A-pours a dark chestnut with light ruby highlights and a thing layer of creamy head that sticks to the glass

S-sticky caramel malt, rum soaked raisins, toffee, and brown sugar

T-taste is similar to the smell but with a bit more bitterness and smoke to the taste. Getting a light cola taste.

M-very light medium body with light to medium carbonation

Overall one of the better Scottish ale's I've had as it is not cloyingly sweet. The bitterness helps to balance out the sweet malt

Poured at cellar temperature from a bottle into a tulip glass. Coffee-colored liquid builds a velvety head that lingers for a minute before receding into a thin, rocky layer, leaving a coating of lace on the glass. Nose is heavy on caramel with a hint of creosote.

Taste is malt-forward but a citric tang mediates it at midpalate. Peaty presence dominates in the lingering, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is velvety with delicate carbonation. Lighter than many Scotch ales I've tasted. Nicely balanced. This isn't a malt hammer.

I'm a fan of CW's Satin Solstice/Solitude imperial stout, but I like this even more. Excellent effort.

The Central Waters Scottish Ale is decent and worth a try. The beer poured a deep amber....almost opaque with thin head that left a little lacing. The scent carried earth, peat and some malt. The taste had a nice malt base with a slight roast and earth. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a decent scotch ale.
