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
