Many thanks to blackie for the bottle.
Appearence: Clear, deep ruby brown with a tan head. Head's pretty small and dissapears quickly.
Smell: The smell is smooth and balanced, yet wonderfully complex. Molasses, caramel, alcohol, plums, dates, and so much more come to mind. Definitly a wonderful sniffer.
Taste and Mouthfeel: I really don't know how to describe this beer. The taste is just so utterly smooth and balanced. The flavors are about the same as the smell, but the flavors aren't what make this beer. It's the perfectm dead-on balance and mouthfeel.
Drinkability and Overall: Definitly a kick ass wee heavy. Nothing better than a good Scotch Ale, and this one is one of the bests. I'd love to have this one again, but I know I'm going to have a hell of a time finding. If you love malt-bombs and scotch ales, seek this one out. You won't be dissapointed.
Glass: Standard oversized wine glass.
Music: "Sigh" by Praful
Serving type: bottle

On tap at Brickhouse.
A. Pours a pretty mahogany with a nice off-white head.
S. Fruity nose. Grapey, yeasty, toasted grain.
T. Taste brings fig, caramel, light roasted grain, cooked sugar, hint of hop bitterness, chocolate.
M. Thick-bodied with light carbonation.
O. Almost too sweet, yet not quite. I like this.

3.58/5 rDev -11.4%

A- Deep red, getting to that brown stage. Head is tanned and about a finger and a half. Light lacing.
S- The smell is sweet, to be expected. It is caramelly, and sweet bready, with some complexities that hint at but never really develop into smokiness.
T- Same here. The sweetness is on par for the style with some lightly roasted notes as well, but it is pretty much sweet front to back. The caramel is there, but chocolate/smoke/other just wasn't present for me.
M- Medium-full body. Smooth, somewhat low carbonation.
O- A decent wee heavy, but I didn't find it as complex as some reviewers. A decent drinking beer, but I didn't find it to be outstanding.
