the Front Street beers I tasted; marred by the phenols and the lack of carbonation

The beer poured amber brown with a tan/brown head which stood tall and proud and laced the glass.
The aroma was malty with caramel and toffee and a slight smoke.
The flavor was malty with caramel, toffee, slight chocolate and a slight smokiness. Also a slight diacetyl was present. There was some bitterness present, but only enough to keep the malt in check.
The finish was just off dry with a malty, buttery toffee impression that lasts into the aftertaste. The body was medium.
Nice example of a scottish ale.
22 ounce bottle purchased at WineSellar and More. Bottled on June 16, 2004.

On-tap at Flying Saucer Raleigh served in a standard pint-glass a dark almost black with ruby highlights and a barely there head. Aroma is burnt caramel, molasses, dried fruits and leather. The taste is loads of dried fruits and molasses with a lingering molasses finish. The beer is somewhat heavy with a decent alcohol presence, definitely a sipper. This is a somewhat impressive first impression for me from Front St, I look forward to trying what else they have to offer.
