Had this at Famous Dave's in Greece, NY last weekend.

Wall of creamy foam covers the sides, bit of smoke in the flavor as well as the aroma. Peat is also present (especially in the finish) as well as loads of toffee throughout. Medium body and quite well made.

Serving type: on-tap

I got this beer at a bar in the Rochester region without any prior knowledge of the Rohrbachs brewery.

Appearance - Dark and dense for a scotch ale with good carbonation. Poured from a pitcher into pint glasses and got good head with decent retention.

Smell - Burnt caramel and some earthiness.

Taste- Has a dense chewy mouthfeel that fits with the caramel flavors and lingers well after a short buildup to full flavor.

Serving type: on-tap
