A: Pours a dark brown, near black color. A two finger beige head forms, and recedes to a ring in a minute. Light lace is left behind.
S: Toffee, dark fruits, a hint of roast. Just a touch of earthy hops, and a prevalent smoke malt aroma throughout.
T: Follows the nose with a toffee sweetness, just a hint of roast, dark fruits and earthy, tea like hops. Then a nice and balanced smokiness take over. Everything is really well balanced.
M/D: A medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp and smooth at the same time. Not overly viscous or thick. Really enjoyable to drink. I can put a few away with ease.

Well made in my opinion. It is fairly simple, and has great balance. Nothing is dominate, and an all around joy to drink. I need to get some more.

Hmm. An oddly coffee-forward Scotch Ale. A good deal of leather, too, which I detest in beer.

I'm a big fan of Central Waters, especially for their barrel-aged program. And I have friends who rave about Slainte. But I do not like this brew.

Super well done very traditional scotch ale.
Nothing about this beer is out of line - all perfect to style (at least for me) and right on point for where a scotch ale should be. good malt sweetness and backbone with the right bite in toward the finish of the yeast - This and Lake Louie Warped Speed make me think that Wisconsin is really an outpost of Edinburgh!
