Absolutely gorgeous cognac brown coloring with the lightest of fluffy, bright white heads.

The aromas were sweet barley grain with tinges of chocolate and caramel but underneath it all I smelled peas....earthy, vegetative green peas, yuck.

The flavor is Barley! Smooth, sweet barley with a pronounced grain and some wine like qualities.

The feel is firm, with a nice thickness and what appears to be a low carbonation. I did detect a slight bite at the end of the swallow which could have been the 8 pct ABV or just a bit of carbonation.

A light brownish body with good head and lace retention. The nose is sturdy and strong, with a good amount of both sweetness and breadiness and there is a little bit of booze in the aroma. Beer isn't exactly chewey but it is a filling body, goes down smooth, slightly creamy, and there is good balance between what appears to be sweet malts like caramel and toffee and dark fruits and some heavier, roasted malts. Minor hoppiness on end adds a little sharpness to finish.

12 oz bottle into tulip. best before 10/13.

A: slightly opaque. dark brown body with some light brown edges. head is slightly brown in a sea of a white foam. tightly bubbled. decent retention, minor spots of lacing.

S: dark fruits and toffee twang. perhaps a little bit of oak in there. minor heat as well. the dark fruit, plum and fig mostly, remind me more of a Belgian dubbel or even a quad than a scotch.

T: a lot of caramel and toffee. a little bit of coffee. a cola like sweetness right in the middle of the sip. heat gives a little zip to this brew. plum lingers long into the finish. hops on the backseat this is going in the right direction.

M: moderate amount of carb on a full body. works well.

D: not a bad scotch here. really similar to a Belgian ale to me. if there was a little bit of peat in here it would set it apart and really set it off, imo.
