Served in a pint glass.

A- Color is somewhere between brown and amber, leaning towards the brown. Holding it up to the light reveals a ruby delight! Quarter of a finger of head that disappeared the minute I took my eyes off the glass. Some light lacing. Straw highlights.

S- Opening the bottle and sweetness is there. Once I pour it there is noticeable presence of alcohol. I smell some caramel, which makes sense for a scotch/wee heavy. Some toast too.

T- Very balanced. No noticeable hops. Mostly sweet caramel. Some coffee on the finish. A flutter of dark fruit.

M- chewy and viscous. Little carbonation.

O- My first scotch ale and I would call this a keeper. I have yet to have anything from Founder's that I dislike. They make quality beer.
