22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass and paired with BBQ. Served at 50F.
A - Deep mahogany body, very still and a lazy layer of foam forms at the top. Wet legs, doesnt stick so lacing is not the best, not a real concern for me though...
S - Sweet barleycakes, fresh cut wood. Hint of citrus zing, rich roasted grains smell.
T - Very peaty and oaky, reminiscent of Scotch. Mildly smoky. Sweet malt invades as well, alot going on. Complex, but wildly so.
M - Feels wet and oily on the palate, lingers in the back of the throat with that peaty taste, slight warming sensation as well. Pretty good.
O - As a Scottish ale I say well done, prefer it over Kiltlifter and Old Chub hands down. As an amber/red I say no, theres way to much going on here to be one of them.

On-tap at Tizley's in Poulsbo, WA. Poured into a pint pilsner. Clear deep red-brown color, nice one-finger head, then moderate lacing. Aroma is deep and inviting--malt, caramel, fruity, with mild floral hops. Flavor starts with malt and caramel, some toffee, nicely balanced, with moderate citrus hops finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin. Overall this is a really outstanding red ale, I really like it!
