Pours a clear light brown/dark red with a creamy, dense head one finger thick. Great head retention, equally great lacing, leaving layers like rings on a tree. Semi sweet chocolate and toasted rye dominate the nose. Wheat bread is in there with some earthy hops. Semi sweet chocolate and toasted pumpernickel start the taste. Some sweetness come out and is broken by a grassy, dirt/copper bitterness. Balanced feel and finish.
This doesn't fit guidelines well, as it's a roasty but sweet beer. The former makes it an Amber, the latter a Scottish. I'm not much of a Scotch Ale guy, so I like the experiment but ultimately that's what it is. I feel the same way about this beer as a cool concept car: fun to think about and try, but impractical for real life use.
