Poured this into a snifter

Look - bee dark reddish brown. Slight head but went away quick
Smell - very malty and sweat
Taste - sweat and bitter that lingers for a few seconds. Very strong.
Feel - light carbonation and surprisingly thick tasting
Overall - all Scotch ales are unique. I like it a lot.

This is a top notch scotch ale. I have had it both on tap and from the bottle.
It pours a rich redish brown with a thin head that laces well. The aroma is malt- malt- malt with hints of fruit and vanilla, toffee.
The first taste is satisfyingly sweet with a bitter end that calls for another.
Love this beer and this brewery.
