12oz bottle poured into a room temp pint glass.

A- Poured a muddy looking reddish brown color with a 1-finger khaki-tan colored head that quickly faded to thin film. The head had a brief appearance of heavy creaminess. There was some visible carbonation through the murkiness. Some lacing.

S- Scotch roasted malts, molasses, toffee sweetness.

T- Sweet roasted mats, caramel, chocolate, molasses.

M- Thick and chewy. Light carbonation. Some alcohol on the finish.

O- This beer overcame its sweetness and poor looks with big flavors. It's a good one.

Pours a ruby caramel color with a healthy mound of lemon-tinted froth with excellent retention. Aroma smells of brown sugar, caramel, and a robust nutty aroma with a hint of milk chocolate--terrific complexity. Flavor tastes of maple syrup and toasted nuts with a healthy dose of hops to balance. The hops tend toward Cascade, with appreciable grapefruit manifesting as the beer warms. Malt and bitterness vacillate in the middle, each attempting to muscle out the other before eventually reaching a respectable detente. Roasted notes and dark chocolate come through in the finish, and a stickiness lingers on the lips after imbibing. Lively carbonation lends a creamy texture that helps mollify the bold flavor profile.

This is a complex and flavorful brew that extends itself well beyond your archetypal scotch ale. The synergy could be slightly better, but I must give it a nod for the slightly chocolately, nutty finish, which I found to be especially pleasing.
