22oz. A dark brown/mohoghanny pour, thin layer of off white on top. Some minimal lacing.

Aroma, Caramel, toffee, leather and some toasted malt.

Taste, very peaty, leathery. Toasted malt, burnt brown sugar, walnut. Some herbally tea. Sweetness is pretty subdued. Maybe just a tad much on the herbal notes. Maybe not though, just favors the nutty, leathery, peaty side of the style.

Heavier side of light body, good carbonation. About right here, drinks well, would have like a richer sweet side though. Still certainly worth a try.

Tawny light brown pour, dark brown in the glass, tan foam on the surface. Texture is on the creamy side, with minimal spotty lacing in the glass.

Nutty and woody aroma, malty and possibly peated but no actual smoke resent. Dry, not sweet.

Flavors follow suit, malty and smooth, creamy with a nicely full feel, though it's actually fairly light on the palate. Lightly toasty and bready with a vague dried dark fruit note and a dry bitter finish. pretty smooth and drinkable, would pick this up again before it's gone for another decade...

#13 of 15 Beers for 15 Years Series - had on tap at Two Brothers Tap House - Warrenville, IL

Poured a deep chestnut color with some ruby hues, topped with a thin, beige head, decent retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aromas are earthy, peat, woodsy, malty. Tastes are earthy and malty, peat, woody, brown sugar, nutty, caramel, toffee, raisin. High point of this ale is the mouth-feel: medium-to-full bodied, creamy, and smooth. Finishes a bit spicy with a tingle on the tongue. Overall, nice representation of the style.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

Part 13 in the Brothers' 15-part anniversary series. This stuff pours a clear deep ruby-brown topped by a finger of ashen khaki foam. The nose comprises lightly-roasted caramel, buttery toffee, a few pinches of cocoa powder, and a vague sense of earthiness. The taste brings in more of the same, with a touch more cocoa, a slight nuttiness, and a tiny oak component. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda grainy feel. Overall, a solid, unassuming Scotch ale, one that, though technically proficient, doesn't wanna make things swing.
