3.43/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Poured a deep amber/orange color in morning sunlight. Hazy, with ample visible carbonation and a creamy head that retained rather well. Thick, creamy lacing persists all the way down the glass. Regrettably for me, this is the best part of the beer.
S - Predominately roasted malt aromas. I expected to smell something a little sweeter.
T - Not really what I expected. This may be my first Scotch Ale, so that could be a big part of it. The roasty aroma that I smelled is there, but it plays a lesser role. The dominant flavor is some kind of bitter coffee type flavor. It's the kind of bitterness from coffee, but without the coffee flavor, if that makes sense. Seems to be some smoke present. Not really a strong combination for my palate.
M - Medium bodied, but it a little more watery than I expected given all the visible carbonation. Not a fan of the aftertaste.
O - I bought a 12-pack for my wife and I'm glad that she likes it, because I wouldn't really jump at the chance to have another one. Not a terrible beer, but just doesn't suit my tastes.

Poured from bottle into pilsner glass. Phat Tuesday celebration prior to sacrificing beer for Lent.
A - Light brown with a great head and lacing trailing all the way down the glass.
S - Subtle malty sweet.
T - Effervescent malt: Not overwhelming, but not disappointing - just right.
Overall: I love this beer. Hibernator might be a slight exaggeration in the sense that this really isn't a "heavy" beer, but, it is most satisfying. Strong enough for winter but light enough for spring.
