bottle to tulip glass.

LOOK:Dark brown with the slightest maroonish hue. Healthy off white head, fades to a small lasting head. Great retention.
AROMA: grape, barley, touch of wood and/or smoke.
TASTE: Raisin, plum, brandy, bread, fruitcake.
FEEL: Medium to full bodied. Creamy and very smooth.

One of the better scotch ales I've had.

Wow, this is great, it pours a dark amber but still able to see through it. The smell is of dark fruits, raisin manly to me. The taste is of fig, raisin and a good blend of malts. Somewhat thick to drink but not unpleasant. Overall much better than I had expected.

Pours a dark reddish brown, head dissipates quickly. Some floaty chunks.
Nose is apple, apricot, raisin, plum.
Taste is toffee, raisin, apple, cranberry, maybe some coffee at the end.
Mouthfeel is fairly creamy, nice bubbles and moderate thickness.
Overall, very enjoyable. Thankful for an opportunity to try a style that I don't seek out very often.

Hot damn, we have ourselves a winner here, my children. Rich and velvety like Emily Rarajkowski popping out of a cake, I’m feelin’ this one. Smooth scotch flavor, smooth malts... can I say yes please?
