22 oz bomber, poured into a large mug.
A: Muddy reddish-brown color with a modest off-white head.
S: Lots of toasted notes and caramel. Very sweet nose, but not sickly sweet.
T: Intense caramel and toffee sweetness dominates the taste. There's just enough hop presence to keep it from becoming too sweet. A warm, toasty character wraps it all together. Pretty nice.
M: A sturdy medium body, and on the lower end of the carbonation scale. Feels silky and a tad slick on the tongue. Warm, caramel aftertaste.
D: A sipping beer, and it gets more complex as it warms.
This is what I envisioned a good Scotch ale would be. Big and robust, sweet, toasty and smooth. The 8% alcohol might keep this from being an everyday beer, but I could certainly make it a regular in my fridge. This may not be the beer for you if you don't like toasted caramel flavors. I loved it!
