Two finger head with fairly large sized bubbles, pours a brown copper with very large bubbles for carbonation, and minimal lacing.
Smells of faint light toast with sweet cheap sugar smells coming through to dominate. After a few sips though, it's impossible to nearly smell anything again.
Taste is an initial first good bread characteristic, biscuit thing going on but then quickly replaced by carbonation. Finish is very soda pop in feel and carbonation takes over. Afterfinish and wet play bring out some faint brown sugar but the beer feels incredibly fizzy.
I think I'll pass on this one.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazy, dark, ruby copper coloring with no head. Aromas of scotch and dark sweet malts. Flavors are rich and roasted, with a dark caramel and sugar malt backbone. The aftertaste is roasty and subtle sweet tone, and it transitions to a clean, smooth finish. Midbodied, but light enough to not be imposing.

22oz bottle poured into a Pint Glass.
Pours a dark reddish-copper with a dense ivory head that settles to a decent haze and leaves some spotty lacing. Muted aromas of sweet caramel malt and buttery bread with just a touch of spicy hops. Taste is similar to the nose, amber malt, butter, and earthy hops. Nothing special. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly crisp, with a medium-thin body and decent carbonation. Unimpressive and fairly boring, no thanks.
