Pours with a two finger off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Leaves a touch of lace.
Smells of caramel toffee, very sweet, and fruity cherry
Taste is very unique, the toffee caramel apple cherry flavors really come through. There's a slight touch of hoppy fruit there on the end.
Mouthfeel makes me think this beer is only 5% not 6.8%. It's a little bubbly and I wouldn't mind it being a little more sticky feeling for how sweet it tastes.
Overall this is a very nice beer, I might not need to try this on tap however and I doubt I will ever buy a case. It's a definite try though since I could see some finding this beer fantastic.

Having had this fantastic Scottish ale in bottle form, the tap version is just as good if not better. Pours a deep amber with light quickly dissipating head that leaves light white lacing. Smell of caramel, toffee, fresh biscuit, with a light peat smell. Taste is excellent with rich caramel malts and peat malt shinning through. Silky smooth mouthfeel, refreshing for a beer coming in at a higher ABV. Light toffee taste in the back with caramel malts and almost zero bittering hops. Excellent as always and one I would suggest to turn newbie beer lovers onto as well as the experienced beer nut. Cheers.
