Let me start by noting that I'm not 100% on the ABV of this beer, I'm going by what the bartender told me.

Dark mahogany pour with burgundy highlights. Rather hazy with a small, but creamy beige head. Moderate lace.

Nose is filled with caramel and honey malt, soft wildflowers, a hint of peaty smoke, and notes of pine hops.

Sweet caramel and brown sugar malt flavors dominate. As it warms, lots of other flavors come out: light fruit, peat smoke, a hint of roasty chocolate, and a pleasantly large hop presence of pine, floral, and even citrus. Nicely balanced, unlike typical Scottish ales.

Body is medium, with a chewy, slightly coarse texture and a creamy mouthfeel. Probably the tastiest Scottish ale I've had, this style normally eludes me due to it's extremely malty nature. (793 characters)
