4.03/5  rDev +11.3%

12oz bottle.

A: Clear, rich copper body under two inches of fine, creamy eggshell head. Tremendous retention for the style and some spotty lace. Lovely.

S: Rich toffee, spicy alcohol, and some toasted breadiness. Quite nice.

T: Spicier here, with peppery notes atop the sweet caramelized malt. Long, warming, bittersweet finish. Tasty.

M: Rich, creamy, full-bodied. Maybe a bit too frothy, but still good.

O: This is certainly less exciting than many of the recent Thumbprints, but I found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable Scottish Ale that, although I enjoyed it in the summer, impressed me with its suitability as a Winter Warmer. Nice and spicy, beautifully caramelized, and warming without being boozy. What's not to like?

Cheers!

Pours a brownish color with a nice head. Nose is molasses, toffee, and caramel malts. Taste follows the nose well. Lots of toffee and caramel malts with a touch of toasted cereal malts in the background. Really nice scotch ale from New Glarus, and another winner from the Thumbprint series.
